I take very good care of my equipment but life on the river is tuff. The pump gets used a lot maybe dirtbagkayaker should get out more. The nice thing about nrs is that they are quick to send me free replacement parts so I guess having several in the group there will always be two to bring on each trip.

Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

Well that's a no brainier. 365 would not be enough! But you can trust that my pump get used as much if not more other than most. I have a leaky old maravia and my pump is usually the only one we bring on trips.

One is maybe 2 years old, one is brand new. The older one needed a new o-ring, and was just generally hard to use because you'd have to stay in perfect rhythm as you pumped or it wouldn't work. We've used the brand new one for 3 trips now, and on the 2nd trip using the pump pressure would build up and the handle wouldn't go back down. NRS said we needed to make sure it was greased up. These are just our top-off pumps, we're not using them to inflate an entire boat.
We take good care of our stuff and know that you have to stay on top of maintenance. I was just surprised that any product would need work after using it only once or twice. Of course NRS and the dealer we got the pump from took care of everything for us, and didn't hesitate when we told them we'd actually prefer a Carlson. NRS will definitely take care of ya, gotta give them that.
