K pump questions

Hey there. I have a few duckies with 10 psi drop stitch floors. Will I be able to pump up or top off the floors with a K pump mini? I'd like to bring a pump down the river that's not a big bulky barrel pump. Thanks.

K-Mini is 16", K-100 is 22" and the K-200 is 29" to fit your needs. Each size comfortably reaches up to 9 psi.

Probably close enough?

Yeah, maybe so. I just want this pump for multi-day kayak trips. I have a barrel pump and electric pump at home.

It would suck to use as a fill pump, but you could get the job done. It is TINY.

I have duckies with the drop stitch floors too. I got a k-pump 20, for the dual stage pump. Not too big, and works great as a top off pump for the duckies..

I also have a couple inflatable paddle boards that I use it on. It is actually a pain to get them to the 15 or 20 lbs with the kpump, so I made an adapter for a portable tire inflator/compressor, which is nice because they can inflate while I work on other things.

But, yeah, for traveling down river, the kpump 20 is great., or maybe the 220 if you wanted a larger one, which I don't think you do.

I failed to mention the k20 and k220 were made with duckies and sup in mind. They have a high volume low pressure mode, and the easily switch to high pressure low volume. It really is the pump to look at for duckies.

Not that this is particular to duckies, but I really dislike the K200 pump. It is TOO LONG for use while you're in the raft. I know, top off before you leave shore...but stuff happens.

I'm 6'-6" with correspondingly long arms and I can just barely take a K200 to full extension on my outside fill valves. It was too long for my average-sized family and friends. I cut 6" out of mine, and it's closer in length to the K100, and now works great either on the water or on land.

It's a great pump while your feet are on terra firma.
