“Vacuum Plus Silcone Tape Equals Success”

With an inflatable SUP, I have been on the hunt to find a pump that will do most of the heavy lifting of getting my plank. My board is a Jimmy Lewis and can be rated up to 25 psi but works best with at least 18 psi. So you can image how much pleasure I’ve been having with the standard SUP pump having the board. I’ve been researching all of the options. Currently it seems there’s an unmet demand for a high pressure electric pump that costs around 100 dollars or less. I find it hard to justify to spending yet another 200 bucks for guide kpump or pimp high-end two point electric.Like all the other reviews, I discovered the pump itself adequate. And like everybody has said the hose is questionable.On the initial testing I had the pump going for about 5 minutes from car lighter socket. The board inflated nicely up to about 7psi then the hose started leaking atmosphere heavily and spitting paste the side out. Now it was obvious that acquiring up to even 10psi was not possible. I nearly made a decision to ask a return then and there.Other reviews opted to ship the whole unit back in hopes to get a better built hose, but I opt to find a remedy to the hose issue.For another 10 bucks I bought silicone tape, especially rescue tape. This stuff has a rating of holding very large pressure (100+ psi).Wrapping the leaky valve end with silicone tape made a massive difference and ceased the air flow completely. Testing inflation of the board again this time went past 7 psi as well as 13 psi with no air leaks. My battery ran down with no motor on. . woops. Next time I am certain that I will get it up to 14psi. If you receive a leaking hose such as me only add rescue tape into this area. Silicone tape is amazing. . Check out youtube to see how its implemented and everything else you can do with this. I have plenty leftover to patch or fortify the questionable hose as needed.Ok. . So I get to 14-15 psi with this item. . Nevertheless this beats heading to 17-18 psi completely manual. And to boot costs less than 100 bucks.I expect other folks find this useful and save them a few paddle time.Other notes:The lighter outlet has to be rated at 15 amps or better.May also get a kpump 220 for travel.Update July 2016: This thing still keeps moving. . The nozzle has held up well, as I am careful not to squash it when shifting my paddle gear around. . This pump also has an excess hose especially for lower stress things like floaty toys. I have to say that this thing stinks up floats and rafts in no time. It is sooo much better using a pump. Also works very nicely for blowing up an inflatable mattress. Considering all the inluded adaptors, this leads to a lot of possibilities.On matter to notice is that at higher elevations (6k+), the pump struggles a bit for high pressure and may require in order to operate the pump for longer than 10 minutes. I’m somewhat concerned that the unit will overheat or that I might be killing my car battery, so I try not run it any longer than that without remainder. I also think that with higher elevations a bit less air is required to acquire optimum inflation.
