Commercial outfitters swear that NRS Barrel pumps are built to last, get wet, and get used.
  • The NRS Barrel pump combines a wide base for sure footing while inflating a raft.
  • The 6.5' flexible hose tucks into the webbing carry handle for storing on your raft.
  • This 5" diameter pump stands 2.5' high and has a stroke volume of 2.03 Gal (7.7 liters).
  • This hand pump does not have a check valve. A check valve is necessary on military valves that don't have a one-way inflation feature.
  • There is a spare O-ring gasket in the bottom of the pump cylinder. If you need to re-lubricate the pump, we recommend lithium grease.
  • 5-year warranty.

NRS 5" Barrel Pump (1:03)

The NRS 5" Barrel Pump has been a favorite of outfitters and private boaters for years. This rugged, high-volume pump delivers over 2 gallons of air per stroke to quickly inflate rafts, catarafts, inflatable kayaks, SUP boards and that big air mattress you have! The 6.5' hose easily reaches all your valves. Easy to use, built to last.

How To: Maintain the NRS Barrel Pump (3:45)

The NRS 5" Barrel Pump is "built to last, get wet, and get used". It's a workhorse that private boaters and outfitters have come to love. With an output of 1.8 gallons of air per stroke, it makes short work of inflating rafts, catarafts and inflatable kayaks (IKs).

    Comments about NRS 5" Barrel Pump:

    A barrel pump is the reliable way to inflate whitewater rafts to full pressure. Electrical pumps don't provide full pressure, and shop vac systems requires AC power. The NRS pumps work well, but are bulky, with the stiff hose hard to stow. The connection of the hose to the pump base is a potential failure point. The plastic feet have broken on most of the pumps used by an outfitter that I guide for. The moving parts can be removed quickly for cleaning and o-ring replacement. The pump is easily lubricated through a top port.

      Comments about NRS 5" Barrel Pump:

      Im an Alaskan guide and use this pump for my 20 Zodiac MK V HD my Aire Lion 18' cataraft. It is a bit bulky but very comfortable to use and really moves some air. The only issue I have is the foot/base broke loose and it is now a pain to use. Also a clip to secure the hose would be nice.

      Great pump . It doesn't have a check valve.
      It would be great to invent a pump that deflates also.
      This is bomb proof pump.

          A:

          We suggest lithium grease. The blue marine-variety holds up best.

        Can this pump get wet? Can I have it in a raft on the river then expect it to work perfectly when needed?

          Keep it in a dry bag and you should have no problems. It does not like to get wet.

          Just finished 75 mi. float on the John Day with this pump in the boat. It
          worked great, even after getting wet. Used it every day to inflate air
          matresses in camp, top off the raft, and get the campfire going. Great
          pump.

          Yes and yes. It's a great pump and you should not be concerned about getting it wet.

          Yes, it can get wet. Just be sure there's no water in the pump barrel or hose before you start pumping.

          I keep mine in a tall, narrow dry bag on the raft while on the river.
          Worked perfectly following a flip in Lava Falls on the Grand Canyon. It is
          a great pump that has the ability to inflate a 16ft NRS raft from start to
          finish in less than 15 minutes if the need a rises.

        Q:

        Can this pump be used for SUP inflation? We need to get to at least 12 psi.

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          This pump would not be the best for your SUP inflation. It puts out a lot of volume, but consequently it would be hard to get up over 6-7 psi with it. The K-Pump 220, Item # 1717, does a great job on SUPs.

          A:

          Great pump for your Redshank, Pre-1999 Avon used military-style valves, in which case you'll want the Barrel Pump with the check valve, Item # 1709. Later Avons should have Leafield valves. The end of the pump hose will fit in these valves, but an adapter gives you a more hassle-free fit. If you have Leafield C7 valves, Item # 14821 is the adapter. If you have Leafield B7 or military valves, get Item # 1716.9.

        I have an NRS Osprey and I want to know if I need this pump with or without the check valve? Or does it matter?

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          The check valve is needed for valves like military valves, that don't have a one-way inflation feature. The Leafield C7 valves on your Osprey don't need the check valve.
