      Hi. I don’t know where it’s made, but I assume that any pump for a SEA kayak could handle salt water. While I have it on my boat, I’ve never used it.

      A:

      parts questions should be answered by the manufacturer.
      I have used that pump in salt water for 25 years, no problems-just rince when you are done.

      A:

      Couldn't disassemble the pump to check inside, but I am willing to bet the internal parts are plastic. Two screws on exterior may or may not be stainless. They seem superfluous as I couldn't pull the assembly apart even when i took them out (they may have used PVC glue). One rivet on top handle connects to the shaft - doubtful that is stainless. It appears shinier than aluminum rivets.
      Yellow parts (#6 Plastic) are made in China.
      I have used this pump pack-rafting on fresh water, but not on salt. I have used pumps like this for years, sea kayaking in warm and cold ocean water. No failures, though they can be "sticky" if they have been stored for months without having been rinsed in fresh water.
      I wouldn't sweat the components, and I doubt you would find a US made product. If that is a hang-up, I bet they wouldn't be that hard to make.
      Good Luck.

    Took this pump on the Colorado River - Moab Daily stretch and from Dewey Bridge to Hittle Bottom. First time on the Colorado whitewater so a few in our party biffed it in New Rapids and White's Rapids. I pumped my boat after every rapid and managed to stay upright, my wife too. Both my wife and myself felt this was a big factor in the success of our float since we were not using spray skirts. I know we weren't in class IV rapids but there was some significant moments. I would not go without this bilge pump ever...and it's reasonably priced. Thank you NRS.

    We ordered a large number of these for an youth expedition program. They worked okay for about season but quickly became jammed with rocks and sand. Grit has seized up the pump shaft and made most of the pumps very difficult to use - not what you want in an emergency situation.

    I still have 12 or so left on my shelves and they are now just about useless for sending on trips. They won't stand up to hard, repeated use.

      Plunger quickly becomes hard to use

      By Chris

      from Long Island, NY

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Floats
      • Highly visible

      Cons

      • Difficult To Use
      • Poor Design

      Best Uses

        Comments about NRS Kayak Bilge Pump:

        I've been using this pump for a bit over a year with lots of opportunity to use it as I practice skills. I have two main issues with it:

        1. The plunger very quickly became hard to use. It would stick in both directions, preventing a smooth and efficient pump action. This not only slows down your pumping, but in rougher water, it affects your balance.

        2. The bottom rim is flush, which means if you have it pressed against the inside of the hull it will create a vacuum against it and block water flow. I've seen other pumps that have cutaways or raised edges that prevent that problem. I sawed out several places on the rim to achieve that with this pump, but that leaves somewhat sharp edges on it which are never a good thing.
