About NRS: Northwest River Supplies
In 1972, with only $2,000 in his personal savings, Bill Parks started Northwest River Supplies with one mission: to help others raft. 42 years later, Bill sold NRS to its employees. Today, the 100% employee-owned business strives to continue Bill’s legacy helping people pursue passions on the water. At our Moscow, Idaho headquarters you’ll find passionate water-lovers just like you, from rafters to whitewater kayakers, sea kayakers to stand up paddlers, kayak anglers to fly fishermen. Our lives, and livelihoods, are drawn to water.
It’s come to our attention that possibly one or more production runs of the bilge pump may have been assembled without properly setting the adhesive for the gasket head into the piston. For the pumps with this defect, the pump quickly and easily fails, rendering the pump useless. Our research shows these pumps are limited to lot# 201804 (this number is located under the yellow foam float on the pump body).
To see if you have a defective pump, aggressively work the piston a dozen or so times. If the pump holds intact, you do not have a faulty pump. If your pump gasket releases, you’ll immediately notice it. The piston will slide free and the pump will not function as designed. Please contact NRS and we will replace the pump at once.
