Are you sure the foot pump is for the water tank? Many boats have a foot pump that brings in sea water for a salt water wash that you follow with a fresh water rinse. Seawater can really get funky pretty fast sitting in the hose. You might have a sea water foot pump. My boat has both fresh & seawater foot pumps. The fresh water foot pump is fine but the seawater foot pump does stink & we don't use it.
