Exclamation Need a hand pump

Hi everyone,

I am completely new to this forum and I am not a "real" sailer yet. I am definitly interested in going beyond my general sailing licence.

Well anyway, at the moment, I am going on a survival trip and I am not sure if I will have fresh water at all times. So I am looking for a hand pump that can filter out the salt from the sea water. If anyone knows such a pump or could help me find one I would greatly appreachiate it.

Thanks a lot

You also might want to look at the Pur Survivor 35, which has a higher capacity rating than the Survivor 06 model.

Don't forget that maintenance and parts are a huge issue with these generally. If you are planning on needing the watermaker for survival, I would definitely pack enough spares to rebuild it completely, and carry a spare membrane or two. The membranes go bad if used in certain conditions, like polluted or sediment filled waters, or if unused for a long time with out proper storage (pickling).

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
