valterra rocket pump is what you are looking for. get from an RV store and it is only 20% of the cost of getting it from a marine supplier.

thanks - but I was thinking of something much more.... salty? Maybe "antique" would be a better description of what I'm looking for.

I get wanting it to look vintage/salty. But actually using it? How do you even wash your hands with it? Rinse them one at a time? Water waster.

As long as style trumps function, fine.

Although mine wasn't that fancy I got rid of it for just that reason. Changed to a foot pump and I love it! (saves water & electric) & you can wash both hands...Dale

You run water into a small basin, wet your hands, apply soap and rub well. then rinse both hands in the basin. Empty, add a bit more clean rinse water and rinse again. Not a water waster -- washing hands under running water IS.

Well now you all bring up some good points - of course I was reflecting on form over function- hadn't thought about having to wash one hand at a time-

but since I single hand anyway -

I'll have to give it some more thought. Those old chunky brass fixtures just look so lovely.

I'm in the process of buying an H-28 -

The foot pump holds prime so it a lot less pumping!-Dale
