Beckson Thirsty-Mate Pumps

Beckson Portable bilge pumps are made of sturdy ABS plastic with comfort-grip handle providing smooth firm strokes. Often referred to by their brand name, Thirsty Mate, hand bilge pumps are easy to use and reliable in any boating situation. They are often used in dinghy or sailboats, where battery / electric pumps are not an option, or as an emergency bilge pump for heavy rain, damaged battery or back-up.

I have two of these, the 1-1/4 size and the 2" size. The smaller one was purchased around 1967 and I still use it every day to bail the dinghy. You can't beat that! The larger one really moves a lot of water.

The pump arrived on time and in perfect condition. I will use it when I empty the hot tub next month.

BTW, the reason for the tepid rating is I haven't had to use, and thus evaluate, this product. The application that Jamestown uses requires a response, however. The three star rating is, therefore, neither negative nor positive. It is neutral.

    Comments about Beckson Thirsty-Mate Pumps:

    I bet the hose is a really nice feature. I wish mine had arrived with one.
    Luckily it's just tall enough to pump the water over the sheerline without a hose.

    Comments about Beckson Thirsty-Mate Pumps:

    Catalog should be corrected for this part number to show the red straight discharge pipe instead of the gray flexible hose that normally comes with these pumps.

            Comments about Beckson Thirsty-Mate Pumps:

            The "ask someone who bought this" is a terrific idea. I had 2 questions -- specifically how to use it and how easy the pumping is to do. Based on the 6+ answers I got, all really good ("works like it looks it works" and "pumping can get tiring if there's a lot of stuff to be pumped"-- ok, dumb questions), so I bought the pump.

                We use this pump for winterization of our restrooms. Draining a hundred toilets is a snap.
