Eliminate the guesswork from your next epoxy project with the precalibrated TotalBoat pump system. Mix one full stroke of Resin with one full stroke of hardener to accurately dispense a 5:1 mix ratio every time.
The pumps are color coded to match the corresponding product for convenience. The white pump works with TotalBoat epoxy resin while the black pump is used for the hardener.
TotalBoat 5:1 Pumps are intended for use with the TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy System. They are compatible with quart, gallon, and 5-gallon size epoxy kits.

(1 ea) TotalBoat Resin Pump, white
(1 ea) TotalBoat Hardener Pump, black
REMEMBER: Pumps are calibrated and measured to automatically dispense the appropriate 5:1 mix ratio with ONE-pump to ONE-pump of resin and hardener, respectively.
Is there any way to get the pump just for the 5:1Part B Fast Hardener?
Sorry, we only have them as a kit of both.

I f up my project by using pumps mixing 5 to 1. I did 5 pumps resin to one pump hardener.(Not enough Hardener) Obviously I f up big time so What do I do to resolve this Problem?
Yeah but what do I do to fix my f up? do I try to pull up cloth and scrape up resin and start over or what?
I have not used it yet. if I understand the system properly, I think one pump of resin along with one pump of hardener gives the proper mix.
The pump kit is a 5:1 kit. When you do one pump of the resin, there is five times the liquid than on pump of the hardener.For every one pump of resin, there is a matching one pump of hardener. If you need five pumps of resin, you must do five pumps of hardener.
Ditto with James K. Terry H. correct. Be mindful of the temperatures that each hardener will or will not cure in ( Fast, Slow, and Clear.) Otherwise your batch and F-glass will cure to fast or too slow. Neither will get your project the proper bonding nor strength.
I bought a couple of these pumps because I thought my original pump had gone bad. When the new pumps had the same problem I called a tech at JD (Rick, I think). Rick was extremely helpful and suggesting I put the epoxy container in warm water for awhile. Sure enough, after about 1/2 hour, the stuck pump freed up and off I went. The problem, it turned out, was that the epoxy had thickened slightly in the container and was thick enough that the spring in the pump could not reset the plunger.THANK YOU JD!!!
I have purchased this product on three ocassions. The 5:1.
The pumps fulfill their primary function in dispensing resin and hardener. I would like to see the following improvements:The resin pump is way too slow in temperatures in the 60 degree range. If the size of the passages could be re-sized larger it would be appreciated. I have Tropical, slow,& fast hardener in "A" and "B" size containers but I cannot purchase pumps separately. Make a pump purchase available/optional with each can of hardener sold.
This is so "right" why would you not use it?
On my first boat I wanted to ensure that everything was as mistake-proof as possible. Using the TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Pump kit I was able to complete many preliminary steps and fiberglass the outside of my Payson/Bolger Cartopper with no problems. I like the fact that you can accurately mix small quantities. Several of the initial steps in the project require amounts as small as "just a couple of ounces" of resin. With the TotalBoat pump set, this was easy to get the mix right for a perfect set. I find it useful to put tick marks on the resin jug so I know how much I have used.The resin pump seems to dispense about 1 oz. per pump. It would be helpful to know if that is "exact" or it is actually 0.87 oz or whatever.Follow the instructions and make sure the pump is "primed" for the complete shot at full stroke. The hardener in particular may drip out of the spout resulting in a bit less than expected hardener.I am quite pleased with the results from using the 5:1 pump set.

Total boat epoxy is great
The material is great. I would like to see the spouts, especially the one on the resin pump, alittle longer. It drips all over the conainer. The hardner is not as bad but it still could be longer to make it easier to hit the pot.
TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Pumps
The pump system allows making any size batch of epoxy resin without having to calculate and carefully measure the volumes of resin and hardener. One can also mix the slow and fast hardeners in various ratios within a batch to achieve different reaction times. The only caveat here is to keep the resin/hardener ratio correct with the same number of pump strokes for each.
