I have a Stand-Up-Paddle-Board, and I like to do some tours. I would need to take the pump with me. It's a typical pump for a SUP (double-action-pump with a pressure gage).
I wonder if it does matter, if the pump gets wet. Often water floats over the package area in the front when traveling on rivers, and I could even overturn and get the pump underwater. I was thinking about getting a huge Drybag to keep the pump dry. But I'm not sure if this is necessary? I guess most parts of the pump are made of plastic, and any water inside could possibly be emptied by pumping or turning the pump with no hose attached.
Would it be a problem, if it gets underwater?
