Technically thats one pump, because you don't inflate the cells individually :thumb:

I think you should split that up. I don't care for a One pump system but I would like a 2 pump system.

I agree. I wouldn't go for a one-pump but would consider a two-pump.

I think a lot of 'OG' kiters are concerned about one/two pump systems because in the early days, there were many bladder issues. Mfgs have been working on strengthening the material and seal/nipple systems, especially those that have integrated the one/two pumps into their designs.

When was the last time you busted a bladder or had defective one?

Non-1-pump.....

I like the individual bladders for individual bladder control. Less complicated and less risk of all bladders leaking at once..... making a real mess of the swimming pool.....
