Aussie ingenuity. If it goes to script, he will ask for funding from our retarded government, get no support and eventually sell the idea to an international company who will develop, manufacturer and sell the pumps back to us for a tidy profit. But at least it may keep some retarded retailers working in our every increasing shopping malls.

That's what you get when lawyers and real estate agents become our politicians.

Rant over.

Twice the volume but presumably twice the resistance - how do you get kite up to final pressure without killing your back? or can you dump flow from one pump?

I would not make the handles a permanent mate, but a releasable link of some type.
this way you could do the easy pumping w both handles, and the final high pressure strokes
with one.

you would probably want to extend the "Y" in the hoses a little to allow you to pump one handle only.

Gonna build one and see what a good handle link might look like.
