Inflatable awnings

Just taken the plunge and bought an inflatable porch awning. Only a small one (26O), but was wondering if the supplied pump will suffice or should I be considering an air pump? Updated- Waiting for a Scotland v England 6 Nations home win. 24th Feb 2018

slightly different

my brother found it easy manually pumping, but swapped to a electric pump, as whilst its doing the work, he could be on with something else, and pop and check pressure, but his is a large air tent

Suppose its dependant on how long manually pumping will take with it been small No Longer the Site Moderator - Martins the Man to Speak too now

I don’t have one but seen folk putting them up and they really don’t seem to take long to inflate manually You’d need a high volume / displacement electric pump. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

I would just suggest if you use a tyre compressor use one were you set the pressure as if I'm not mistaken they only need to be inflated to a low pressure.

I have a Kampa 390 air, on a cool day it’s a doddle to pump but on a hot day I’m sweating like a sweaty thing. I bought a Kampa Gael electric pump . Like npinks says you can be doing something else while it pumps up. I don’t know about other air awnings but Kampa need a 2 stage pump .. the same type that’s used to pump up rib boats. Do it now ! Your a long time dead !!
