Not a Good Pool Toy Inflator (As Advertised)!
on April 22, 2013
I purchased this product solely to use as a pool toy inflator as advertised on the Coleman Web Site which says "Quickly inflate or deflate virtually any airbed or inflatable". I realize this is meant primarily to be used for inflatable beds, but it does come with an adapter (the pointy one with the loop on the end) that is supposed to be used for other inflatables. I have an attachment that attaches to our shop vac that is supposed to be used for inflating pool toys, but it is bulky, and difficult to use. Unfortunately, the adapter on this Coleman Pump isn't any better and does not easily fit into any pool toys that I have, and I have many different sizes and shapes. It barely fit into the largest ones that I had, and when it did, it didn't do a very good job of inflating the pool toy at all. It was slow, weak, and extremely loud. The nozzle and loop is supposed to be used to open the stop valve in the pool toy, but the nozzle was so big, it wouldn't get in there far enough to make an airway. Unfortunately, they don't offer any smaller adapters. Overall, this product might be OK at inflating a bed, but as for other inflatables that they advertise about, this isn't the product to do it. Very Disappointing.
