Floor pump - air leaking
#1
I have a floor pump I have had for years and it is making a hissing noise down at the base of the pump and the air is leaking out. The pump will not get the psi up past 90. Does anyone have any suggestions so I can fix it and not buy a new one?
Thank you

not much info to go on, brand and pics would help. I will say on the cheap, places like Walmart sell floor pumps with gauges for around $20. they work well for the money

What brand and type is it.Most popular brands have overhaul kits, cups and seals. If not replace it with one that is servicable. I have Silca and have replaced the hose, hose end and piston cup a few times.

Please respond with any new ideas !

Thanks,
