Hey guys my kid the other day grabbed the black hand pump and tried using it as a water gun down at the lake. I now find myself having to relube the inside of the pump o-ring and side walls. I opened my other pump and found that they used a red or pink color lubricant that has the viscosity of Vaseline. Does anyone know what the actual OEM product is and where I can get some? I have done some research and wondered if by chance it is Pro Circuit PC-03. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My corrosion prone non-Hobie hand pumps are thriving on silicon grease, something that unfroze my sliding glass door like no oil could. Wiki sez:

"Silicone grease is commonly used for lubricating and preserving rubber parts, such as O-rings. Additionally, silicone grease does not swell or soften the rubber, which can be a problem with hydrocarbon based greases. It functions well as a corrosion-inhibitor and lubricant for purposes that require a thicker lubricant."
