is a rare example of a shallow water dive pump made by the Bishop & Babcock Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, a company that was primarily known as a manufacturer of beer dispensing equipment. This example closely follows the industry standard for a shallow water pump in design and dimensions, but has been cleaned up and polished for dramatic effect. This style pump was used primarily with the Miller-Dunn Style 1 and Style 2 “Divinhood“ and Morse 15 dive helmets.
The pump is being sold for display only and should be sent to a dive shop for certification.
