After I found the ice box foot pump had failed and looked like it was toasted (year one of our ownership and I was naive about rebuilds and the fact that there was a good reason for it...) I removed it and foolishly tossed it out. From posts here I realize that draining the box into the bilge is likely also causing there to be a constant vacuum of cold air sucking into the bilge, as well as unnecessary melt water into the bilge. Oops.
I'm looking to order a new one (Whale Gusher Galley MK III) but apparently it is either left hand or right hand for the pedal location, but the photos online show both versions with alternately 'right hand lever' and 'left hand lever' regardless of the version in the photo (not at all clear what constitutes which version). I have found no reference to which side the standard pump was. Any idea? Many thanks in advance.
