Two days before we left the Bahamas, my Aquabot for rinsing dishes broke.
We were badly waked by a cigarette boat leaving our anchorage and while I managed to grab many loose items, I couldn’t reach the Aquabot and it crashed to the floor.
The knob for pumping it up had broken off . . . or rather, the piston shaft had broken off just below the knob.
I love my Aquabot and put a new top on the list of things to buy as soon as we returned to the US. For those who aren’t familiar with the Aquabot, it’s a small tank sprayer the size of a water bottle. Perfect for rinsing dishes, small clean ups on deck and 101 other things on board a boat. Read more about them here.
Amazon only sells the top and bottle as a package and since my bottle was fine, so I turned to Lunatec Gear, the company that makes the Aquabot. I knew they sold just tops.
Guess what? I didn’t have to buy a whole new top! They sell parts. And the part I needed only cost 75 cents (plus $2.99 for shipping).
So if something on your Aquabot breaks (yes, things do break when you have an active lifestyle), you don’t have to buy a whole new one. It comes apart quite easily for repair or cleaning and it’s intuitive how to put things back together.

I really like companies that design products so that they can be repaired and then make the parts readily available. Lunatec Gear rocks!
