I have a pair of Channel Lock with serrated jaws, and a pair of Knipex with smooth jaws.

Are you actually using them for pump valves?

If so save yourself the grief and get a pair of these.


Now, not the most cost effective but as I got sent two by mistake from Amazon all's good.

I also have the pump pliers but have never used them on pumps, as I have the above.

I have a couple of those Bahco adjustables with the slim jaws which I use for armour glands.
Not as long as those though.

Another vote for Bahco, I've got quite a few of their tools and they're very well made.
 
With the Bahco ones, you don't need to press the button to make the jaws closer, only wider. This makes them quicker to use. You just slide the handles closer and it ratchets closer.

On my Knipex Pliers Wrench (the smooth jaw ones), the adjustment is too fine, I find them fiddly to use. Not sure if that is the same for the waterpump pliers or not.
