Any guesses as to where the shower water pump is?

I have a older Regal Leisure Cat. My boat sank at the dock several years ago. We got everything fixed except for the freshwater pump to the forward sink and the aft shower hose. Any ideas as to where that might be located? The tank fill is forward, near the sink. But I don't see any access to a pump. I've also posted on the Regal forum, but this boat wasn't made for long, and there's little information available.

Thanks for any advice.

I don't have any relevant knowledge of your boat so take this reply with a grain or two of salt. Our catamaran has only one fresh water pump located under the galley counter. Pressure water runs from there forward in the stbd hull to the master head, across the boat to the port head then aft to the shower on the swim ladder, and lastly, across the stern to the water maker flush module.

You should be able to trace the supply hose to the sink back to its pump or to the main supply line, whichever is the case. You may need to remove some panels or floor boards to access it.

Yikes! Might need to create an access panel under the sink. But first I'll try tracing the shower line at the stern.

Thanks!

Re: Any guesses as to where the shower water pump is?

I can't picture how big that boat is, but I'd suspect there's only one fresh water pump... so if you have pressure at one tap (galley sink?) and not another (forward sink, aft shower) I'd probably look for disconnected lines first.

Another test might be with the shore water hookup and with the onboard freshwater pump turned off; does water flow to the forward sink and aft shower? If not, another reason to suspect disconnected lines.

Accumulation of fresh water in a bilge -- pump to disconnected line -- might be another symptom.

I agree, probably one pump. A disconnected line would have the pump running full time and would quickly empty the tank or flood the boat.

I think it's more likely that the line(s) is valved off or kinked, preventing water from flowing.
