Re: Foreign country Pump out systems

"Does anyone know if pump out stations in countries other than US and Canada are of the vacuum variety..."
Only if you figure the lack of any pumpout is considered a "vacuum" :>)

Re: Foreign country Pump out systems

Hi Victor, [Reply delayed as we just returned to the land of the internets...]

I apologize for wasting your time because of my misunderstanding...

It sounds like we have similar systems- at least in concept. I agree- reducing the number of Y valves is very worthwhile. It must be nice to have no reason for reducing the number of through hulls...

You realize if you remove the manual pumps on your Lavacs the electric ones will go on strike...

Cheers!

Bill

Re: Foreign country Pump out systems

Hi Bill, Are you really on Wrangel Island in the Bering Sea? Or Wrangell one of our favorites in AK?
In any case thanks for your reply. And yes, Y valves are problematic. I have found some for Pools and Spas which look to be quite heavy duty but they are big and require modifications to the plumbing in general to make them work.
I am tempted at times to rip all the waste water plumbing out and start over with rigid ABS pipe but then the call of the wild gets me and we move on to more pleasant subjects.

Cheers and enjoy wherever you are.

Victor

Hi Victor, [1st internet in days...]

Our home port is Wrangell Is. [2-l's] in southeast Alaska... We are currently gunkholing all through SE AK for the next year or so before heading to new destinations... or not...

It sounds like you have a good grip on projects none of us prefer to work on...

Cheers!

Bill

We like our ElectroScan.
