Recently the sea water
around the boat was getting smelly. So since the head
is Jabsco electric
unit with sea water
intake, the foul smell sits in the bowl.
The Admiral is unhappy . So being the boat boy
, I had to do something. I added a 3 way ss ball valve. One common outlet to the electric pump
. One to the sea water. One to the fresh water low pressure side.
I was warn by a good friend that I have to be very careful when doing this switch over as he made a mistake of not completely turning the 3 way valve ended in having some sea water/pee/poo backing up into the fresh water tank
. He said some yachtie completely avoid this risk of ruining the fw tank by having a separate water tank just for the head
fresh water supply.
How did you do your fresh water supply to the head and is there a better set up?
Thank you for your replies.
