I have four throughulls in my engine
room and I just repurposed one for my watermaker
. The others are engine
, and aft head
. I need to add the salt water
pickup for my sink/anchor washdown to one of these throughulls. Rather than adding another hole in my boat by installing another throughull, I would like some alternative ideas on how to do it.
I can add a T, or a Y to the watermaker
line - that's the easiest but what stops pulling water
from the inboard area rather than the seacock? And is there a problem with cross contamination?
I have heard about using less throughulls and drawing off an inboard reservoir?
How does this prevent the problems discussed above?
I can use one way valves but do they add restrictions to the flow?
Anyone have any experience with doing this project
