Yeah, I know... another head odor
Following Peggie Hall's advice, I did the troubleshooting and believe I have the source. For reference, this is all new stuff - new head
, new holding tank
, new hoses, new valves, everything. It's also a sea water
Due to the layout, we have a little longer run from the intake thru-hull to the head. From the raw water
strainer to the head allows some sea water
to collect in the hose (probably just a cup or two). I don't really have any way to clear it out other than disconnect the raw water
intake and drop it in a bucket of fresh water and pump it out clear. This is very difficult to do because of the location and it would have to be done every weekend when we leave the boat.
Is there anything I can do like dropping something in the strainer that provides a was to control this? I was thinking something similar to a bromine tablet used in spas and hot tubs (but not a bromine tablet, that is probably trouble). I just want to "pre-treat" the raw water so when it collects in the intake pipe it won't generate smells.
I've looked around and can't see anything that might fit this need. Anybody got a idea?
I was thinking about the Odorlos stuff that's in the dry form. I can take the strainer apart and drop a little in there then do a quick flush to get it into the pipe. Opening the strainer is a little easier.
