Ok, I have been putting this off as long as I could but the inevitable is drawing close. When I bought this boat, the waste holding tank
was pretty full. I figured to wait until I put it in the water
to empty the holding tank
but the problem that I need to deal with is the Jabsco
pump. The pump is froze. The motor
appears good as when I put power to it to test it, it tried to turn but the pump itself will not turn. I have taken the end plate off of the motor
and turned the shaft manually but still, it will not turn when when I reassembled it. It was pretty stiff when I turned it manually.
What is the best solution to remove the pump to work on it or replace it?
There is no valve between the tank and pump. For obvious reasons, I really don't want to just open it and have it drain into the bilge
Would the best option be to wait until I get it into the water
and empty the tank?
For what it is worth, it is a flexible tank (which I understand may not be the best choice for a waste tank).
