Sundancer Waste Pump-Out Problems

hi,

I have a Sea Ray 240 sundancer 2007 with dockside pump out from the porta potti. However, I can't get the dockside pump to fit in the boat's installation, which should be standard. It seems that the waste pipe in the boat is connected at an angle through the plastic assembly on the aft starbord side, and the dockside pump is a cone-shaped tube made of a non-flexible material (made to be plugged straight in), so whenever I connect and start pumping, I can't pump anything out since it doesn't fit tight enough.

Do I need an adaptor, or what?

Assuming the pumpout station hose is equipped with the standard suction nozzle, should work in any deck fitting regardless of the deck fitting's orientation.

Is this what is on the end on your pumpout station's hose?

Hi,

It looks a bit more simple than that. Just a tip of about 30cm expanding in diameter. It doesnt fit tight into the deckside fitting.

Well, if the pumpout station's nozzle is attached to the hose via a quick disconnect, you can take it off and attach either a nozzle like the one pictured or a connector that screws into your deck fitting.

hi,

went to another marina, and they had a screw-on nozzle that fit perfectly. Problem solved.
