I am new to cruising and just bought my first boat so I'll probably be on here a lot so thanks for your help!
My boat has a y-valve that can route
waste from the head
to either a holding tank
or directly overboard
. I would like to add an ElectraScan and I'm not sure of the best way to do it. I'm thinking of inserting it after the y-valve on the line that currently pumps directly overboard
. Therefore in my new configuration, the y-valve will either direct waste into the holding tank
(for future pumpout) or into the electrascan and then overboard.
My biggest concern is what would happen on a long crossing if the electrascan fails and I can't pump overboard? I guess a plumbing
Anyone see any problems with this? Also, what is a safe head
(bowl) cleaner for use with the electrascan and safe for the environment
