Pardon me in advance, I'm a new boat
owner and still trying to figure all the systems onboard, so its possible this could be a super easy fix that I'm just not getting.
Anyways, so my problem is that my macerator pump
is not working.. when I bought the boat
, it seemed to work
fine, then after having my boyfriend onboard for the weekend (and flushing
extra thick toilet paper!), alas she fails to pump
I thought first I had blown a fuse, but after replacing it, still no luck. All I can hear is a quick 'click' when I push the macerator switch.
I then tried turning the impeller, but it's definitely not stuck in place. (It's a jabsco
self priming pump with run dry protection, model 18590 series - new in 2005)
I opened up the deck
cap for the tank but couldn't really see anything.. it seems to be ventilating fine as well.
If anyone has any experience whatssoever I'm sure you have a better idea than I do, and would greatly appreciate your opinion! Thanks
