Hi- here is a question for all those with more knowledge than I have.
I am nearing the point of purchase
of a 35 Taiwan
. The holding tank
appears to have plumbing
from the head
that through a valve position can be pumped directly through the hull
or into the holding tank
. The tank has a deck
mounted clean out port and the tank itself has a manual pump
(looks like a bilge pump
style handle and assembly) that also appears that through the valve settings can be used to empty the tank overboard
. Does this description sound like anything you have seen? Am I seeing this correctly? Is it a normal set up?
Also as this boat
is a 1981 vintage- does any out there reccomend that its advisable to have the tank pumped out and then open the manual pump
plate and either steam clean or pressure wash the inside of the tank to get back to original status and start fresh with all new hoses from the head
to the valves and the holding tank?
Thanks for any/all adviced Randy
