Usually the dockside pump out connection will
screw into the waste deck plate or has a rubber
sleeve that inserts into the plate and must be held
in position during the pump out operation.
Failure to keep the water tank vent fitting clean
tank during filling. This can cause water tank
Have the pumping station operator activate the pump-
ing equipment. The waste will be drawn from the hold-
ing tank and into the pumping stations disposal tank.
B. Winterizing the Water System
Winter lay-up service procedures should include a thor-
ough draining of the water system. Disconnect all ac-
cessible fittings. Blow out all lines. Be sure the water
tank, waste tank, pumps and lines are completely dry.
Freezing water can cause severe damage to all water
Remove the pump out connection from the deck plate.
Add 1 gallon of clean water to the holding tank through
the waste deck fitting using a dockside water hose.
Repeat steps 1 & 2 above to pump out the water used
in step 3 to flush the holding tank.
Add waste holding tank treatment chemical available
from the dockside pumping station operator to the
head. Flush at least twice.
It may be necessary to disconnect the hose be-
low the faucet to remove excess water in the
lines to prevent freeze damage.
Always winterize the fresh water system prior
Be careful when handling and storing treatment
chemicals. Not only are they toxic, but they will
also stain and damage surrounding surface.
Draining the system as mentioned can be very tedious
and an incomplete job can result in expensive repairs.
The use of nontoxic antifreeze (such as R.V. antifreeze)
designed for fresh water systems considerably reduces
the work necessary and is a more positive means of
winterizing the system. Follow the directions included
with the antifreeze solution.
It will be necessary to remove the top holding tank of the
portable head to fill with water.

Be sure the batteries in the boat are properly charged.
Operating the pressure pump from a battery with a low
ture pump failure.
Turn on the water pump/faucet and drain the water
tank. The water tanks on some models can be
drained by removing the withdrawal hose from the
tank and allowing water to drain into the bilge.
The decomposition of waste produces a color-
less, odorless gas, methane, that is lighter than
vide sufficient ventilation when effecting repairs
to the waste system and allow no odor from the
waste system to go unresolved.
DO NOT run the water pump without water in
the system. Pump damage can result. Be
watchful and turn the pump off as soon as the
tank becomes empty.
A. Clean Vents and Screens
Add 1/2 gallon of R.V. antifreeze to the water tank.
Turn ON the pump until undiluted antifreeze is seen.
Periodically remove the vent caps and check the water
tank vent(s). Clean the thru-hull vent fitting(s) of any dirt,
wax, plastic particles, etc. Always replace the caps after
