B. Pump Out Option
When equipped with the pump out option, the waste can
be removed from the tank at a pumping station. A deck
plate fitting labeled WASTE, is provided for this purpose.
The pump out option is available on all Candia FS mod-
The decomposition of waste produces a color-
less, odorless gas, methane, that is lighter than
air, combustible, and extremely lethal. Always
provide sufficient ventilation when effecting re-
pairs to the waste system and allow no odor
from the waste system to go unresolved.
To pump out the holding tank:
A. Clean Vents and Screens

tank vent(s). Clean the thru-hull vent fitting(s) of any
dirt, wax, plastic particles, etc. Always replace the caps
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.

Freezing water can cause severe damage to all water
Repeat steps 1 & 2 above to pump out the water
used in step 3 to flush the holding tank.
It may be necessary to disconnect the hose be-

lines to prevent freeze damage.
Add waste holding tank treatment chemical available
from the dockside pumping station operator to the
head. Flush at least twice.
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
charge will result in pump cycling. This could lead to
premature pump failure.
