  1. Hello all, Just sorting out a narrowboat prior to use. Part of that includes re-modelling a bed which. houses the pump out tank. It is a 110 litre tank. This seems a bit small to me and there is plenty of space, not far off the centre line, to increase the size. just wondering how long other people's tanks fill with normal use. We are a family of four and will be using it for long weekends, possibly up to a week at a time. I know it's a 'how long is a piece of string' question but comments appreciated. Thanks, Andy
  2. Hi! I have a question which is aimed at permanent liveaboards. I've just moved onto a boat, and worried at how expensive pumping out could become. How often do you have to pump out?
  3. After 15 years the job I have dreaded is finally upon me... My pump out toilet although reliable and whiff free has suffered a blockage, it was expected, symptoms have appeared over the last year and so it was only a matter of time before it became terminal and I needed to replace the flexible hose. I would like to try rigid pipe but the way the hose meanders makes that impossible in certain sections so my first question is... Would it be a good idea to just replace like for like 25mmID 33mmOD Butyl hose in one length - approx 8M - or attempt to do rigid in two sections and join to 3 flexible sections? I am worried that the joints would prove troublesome. I would love to use a larger bore hose or pipe but I suspect I am limited to what the original fitter did, again is there any advantage in joining fatter and thinner sections or is that asking for trouble? My head says to stick with the 25mmID Butyl in one length and keep things simple. I intend to take the pipe route the original fitter did which is a gentle run from the bathroom to the holding tanks, my only concern at this early stage is where it goes through bulkheads but no doubt that will become clear as I start ripping out. My plan is to temporarily move my toilet to the back cabin where the holding tanks are while I do this job so I still have a bathroom and my summer cruising goes on... Any tips from those who have already suffered? And no prizes for the first to mention cassettes or other means of disposal, pump out is what I have and will stick with. Thanks in advance, popcorn at the ready.
  4. Hi, I'm looking at a boat to buy which I love, but the toilet is a cassette toilet. Does anyone know how easy/expensive it is to get the whole system installed professionally?
  5. Without wanting to engage in the pump out v cassette debate , I have a question regarding pump out holding tank and vents?. When our holding tank is approx half full and we move across the boat we can hear what appears to be air bubbling up from within the tank. This does not happen when the tank has been emptied nor when three quarters full. This make us think that there is a tank vent somewhere that may be blocked ? Would / could this be one of the holes in the side of the hull near the basin outlet (basin is located above tank) Are holding tanks normally vent to outside ? should I try and probe these holes and unblock it, if one is a vent with a stiff length of wire or a blast of water from the flushing water supply ? Any practical advise welcome, many thanks
  6. Hello, Looking for some advice regarding our waste tank situation. The boat has a pump out toilet with large 1000l waste tank. It is quite smelly inside the boat and we’re trying to narrow down why this is. The tank is identical to the potable water tank on board. Could this be the issue? Not the correct tank? Link to the tank below: https://www.directwatertanks.co.uk/1000-litre-new-schutz-ibc-steel-pallet-un-approved?language=en&currency=GBP&gclid=CjwKCAjwoMPcBRAWEiwAiAqZh94zhssTN0p7KAMB2Jkx4PVkj8vG62Nk0lcVzs92kPXjVSiFedCZZRoC3ysQAvD_BwE If not we’ll have to investigate other possibilities. I’m thinking pipework, seals, tank lid, tank treatment- we use Elsan blue as this had been used previously so more organic options weren’t available to us. Anyone got any ideas of most likely scenario? Many thanks, Jo
  7. I’m a new boater and tried doing my own pump out for the first time at Alperton, West London last Saturday (I’ve previously had someone do it for me once at Willowtree Marina). I'm confident the tank was full but couldn’t get the nozzle to achieve good suction. Do people generally expect to carry a pump out adapter? I've seen some online this afternoon and wonder if this is standard kit that most pump out owners carry? I can order one but it won't be here for a few days and I'd like to have another go at pumping out over the weekend. Currently got a porta potti on the go. Any advice welcome! Thanks.
  8. Hi, does anyone have any numbers for the many pump out boats that cruise the Grand Union near leighton Buzzard.
  9. Howdy, One of my first posts was asking about a pump out toilet for a boat I was about to buy. I took the great advice and tried the cassette for some months and it's just not for me. I've read up a lot on the pros and cons and what I want is a pump out with separate tank, not the dump through style. Does anyone know of any kits that are a reasonable price? I have a professional to fit this and have plenty of space under my bed to fit the tank. I would prefer to use one without a macerator due to obvious problems, I have seen this: http://www.leesan.com/index.asp?m=3&cat1=2&cat2=41&p=820&t=75+Gallon+Holding+Tank%2C+SaniMarin+C48+12v+DC%2C+Stainless+Fittingsbut don't know if it's a macerator type. One other option is to get all the parts separately, does anyone know what parts I would need?
  10. Hi, can anyone tell me where you can get a pump out on the Llangollen, on my old copy of Pearsons, it only gives Grindly brook, which needs a card which I don't have and is on wrong side for ease, but will use if needed. Any info would be helpful, as I haven't planned ahead and am already two hours on the Llangollen , good place for diesel as well would be good as well. Thanks.
  11. Hi all! When I got my boat it had a rusty decommissioned pump out tank. This summer I replaced it with a new plastic one. The tank is under the bed and had a load of polystyrene and other materials above it. Do you know whether it might have been put there for storage as they had leftover polystyrene, or was it to insulate the tank? If it's the latter do I still need it there with a plastic tank? The reason I ask is because it would free up about 5'x 2'x 6" of storage which would be perfect for storing instrument cases. Any thoughts very welcome as I'm currently rebuilding the bed (complete with hydrolic hinges to access storage) and if I can do away with the polystyrene and box the poo tank in, it would be much easier at this stage! Many thanks!
  12. Just wondering if anyone uses a Popaloo on their boat. We have a pump out toilet but carry an Elsan as back up, used it twice, well 3 days in 12 years, but of course it takes up quite a bit of space to store. http://www.popaloo.co.uk/
  13. We have inherited a Sealock RM68 pump out loo (when buying our new/used widebeam) and so far we are not impressed. We also inherited a full tank of poo which was a little unfortunate, but there are occasions when you have to take the good with the bad. The current problem (apart from the inconvenience of pumping out, cost involved and the occasional whiff ) is I believe that the seals have started to detoriate and there is a small leak at the base, also some waste seeps back into the bowl (digusting I know) . I am quite prepared to get a new seal kit for the short term (in the long term we will be returning to a cassette toilet). My question to anyone who has experience of this model is - Are the kits easy to fit and will it bring the promised benefit? Sensible and useful answers only please as we have already been the brunt of about as many poo and loo jokes as any boat owner can manage. Many thanks 'H'
