The owner of this 1997 Chris Craft has a bilge full of waste every spring!! What a treat.
The boat yard, the largest in the north east, replaced the macerator on this vessel 3 years ago. They also repositioned the new macerator and the Y valve and added some new hose.
Question: How many times do you need to replace the sanitation system Y valve.
Answer: Every spring for the last 3 years, because it was full of waste water and froze.
Can you tell why it freezes every winter ?
The alterations to this vessel do not conform to USCG regulation or ABYC recommended procedures.
The risk of sinking has increased for this vessel.
Suggestions: An alternate plumbing scheme is available to eliminate the use of a Y-Valve yet keep the functionality of the overboard and deck fitting pump-out options.
