Did you try disconnecting the hose from the pump and using dock water to blow out the pipe?
I would also do the same at the forward locker.
If not, if you have a scuba tank, you can purchase a nozzle that hooks up to the hose for a BC. That will give you 100 psi+ to clear the hose. It is also very useful to blow things off the engine etc.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Clogged anchor wash pipe
Today's maintenance monday task was troubleshooting the anchor wash.
It turns out the pipe is clogged. Using the dock mains pressure lets water through but the pump is not beefy enough to do anything useful. Neither is mouth-blowing into the pipe.
Any advice on unclogging it? Mechanical or chemical (Barnacle Buster any good?)..
Thanks in advance
