Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hair in macerate pump
Hi Kent and Iris,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am afraid that the dreaded job of regularly de-hairing the macerator pump is on my list of preventative to do’s. It is not too bad if one pumps through plenty of clean water before! Caustic soda will dissolve hair and many other things but it is dangerous stuff. I use it in the main bilge about once a month as it is a great de-greaser, but for the head macerators I find it pretty quick and easy to take them off manually, clean and put them back with a small amount of silicon grease on the rubber seal. It really is a five to ten minute job.
