Re: Where do you send the grey water from a washing machine?

Right the gray water bilge in the engine room, not under the floor in the galley.  ;)

Hello John,

On the Super Maramu the water of the washing machine goes into the bilge.
By the way the lye will help clean the bilge.

We are rebuilding the whole plumbing system.

1. For the washing machine, where do you send the grey water? In the bilge and then you pump it out? There is an used thruhull above the water line with a sea cock. Any of you sending the grey water above the water line. If you heel on the wrong you run the risk of sending sea water inside the washing machine. Not good. If you close the sea cock you run the risk of a memory lapse and running the washing machine through a closed sea cock. Not good either.
What is your setup?
2. Fresh water pump: is 6GPM, 60 PSI too much pressure?
