[Amel Yacht Owners] Pump Out ... SM


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Gary,

Here is what I did:

I purchased a 1 inch 1/4 (from memory - check with the fitting on the pump). A hose of 75 cm or 30 inches long

The pictures will make more sense:

Feeling like a total newbie, we cannot seem to get
suction started to empty either holding tank. The tanks ate
nearly full as we can look in and see slurry but I'm not
sure if there's a drop-in stanchion pipe or some other
item I might be missing. There's just a big air gap to
look at, and while the pumpout hose does apply suction, it
won't draw anything but air. We primed the pumpout hose,
made sure there's a good fit but nothing happens. I have
to be missing something basic but have had a few other
dockmates helping out to no avail. Thoughts?
