That is a tall order on the H376 info from the helpers here.all I was asking is if anyone has done it specifically on this make and model of boat
Since you are new to this site, helpers abound here.Please don’t think this rude [nope you have done well]
I think that needs a little clarifying... If it's an uphill run from the toilet to the tank and/or the toilet discharge line to the tank is longer than about 6', it can be very helpful to aim the toilet discharge fitting straight up to run the discharge line up and over a loop...doesn't have to be a vented loop, just a loop that's slightly higher than the top of the tank. Any manual or electric toilet in good working order should be able to lift bowl contents up to 4'. This not only provides needed help from gravity to get the flush all the way to the tank, but you only have to flush long enough move it over the top of the loop, which reduces the amount of flush water needed. At least once a day, flush a quart of clean water --fresh using a jug if possible--to rinse the discharge line.One piece of insight I learned from Peggie, you want the line to rise after the toilet and then descend to the holding tank. The typical toilet pump has the ability to push your effluent up and over the loop. This means gravity is helping you to deposit the effluent into the holding tank and not sitting around in the hose to stink up the boat.
It WAS a mistake and solidifies my opinion that boat builders are the WORST sanitation system plumbers (I refuse to believe there's any design to their systems) on the planet! It may be easier than you think to re-route it to make sense.So, there was also sag in the hose because it was run underneath the aft berth. I believe that was a mistake. It would have been better to run the waste hose along a side of the boat on a continuous slope to the holding tank.
Totally agreed thereWhile you may have eliminated most of the smell, your cushions (fabric & foam) are probably permeated. You may not get complete riddance of the smell until you change those items out.
It's actually not that difficult to eliminate residual odors in soft goods (rugs, carpet and cushions). There's product that'll do it : PureAyre PureAyre It's the only product I've ever found that'll eliminate ANY odor--even smoke or diesel-- when used as directed. Cushions: remove the covers and send 'em to the cleaners. Then spray enough of it to penetrate cushions to the middle from both sides..not enough to make 'em drippy, just enough to get into the cushion.... then let them dry. If the weather is good, put 'em out on deck in the sunshine all day. Rugs: spray enough PureAyre onto them to penetrate all the way to the backing...then just let them dry--also out in the sun if possible.While you may have eliminated most of the smell, your cushions (fabric & foam) are probably permeated.
