Helpful Tips

The following tips will help ensure a successful pumpout:

  1. Let us know if there is anything unusual about your holding tank – That can include:
    1. Cap labeled improperly
    2. Located under a hatch
    3. Etc
  2. We want to make sure we can empty your tank completely, so please ensure that your:
    1. Valves are correctly positioned
    2. Vents are clear
  3. Please ensure that your holding tank cap can be easily opened – We are unable to service tanks with seized caps. If you do not open your cap regularly, we recommend taking the time to make sure that it turns easily and if not to lubricate the threads as necessary
  4. We will not enter a boat without the owner’s permission, so please be present for the service if your holding tank is not accessible from the outside of your boat
  5. Clogged vents or overcapacity holding tanks can cause them to become pressurized – If you believe this to be the case, please let contact us so we can take the necessary safety precautions
  6. If you believe you may have a clogged vent, please contact us for assistance. Symptoms of a clogged vent can include:
    1. Lingering bad odor
    2. Leakage around tank fittings
    3. Hissing noises
    4. Bulging tanks walls
    5. Liquid flowing back into the bowl
    6. Difficulty emptying the head
  7. Most problems with a pump-out can be handled with taking necessary precautions above and a regular service schedule. If you have any concerns or questions about your service, please contact us for further assistance.
