Time for the next Improvement
On our 4788 Bayliner we have two vacuflush heads that from the factory discharged into a holding tank. The holding tank had a discharge through a macerator, and of course a pumpout
We removed the holding tank and installed a Raritan hold-n-treat system in its place. We used the Purasan based model because of our freshwater heads, but the electr0-scan model does the same thing for salt water systems.
This gives us:
1. a 15 gallon holding tank for the rare time we're in a NDZ
2. a USCG certified treatment system
3. A*USCG compliant lockout panel with keys.
4. Getting rid of the 50 gallon holding tank opened up all kinds of room in our engine spaces.
The cost was about $2500 for all the parts. We had it done as part of a major refit, and I think the labor was in the $2K range as well.
