I think this whole thing has been a bit over-analysed, but Mark, like Hopcar said, that would work, but you'd have to close the seacock after each shower use - from your usage frequency, not a huge issue. However, a better one would be a Whale type Gulper pump, which won't jam with hair etc, as it does not have a blade, and leading the waste into the sink outlet (if easy to do) with a T or Y connection, (preferably a Y, so sink water does not just fill the shower sump, as Northern Spy pointed out), to avoid an under waterline thru-hull, and obviate the need to remember to open said seacock for each shower. Matter of priorities I guess, and just how accessible that seacock is.
