Holding tank

Hi all,
For about 10 years, Croix du Sud is equipped with an ELECTROSCAN waste treatment station. Although noisy, it works correctly provided the engines are running (it's an Amperes chasm). Anyway, it's no longer regarded as environment friendly.
Therefore, I consider replacing it by a plain holding tank but I wonder where to install it. See no room for.
Some GB 36 owners might have an experience and I'd be much grateful for any practical information in this matter.
Have a nice day
Jean

I have mine where others have a generator.
Nearest the head most often used is best. You have not said if it is single or twin engines. where is the electrosan now as a starting location

Don’t know about where to locate the tank but can recommend Ronko holding tanks highly. They make a quality tank and have hundreds of stock tanks. They will install the fittings where you need them. No affiliation. Also try to put in 2 large vents, one to each side of the boat it will help get oxygen into the tank and therefore keep smells to a minimum.

Apologies Steve, the message was unwillingly sent.
Well, Croix du Sud is a twin engined 36 footer and the generator is installed immediately abaft the engines, so the closest volume left is between the gas tanks but too remote, I think.
Any suggestion still welcome.
Have a nice day
Jean

Ronco Plastics would be an excellent source if he were in the US, Dave...but he's in France....shipping from California would be a deal breaker.


TekTanks in the UK is his best source for European boat owners. TekTanks tank catalog They make top quality tanks, also install fittings in the sizes and locations specified by the customer and have almost as many shapes and sizes as Ronco plus, they're great to work with.

The "replacement tanks for sail and motor boat" designations are just a reference for those needing an identical replacement...you may find that one of them is the size and shape that you need.

Hi Peggie,
I've been short in space in my reply, sorry.
Just have a look to Tek Tanks internet site. Their choice is impressive, indeed. Thanks for the link
Have a nice day

Hi our holding tank (40gal) on our 36' Grand Banks Classic is installed on a platform, level with the deck grating on the stbd side adjacent to our single engine, just on the other side of the deck grating. Fits perfect!

Good luck

I Had to replace a tank a number of years ago and had one custom poly welded from duraweld. Awesome guy to work with and made me one heck of a tank. Here a a thread I did 12 years ago about it on the prairie group
