Is a below water source? I assume no. Is the top of the holding tank greater than the bottom of the sink?

It’s close with gravity feeding the lines. My best guess is a jabsco water puppy will be needed for cold and hot is coming from water heater.

I am not a fan of PVC in a boat but that's just me. I don't see the need for a valve there. I would attach a wooden bung to that area so you can plug it if it breaks.

Found a deal on 1-1/2 sani hose. New pieces to y valve. Gonna take a ride and find a used jabsco with a locking side. Maybe a nice macerator pump

Hey Kevin. Sounds like you are busy as well. Just getting any exterior stuff finished and starting the remainder of the interior over the winter. Galley sink, wiring, stove and lighting. Should be ready for power this summer

Under the shower looked dry, so I left the drain alone and replaced the hose. Snuck in a sea water loop for good measure. Vent it out best I can. Sump fit nice and cleared the way for new tubes at 1-1/2 and 3/4”. I kinda cheated and used pvc connectors but so be it. A little gorilla glue construction adhesive and all should be good to go. Have to glass it of course.

Looks good please post more about the sump as you go. What is the vented loop connected to?

Sea water intake thru hull. I will be doing a coat of glass on the sump and do the attachments last when securing into place.

Can you help me understand why a vented loop is needed? I assume it is the raw water to feed your head?

I’m gonna run it to a vent. If I had another source of ventilation I would use it instead.

Why do you need it? Is the head below the water line?
The reason is two fold. Yes the base of the head and intake is slightly below the water line. When the original owner did the decking it was not though out well.
The second reason, every saltwater feed toilet always stank bad. When I fishing on a friends boat with a saltwater head I noticed no odor. I asked him about it and he showed me two things, the vented loop and some house hold bleach. But he warned me to dilute the bleach and use it in a spray bottle inside the head. The vent tied into the other sani filter on the discharge line.

Interesting. I've never had a vented loop on any of my boats. I always thought that was a sailboat thing where the heads were deeper in the hull, and boat always heeling over.

My heads will equalize with the water line if I am traveling great distances but the water can't go any further, so it will never flood the boat by siphon. The holding tank discharge whether above or below the water line has never been an issue for me.

My holding tanks are vented to the exterior of the boat. No vent inside.

Thanks for explaining the use. I am still not sure I get it. Also, you should consider using hose that is rated for below the water line. Off my soap box now

Starting to figure the poopy stuff. Y valve with new tube and fittings. Gotta snag a macerator pump.
