Spring Checklist: Water & Head Systems

We live in such a beautiful location with islands galore to explore right at our doorstep.  So why take the chance of postponing your boating season by not performing a Spring Checklist?  Below are a few helpful tips:

Water System
  • Flush Tank
  • Check water system and pump for leaks and proper operation
  • Check hot water tank is working on both AC and engines
  • Check for tank cap keys on board
  • Check and clean shower sump pump screens
Head System
  • Check for smooth operation – lubricate and clean as necessary
  • If equipped with treatment system, have chemicals on hand
  • Y-valve operation checked, valve labeled & secured

Please consult your boat’s operating manual before conducting any suggested actions.
