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:
- 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
- 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.
