  2. nice video …….but if it's only poop and urine, our ancestors like colomb or magellan do it in the sea !!!! it's not pollution, it's just ………human natural waste from millions years !!!!!! oil or petrol are another thing, for sure in the water !!!! but maybe WE can ask ask to TOTAL, TEXACO or BRTISH PETROLEUM what they do for our planet !!!!

  3. "Hope you enjoyed this video" ????? So anyway, "offshore" in many European counties is 12 miles. Also some modern waste hose is "low odour" and less permeable. Time for an upgrade?

  4. how do you know in the event that you get no flow, if the problem is on board, or with the pump unit?

  5. That's a shitty location to put a pump out outlet on a boat. Pun intended

  7. I was kind of hoping one of you would slip up and say poo. Either way, good video. Nice and informative.

  8. How do you pump out when you need to out at sea (in a legal zone more than 3 miles from shore)…is there a convenient way or is it messy job? Also, are there on-demand service people at marinas that will pump out for a fee? Thanks!

  10. I like to attach the flotation devices to the keys in case somehow they accidentally get dropped overboard.

  11. Normally you should reopen the valve before dipping in the water after completing your pumpout. This reinstates suction and allows water to enter and flush the entire length of the hose. This helps ensure the next user doesn't get hit with any waste that may remain in the hose.
