Ah... Try turning off the pump and getting folks to rely upon a hand/foot pump at the galley sink when the yacht's away from the dock except when showering (navy showers) or rinsing dishes after washing. One (or one's child) takes a glass of water to the head to brush one's teeth, for example. (We did this with our daughter when she was small and, after we returned from an extended trip, the first morning home she walked into the kitchen, got a glass from the cupboard, filled it with water at the kitchen sink and headed for her bathroom. "Where ya going with that?" I asked. "To brush my teeth Daddy" she replied. I just smiled, "Good for You honeybee!") Those were the daze...
