From what you wrote it looks like I'll need to run a hose from the sump to the space under the sink and then run the outlet hose to the sink drain thru hull.
Thanks again for the input.

Ours is similar to Jaronson. Beneath our grate is the hose which runs under the vanity where the pump is located. We actually have a 3 way valve there. one to the [ump. opne to the shower sump and one has a 10 ft coil of hose which can be used as an emergency bige pump. Most of the time the valve is set to pass from the sump to the pump. Leading out of the pump the 1/2 inch hose leads behind the port sette and out a thru hull way above the water line right below the cove stripe.

There is a strainer under the sump at the end of the 1/2 inch hose and also an inline one before the pump. I wouldnt run the hose all the way back to the sink as thats a lot of water in the line and a great distance.

Re: C&C 35 MK III shower installation

Thank you for this information. Saltaire was built without a drain in the shower basin/floor so now I need to run a hose from the shower basin up to where I will put a pump, and probably a 3 way valve as you described. So, like Joel's does you hose exit the foward side of the shower basin and then turn to port and go up under the sink? Is that, like the hose going out from the pump also a 1/2" diameter hose. Do you think it's feasible to snake a hose from the basin to the cabinet under the sink or will I need to cut the floor? Finally, why do you think the distance to the sink is long. The pump to the head sink drain would be very short. What am I missing.

Thanks for your help,
Dave

Re: C&C 35 MK III shower installation

I thought you meant the galley sink..sorry. No the run isnt that long, but why pump shower water to another sink/ basin, when you can pump it directly overboard.

Another few thoughts. If the pump is a good high volume one like ours it might actully fill the basin before it could drain, also our sink drains fairly slowly when we are on a port tack as it must be partially under water, On our trips offshore many times we shower while underway. Lastly I metnion we had a 3 way valve so we could have a thrid way to dewater the boat in an emergency. Dewatering meaning pumping it directly overboard.
