Sailingdog says, ...by soaking a cotton towel in hot water and wrapping it around the hose, and then when the rag has cooled, taking it off and sniffing it. If it smells, then the hoses need replacement.
Now that is a really neat trick. I’ll have to remember that one.
Surfesq says, When you pump out...fill the tank back up with fresh water and then pump it out again. Then put one cup of clorox brand bleach into the holding tank.
Be careful of bleach, many heads say not to use it because it does like to eat through things. That’s how we broke the last head.
Alanl says, Vetus make an air-ionizing device that is fitted into the holding tank vent line. but it is costly and it would be good to know if anyone else has had success with this or similar unit.
Skip and I are also interested to know if anyone is using this product. We have been using vinegar, but still, on occasion get some smell in the cockpit when under sail.
