Air Cond to shower sump? Necessary or not
I am replacing my shower sump. We have a cheesy Atwood multi-port shower drain system and the 2 air conditioners water discharge travel to the sump box and are then pumped over.
When I redo this I am wondering why I need to even bother with having the AC water empty to the shower sump. It seems to add a lot of unecessary complication to the system. I am thinking of just directing the AC discharge straight to the bilge. After all, it's clean fresh water.
Why is that a problem. It will just get pumped out by the bilge pump and we don't use the ACs except when we are at the dock. Obviously soapy shower water with dirt and haisr shouldn't go into the bilge, but why is all of this directing of the AC needed? Cars just dump it on the ground.
Any opinions before I replace my sump box?
