stinky head

Many boats are plumbed so the head sink outlet and head water intake is a shared thru hull. If so, close the thruhull, and all the sink water must pump through the head. It''s fresh water and will eliminate 95% of the odors. Another solution is to use the shower wand to direct fresh water into the head, close the intake valve and flush with fresh water.
Make sure the hoses have no low spots which will hold liquid.

Having gone through the stinky head ordeal (yes they give merit badges for it) as an aside watch for cloth covered hoses after a bit of time they act just like an airwick. Go for the vinyl hose you know the expensive type, as for piping in fresh water I''ve not seen it in print but I would put a check valve in line to keep the nasties from contaminating your potable water. Watch out for the wire in the hoses it is cross-trained as an attack device.

Have you disassembled the hoses that attach to your Y valve (I''m assuming you have one)? When I did I found years of fossilized bacterialogical growth that was as hard as concrete -- at first I thought it was concrete! This could be impeding this flow of water and might partically explain the smell.

IF THE ANSWER IS NOT JUST A HEAD ODOR BUT
COMES FROM THE HOLDING TANK AREA WITH BAD
HOSES OR PERMIATED HOSES THEN GO TO SAILNET
SERCH AND GO TO BILGEBUSTER. MOUNT IN SECTION OF BILGE WITH THE ODOR AND IN APROX. 8 HOURS ALL ODOR GOING INTO LIVING AREA IS GONE. I THINK IT TAKES ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO INSTALL. ELIMINATES ALL ODORS,KILLS THE MOLD AND GRAY WATER IN THE BILGE AND ON WOOD BOATS STOPS WOOD ROT. HOW GOOD IS THAT. HAVE USED ONE MYSELF FOR YEARS. SAW IT WRITTEN UP IN PRACTICAL SAILOR 99

no reason to have a stinky head and your able to do it by going to members serch with Sail Net To eliminate any odor from the bilge just go to Bilge Buster. takes about 8 minutes to install and it will be the last dollar you will ever spend on removing head/gray water/diesel/mold odors. in eight hours no more odor in the living space of your boat and it did a great job on my boat.
if it is just head odor (bathroom) look for
the item Headbuster. Will take care of all theodors you thought you left back in your rest room in school. Phew. No no odor at all. So why use chemicals that will kill your system. safe to use, easy to put in and does all the things you never thought could happen. We did it and no odor has ever come back. Sail net has them why look any further?

I have heard these types of ozone generators work. But what about the effects of a lot of Ozone has on plastics? I have heard that It has been shown that a lot of ozone will deteriote plastics and do things like make the foam cushions turn "crumbly" and other things

the only ozone that will cause that is with
commercial grade ozone. The beauty of these
machines sold by sailnet are they produce the
same amount of ozone found outdoors on an nice day. .03 to .05 parts per mm. That is under half to half of the ozone allowed by the epa and also osha. it will also have no
effect on the chemical made rubber on a boat or car. you will find no bad effect on any
foam rubber, or pvc pipes on the boat.
after 10 years of using them I have never had
even one bad side effect. all positive as do
all my friends who have them also.
the bilge buster is the only machine made that is Coast guard lab approved and all the machines meet all FCC approval it is great stuff and really works.
