Cs36 I NEED HELP !!!!!
I just bought a Cs36 this spring, everything went well until i had a hole in my septic tank.I did remove the tank all the hoses and clean the whole thing at least 5 times. Now the smell seems to be comming under the sink,thats where all the remaining hoses are. Now if i try to clean under the sink with water i am not sure where that water will go since i can see if it will drain in my bilge. If someone owned a Cs before maybe they could tell me.

P.s. the only hoses that remain is the Y valve that discharge into the sea and i did cap the hole where the hose was going to the septic tank. There is no smell comming from my bilge so its realy comming from under the sink in the toilet.

Any help is welcome, thanks.

You'll need to replace the hoses as they have become permiated with sewage. As well as the 3way.

Yes i want to do that but for now i have to find another solution since sailboat
stuff is not available where i live. Is there anyway i can try to clean it ???
like bleach or something like that. Season is almost done here so next year i will change everything even the toilet.

No, once permiated it's done. Chlorine will damage all the seals and kill all bacteria in the tank.

Try flushing the hoses with white vinegar.
