Re: GROCO K-type marine head question

I have the rebuild kit on hand... oh boy. I'm probably going to follow SanderO's example and just remove the whole thing, take it completely apart, clean it, use the rebuild kit parts up, put it back together, paint it, and re-install it. Sounds like a good late autumn project.

Meanwhile, I checked it today and pumped the bowl dry, but it didn't fill back up. I opened the intake valves to pump water through but nothing came out... pretty sure the intake is fouled with marine growth, judging by how much green slimy stuff was visible just below the waterline. Great...

Even more problematic, I noticed that the electric bilge pump was not set to "auto" (it was "off") - when I switched it to "auto", I heard this weird electronic-sounding noise coming from the pump (the bilge was dry) so I turned it back to "off" because I didn't want to leave the boat with it making that noise. If it isn't one thing, it's another...
