I suspect this is the position that your valve is currently in. Since you seem to have a new light indicating an alarm of some sort. Have you been using the head.



To empty the holding tank probably will require that you do the following. First swap the "Y" valve to the "SEA" position. Second check your through hull valve and open it if it is not open. Third turn on your pump. But, to be sure you will have to trace your system out and think about it.



You may have multiple holding tanks and multiple "Y" valves and multiple pumps. Short of finding the owners manual what you really need to do is trace the plumbing out and determine where it all goes.



Your panel has two "Tank" lights. Could be two tanks or possible a high alarm and a hi hi alarm. I would imagine at minimum you have a "Y" valve for the discharge of each toilet and a "Y" valve for the discharge of your holding tank on the the thru hull tank and one to a deck pump out.



Bottom line you need to do you due diligence and trace and verify what you have as a previous owner could have made a repair that was not to original design. Then make yourself a document and print it out to have on board and I would label everything while I was at it.



Good luck,



LPd


Thank you for your help. I found only one tank and there is no trace of any pump on/in it. Also when activating the pump button, there is no noice or nothing that can suggest that there is a pump. Could it be that the previous owner took it off?
Thank you!

Talk about dodging a bullet. I'd get to the pumpout dock first thing & make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it with empty tanks the first time you try opening a bunch of valves. The consequences of a leak, defective part, or misunderstanding about what valve does what would be far less annoying.


Thank you for your suggestion, it makes a lot of sense. I will make sure to touch the connections only once the boat is going to be out of water, which is very soon.

Re: Toilet light Flashing Bavaria Crew 2004

I have a 2005 Bavaria 32 which is similar. T1 and T2 are lamps to indicate when a tank is greater than 3/4 full. If you have 1 head then you have only 1 tank. The lamps work regardless of whether the switch is on or off. The switch is for an (optional) macerator pump. There is no overboard discharge pump. Instead, there is likely a hose at the bottom of the holding tank connected to a seacock. Open the seacock and let gravity do the work if you are outside of any no discharge zones. Otherwise find a Pumpout station.

Good luck,
Chris
