Deck Wash Issues


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

i have been having some issues with my deckwash system. Its a jabsco system that picks up via a stainless skin fitting on the bottom of the hull. Most of the time it works fine, but if i use it when the boat is moving quickly the water drains and it develops an air lock, then when i next stop it will not pick up again.

Is there a way i can stop this? do i need a one way valve of some sort between the skin fitting and the pump strainer?

cheers arman
