Even the biggest capacity tanks will require emptying. As we mentioned above, some Canal & River Trust sanitation points have a pump-out station. A large number of marina
s on the system also offer pump-out services. At the time of writing this service will cost around £15 per session & some stations will require 2 go’s at getting the tank clean. You also have the option to buy (and store on board somewhere) a range of self pump-out equipment that will enable you to use sanitation points that do not have the facility.
On board tanks also require dosing with treatment in order to assist the breaking down of the waste so this cost has to be factored as well. Some marinas
and boat yards will offer this included in the price of pump-out.
It's worth ringing ahead to marina
s and boatyards on your route to get an approximation of cost. Use our Products and Services Directory
for an up to date list of those yards offering pump-out facilities.
