1989 2700 Open Head Drain Discharge Question
#1
Newbie to this forum.  Big Grin  

Where does the head floor drain discharge to on a 1989 2700 Open?

Mine is not draining.

I thought it drained directly to the outside but it does not appear to as (thinking the drain was plugged) I used a plunger with no positive result......the water still does not drain in the head compartment.

Is it to discharge to the black water drain?  Is there a valve that may have been closed?

TIA!!!

I'm not familiar with your specific boat, but in general, the floor drain in the head goes to a sump that has a pump in it that will pump overboard. There should be a switch in the head somewhere to turn it on and off.

Yes there is a pump switch but it is not pumping anything overboard and the drain remains full of water.

Sounds like it may be a defective pump or an inline valve is closed.

What do you folks think?

On my 2000 41 Open it drains to the shower/sink sump and is dis charged to the larger sump in the engine room. Try running a long piece of cable through the line and see if you can feel anything.

My 29 Open shower drain discharges into a sump which has a bilge pump under my stairs going into cabin. Theres the battery switches then underneath a small hatch. I would check the bilge pump and see if its functioning. 

Good luck.

You could have a bad or broken impeller on that pump. Motor spins but isn't turning the impeller.

I bought a boat one time and one of the bilge pumps was like that. Had to replace it.

Those little Rule pumps are not the best. They will spin off the plastic impeller and just run without doing anything. If it is running and not pumping it will not shut off because the float switch will never go down. It will kill your battery if it keeps running.
Do you hear it running constantly?

If the drain doesn’t go overboard it will go to a so-called shower sump box. The box is likely to be connected also to the AC drains. The box has an automatic pump inside. As soon as the water reaches the high level the pump will kick in and drain the box overboard.

One thing though, the water coming from the shower(s) drain(s) will enter the box through a filter. The filter is usually a piece of perforated plastic pipe. It just sits between the box sides. Water enters on one side and is filtered before flowing into the sump. Hair (especially of the long usually female variety) will eventually clog that filter. Resulting in water not draining into the box.

Open the top cover and locate the filter. Remove filter and clean. Put back and you should be good.
