Install sewage tanks GS52

Postby Herminia » Thu Jan 09, 2014 6:36 pm

Hi all,

I am looking into installing sewage tanks in my GS52. Have anybody done this before? Where are the tanks located and is the installment complicated? And also, how big are the tanks? Do they need to be purpose made or is it possible to buy them somewhere? Any advise would be appreciated!

No, but I have thought about it. For the aft head I was thinking about using the bilge space between the companionway ladder and the chart table. This currently has the calorifier in so I'd have to move that. Then the bilge space in the pt fwd cabin for the fwd head. But that is as far as I have got.

Ok, I just got a quote from Pier12 for installing 2 x sewage tanks, it says 700 euros each. I will look further into this when I get there and will report back where they eventually plan to place them.

Hi all,

I am looking further into the sewage tank installation together with the guys from Pier 12. They say the best is to install them behind the locker under deck. You will then of course lose some locker space, but it has the advantage of gravity emptying so you don't need a pump to get the shit out. I will go for stainless steel tanks. The quote was only for the work, so parts and ss tank is in addition. Here is a picture of the locker unit in the forward head removed and ready to start installation.

Will keep you updated.

Rune, this was a response to this question from the previous owner of my boat. He is something of an expert on GS 52 matters and has offered to provide advice on any GS52 issues.

"The official place for the aft heads tank is under the berth in the master cabin. The whole floor to the berth unscrews and lifts out but one can examine the options through the various inspection ports. There is a structure supporting the bed which is not all essential for stability of the bed base. Some of this is cut away and replaced with struts above the newly installed tank, both holding the tank in place and supporting the bed. There are routes through from there for the deck connections and breather and there are plenty of sites for the pump and a route through to the toilet."

...not sure if I like the idea of sleeping on top of a septic tank, but I guess if you use the super thick rubber hose it would be fine. Anyway you have already made your decision which sounds like a good option too.

Many thanks for this information. This is probably a good location, but I think I am still happy with having the tanks in the lockers, mainly due to gravity emptying. It just makes it so much easier to open a valve instead of having to pump it out every time you empty it.

Is the previous Owner a member of the forum? Maybe you can send him a special invitation, it sounds like it would be of great benefit for all of us to have him here :-)

Did you install the spacer washer that goes inside the sidecar hub that keeps the proper spacing/distance between the wheel hub and the sidecar hub?
