Water tank filling issues was created by Frederick Chance
Recently I am having an issue filling my water tanks. I open both deck fills as suggested & slowly fill the tanks. Somehow once both the tanks are filled a siphon gets started & the port tank is emptied into the bilge running the auto. bilge pump about every 15 minutes till the tank is empty. For some reason there is a connection via a 5/8 inch hose from one tank to the other.as well as the very unusual vent system . The vent loop connecting the two tanks is about 5 feet above the cabin sole with the third hose going back down thru a small hole in the hanging locker into the bilge
Has anyone else experienced this issue? For many years I have not had this problem & now it is causing me grief. Any suggestions? Fred Chance Wild Oats Hull # 281
