Is your Vessel’s Head System an Asset, a Headache, or Just a Mystery?
True North Marine offers a wide range of Plumbing & Sanitation Services, including repairs, installations, upgrades and most importantly – preventive maintenance! Our technicians are not only clean & professional, they’re also ABYC Certified and Factory Supported! A properly functioning head and an understanding of how to use it is foundational to the success of your boating experience!
Does that white thing on the left scare you? Or cause crazy amounts of frustration, irritation, or repulsive smells every time you flush?
Would you rather cross the marina in a violent thunderstorm rather than attempt to use your own facilities? A properly functioning head should add to the comfort and functionality of your boat. If you and your head are not on good terms – We can help!
Top Reasons Boat Owners Don’t Use their Heads:
They don’t understand how it works.
It smells when they flush it.
It smells, period…
They don’t know what they can flush.
It fills the holding tank, and then they have to pump it out.
It doesn’t flush properly.
Let Us Help!
Whether its VacuFlush, Raritan, Jabsco, Tecma, Headhunter, SeaLand, Dometic, (you get the idea…), we can service, repair, install or replace it. With Spring upon us, now is the best time for that annual preventive maintenance. Following your manufacturer’s preventive maintenance recommendations when it comes to replacing joker valves, duckbill valves, and various other seals and wear items will insure your best chances of avoiding embarrassing mid-weekend back-ups and breakdowns!
The hardest thing on head systems (and many other systems) is lack of use. If there are extended periods of time between your trips to the boat, consider our First Mate bi-weekly vessel checkout program. Part of this service is a thorough check and exercise of all on board heads and their supporting systems. Have questions about your head’s operation, maintenance, or just flat-out don’t understand the valves, hoses, and pumps that make that thing flush (or not flush…)? We can answer them in as much or as little detail as you require.
