Hi,

I've recently taken out a hire boat on the Broads for a day and noticed that when flushing the toilet with the hand pump, blue water was pumped out the side of the boat and into the water. The water was that lovely pungent aroma of chemical blue and human waste. I reported this to the boatman who sorted us out with the boat and he said it was normal and didnt seem worried about it. I was quite surprised by this as I thought it was illegal to pump waste water in to the broads from boat toilets. However I'm not knowledgeable on the subject and so didn't challenge the guy. I'm just interested on any thoughts / advice about this, I'm happy to follow up with the company direct or with BA / EA / whoever but any help to get me a bit better informed gratefully received. Best wishes.

Almost certainly illegal unless  it was a very old sailing boat recommissioned as a day boat or you were using it at sea or on Breydon water when the law  is a bit unclear

Worth following up  . Not sure whether the BA or EA but others will know

This is just not acceptable. Wherever the boat was hired from need reporting to the EA and BA. Without knowing the boat type and details, it sounds like the holding tank may have been overfull, with the contents of the tank spilling out of the vent pipe.

Regards, Ray.

Dubious,  wouldn't you say....

Sorry Graham, not a private joke, just a lighthearted observation.

We always insist the toilet is pumped out when getting on to a picnic boat for a day.    Nothing worse than carrying another persons load of cr*p around with you.   Picnic boats are not by any means cheap for the day in fact they are well over £200 and for that we expect, water on board as well as a pumped out toilet, nothwithstanding for it to be cleaned as well despite Covid you would imagine the boats would be spotless, however, in our experience we have found that the picnic boats are not cleaned properly as we even found items in the fridge from previous hirers.





Women dont nag they just

things out...

Hi Richard I suspect that the holding tank was full and the blue water?? was coming from the over flow/breather pipe which is above water, if it was a sea toilet the outlet is under water and wouldn't be visible and they dont put chemical in flushing water which is taken from the river/sea, all though you can get a tablet in the flushing water inlet pipe that is a deodorizing chemical and not harmful,  many sailing boats have a sea toilet, the boat yard is only guilty of not emptying the holding tank which if you were the last hire of the day could well have had over use of the previous hirer's.
