Houseboat Plumbing - Now where did that hose go?

Simple houseboat tips, ideas, and solutions. Take photos, drawings, and schematics to remember how it all came apart, and how it should all go back together.

This is Mo in San Antonio, and I'm still in dry dock. Maybe I'll be on the ICW by Spring. This picture is what is left of my houseboats plumbing.

However, I did receive my two water tanks today. I have almost tripled my fresh water capacity from 40 gals to 116 gals.

Just wanted to share a funny picture with you all, Mo.

Well Mo, thanks a million for sharing that hilariously funny picture, it put a big smile on my face, and made me laugh out loud :)

Boy, can I relate to that photo, since I also have done some major overhaul projects on some of our houseboats, and have often said to myself, How Do I Put It All Back Together?

Often I was really glad that I had used a digital camera, or a scratch pad to jots some notes, to keep track of how hoses, wire, or cabling connections were installed before I removed them all.

By taking a picture, or jotting some notes down first, it would make life much easier and less stressful when it came time to re-install, and you don't end up with any extra pieces.

In closing, glad to hear that you have tripled your water capacity, since fresh potable water is always a valuable thing to have onboard. Do keep us posted with your progress.
