Jannock Pumpout Page

This site has been running for 10 years now so it must be time the content got round to pumpout toilets.

Jannock has a large pumpout tank which puts a horrible lean on the boat once it gets over half full. Although there are marina and BW operated pay pumpout points around the canal system, we invested in a Lee Sanitation Self Pumpout kit to 'do it ourselves' which has payed for itself now! This kit has two advantages as far as we are concerned - it saves us money and it gives us a bit of exercise occasionally.
In order to 'do it yourself' it is handy to know where the sanitary stations are.

Leesan Self Pumpout kit

The information contained in the table below was compiled by David Hymers who has kindly allowed me to publish & maintain his list. The inclusion of a hose length in the list indicates that you can use your own pump to pumpout . Any comments in the Electric column means there is an official machine on site. No entry in that column indicates a sanitary station was used for a self pumpout using own equipment.

If you have any update information then Please email us and we will update this table.


David's self pumpout kit has 3 hoses, one 30 foot hose and two 20 foot hoses.
The distances quoted in the
Hoses column indicate the specific combination he found neccessary for each sanitary station listed.
