    Signature 330 Holding Tank

    Hello Iggy, Where is vent filter supposed to be located? Is it near the tank or near the exterior wall of the boat. I will try to look for it and see its status.

    I always pump out when I go out since the pumps are just by the entrance of the marina. So on the average, it’s once a week with two adults using the toilet on weekends. But with this incident, I would probably use the marina bathroom more often, just for our peace of mind.

    Signature 330 Holding Tank

    Hi Hatem, I think my system is with a separate vacuum tank. I haven’t seen the actual holding tank yet. I suspect it is down below somewhere. I will try to trace from the hoses. I could see the vacuum tank only. It’s a white tank with nothing in it but probably air. I usually turn off the vacuum and turn it on just when we use the bowl. It turns off automatically after about less than a minute. At that point, we can flush our pee at least 3 times before it needs recharging. I leave the vacuum switch on only when other people are around so as to make sure they can flush normally. I suspect the problem was with an overcharged tank, like you said. But how did it reach that point? What were the possible causes of the overcharge. Isn’t there a vent that should release excess pressure from the tank? I always make sure the holding tank is empty every time I pump out. When there is no more material coming out, I flush the bowl twice and continue pumping again. At that point, I can see that clearer water coming out. Then I flush again twice, and pump out again to see the clean water come out. That’s when I am sure the tank is really empty.

    Mine has a separate vacuum generator. I can only see the vacuum generator but haven’t seen the holding tank itself.

    The exhaust line was not clogged. I was able the pump everthing out. The problem was that the indicator did not say the tank was full but when I opened the cover, there was strong pressure that pushed materials out.

    Thanks for all the replies. I will re-evaluate all the possible conditions that led to this "disaster" based on your comments. By the way, I examined the level indicator and it only has 3 indications: "POWER" means the system is active and is always on whatever is the level of stuff in the tank is, "3/4" is supposed to warn you that it is nearing full. And the last one is "DO NOT USE" which is obviously the indication that the tank is already full. I have never gone to the point where the indicator is lit at the DO NOT USE level. I always pump out when at the 3/4 indication. That's why it was a complete surprise to me when the system acted that like it was about to explode. Now, every morning, I try to open the pump out port very slowly to check if it is pressurized. So far, it is not. Will give update when something new happens. Thanks again.

    Yes, I gave instructions to them and checked the bowl each time to make sure it was properly flushed.

    I am pretty sure I pumped it out completely. I even had to flush the toilet twice after the flow of stuff stopped and pumped out again. The level indicator retuned to just POWER. There was heavy use after that because of some friends who visited but the indicator only went as far as 3/4. We continued use for 2 days more watching the indicator that stayed at 3/4. And that’s when I pumped out again and the spills. So my question is does the level indicator flash FULL at anytime after 3/4? Or is 3/4 the final warning?

    Hi Everyone, The holding tank in my Signature 330 has a level indicator. Right after pumping out, the level indicator shows "POWER". After a few days of use, it went to 3/4. So we continued using it for a while until we were able to reach a pump out station. It was still showing 3/4 at that time we were at the pump out. But when I tried to open the cover for the discharge port, there was pressure and some of the stuff spilled out. So my question is whether my tank level indicator is faulty. Does it not show FULL or something similar? Thanks for any help.

    Very enlightening explanation, Hatem. Will be saving this in my permanent boating notes. Thanks.

    Drive Trim

    Hello everyone, I have a 2004 Sig 330 with Penta Duo outdrives. When I work on the trim adjustments at the shifter, both drives seems to go up and down. The port side drive trim indicator at dash seems to work, but the starboard side is stuck at 12 o’clock. What can you suggest I do to get the drives on the same level, at least while I get someone to fix it? I can hardly see the drives under the water. Also, what is the difference between drive trim adjustment and the trim tab adjustment? When do you use one over the other. Thanks.

    Thanks for all the info. The boat is still in a yard for bottom painting and will give more details about the gauge when I get hold of it.
