Pumping Out Bilge Waste

Like all commercial vessels, tour boat operators are required to properly dispose of holding tank (bilge) waste.  There are many methods of doing so ranging from a fixed pump out station, using a pump out vessel, a third party service or having your own pumps to do the job.

We’re profiling the case of one New York City based tour boat operator who uses the Mud Sucker 2FA-EC diaphragm pump to manage their pump out operations. First, some background. New York’s five boroughs are home to over a dozen ferry operators, water tours, water taxis – both public and private.  Millions of visitors and residents use any one of these services every year. Managing the kind of waste associated with so much visitor traffic requires some creativity and a pump out that can do the job without hassles over the long haul. Keeping the harbors clean is a mission backed by most New Yorker’s and the Mayor’s office.

Many operators use the Mud Sucker as a quick way to empty both waste oil (from their kitchens) and their vessels’ waste holding tanks with fluid transfer capabilities ranging from 20-160 GPM. The added advantage with the Mud Sucker is that it can transfer waste oil including waste trap grease and used vegetable oil. Since many boat operators have a kitchen for entertaining passengers as well as restrooms, it only makes sense to have a pump that can transfer both bilge waste and cooking oil. Continue reading
