Customer Question

I recently purchased a 1997 220 Coastal. The only thing I cannot get to work is the fish box pump out. I am not sure where the pump for the fish box is, or if it even has one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Trace the drain out of the box, there should be a valve if manual or will be a pump if electric, usually with a switch they do not use an electric valve, it's usually a pump to pump out, once there you can then use a voltmeter to test power and ground to the pump to see if either is lost or if not if the pump/impeller is bad or a blockage (disconnect hose from pump and tank should empty if not there is a valve or a blockage.
Thank you!
