Hi Colin,
what's the problem with the pump-out?
In England they're do-it -yourself and therefore available 24/7.

Honestly Peter I don't know. The pump-outs on the Shannon are self-service too.
I suspect its a vandalism issue but I don't know. Maybe someone from Dublin IWAI could fill us in.

If its vandalism why no key code or security key with a paid deposit? The pumpout does not have any water tap for a tank flush either so its hardly an adequate facility.

How on earth can you empty a holding tank without agitating/diluting the contents with water?????
Is there really no water tap nearby!!!!

No Peter, you would have to return to the marina after emptying, use a tap and then return to the pump out the far side of the docks.
