Your owner’s manual will show the location of your Grady’s water

With the arrival of warm weather boating season now is a good time to
flush your fresh water system and then refill your tank(s).
Water in tanks sometimes stagnates for weeks at a time and can develop
an odor from bacteria.
There are many products that can treat this, but the most popular is
common household bleach.
Not much is needed to be effective: a 10% bleach/water solution or two
pints of bleach per 50 gallons of water should be run through the water
Run the pumps / turn on faucets to cycle out the bleach solution, and
follow with flushing the entire system with just fresh water before
refilling the tank. We suggest “refreshing” twice during a year.
And, you can add lemon juice periodically to keep things fresh smelling.
Water fill locations vary per model.
Refer to your owner’s manual to locate your Grady’s water fill and view
your fresh water system diagram.
