    You can drain off water, sand and mud from the chain locker by means of a bilge eductor which is normally driven by water from the fire main or general service main.
    The reason for using a bilge eductor is that sand and mud mixed with water would damage a normal pump.

    Hope this answers your query.

      for smaller ship combined piping system with semi rotary hand pump can be used to drain forpeak tank, chain locker etc.

      mud need to be fitted at pipe end.
