I've recently discovered water collecting in the forward bilge which if left collects and runs back into the aft bilge and under the engine.

I recently pumped out the waste holding tank and poured a small amount of bloo loo chemical through the toilet basin and flushed through to the holding tank to minimise smells.

Interestingly, I now have blue coloured water collecting in the forward bilge area which trickles back into the aft bilge and also collects under the engine.

I'm guessing that the holding tank and / or connecting inlet pipe from the sea toilet is the obvious culprit here...

What I need to find out is how to gain access to inspect these pipes from the toilet end as it seems that this is the most likely place where the pipe has either become disconnected or split?

I've checked the hose connections at the holding tank end in the engine bay and all seems fine.

Any suggestions or advice greatly appreciated.
