Depending on your setup you may need to close your sanitary system seacock first. Carefully undo the fastener on your macerator. Have a clear escape path available. Make sure no spectators are blocking your exit.
Before sticking your fingers into any holes identify the macerator blades and make sure to avoid them as they are really sharp and will cut through your gloves and into your fingers.
A good set of automotive picks comes in really handy on a boat. Especially for cleaning out blockages in a macerator. Not only will you keep your fingers safe but you’ll have a much better grip on whatever is blocking the system by using a pick.
