Re: Another crappy toilet subject

We have a Purasan. So far, so good. 2 Years now.

As for discharge... They city of San Antonio's water/waste department only has to report sewage spills of over 500,000 gallons. That's a s-load of... And the spills happen ALL OF THE TIME.

Re: Another crappy toilet subject

Thanks to all of you for your help, I got my questions answered. Currently I was using an older model electro san but over time and various problems especially smell it is time to change. We have the boat show coming to Vancouver this week and hopefully I will be able to make my purchase
Happy safe boating to all of you

We have an Airhead on Mulligan and plumbed the urine tank to the ships holding tank via a 12 volt liquid pump. We incorperated check valves and a quick disconect to facilitate dumping the old fassion way if the need arises. With no solids to deal with the ships main holding tank can litterally go months before needing a pumpout or us needing to get outside the no NDZ to dump.

Thank you for the sensible reply that makes sense using the marina head didn't make sense for me either the human body makes quite a bit of urine in a weeks cruise and stopping in a marina just to dump pee sounded crazy to me your solution makes lots of sense
