Having never used a compster, they still sound like a great option. My goal to address things like the plumbing
removal/update immediately when we purchase
a boat to avoid any of the black water storage
drama I've witnessed and heard so much about. On a recent trip to the Chuuk we ran into a group of Aussies who sailed over and where without a properly functioning head
for the last two weeks of the trip. That left a big impression on my wife, so anything I can do to prevent a similar issue is critical to the process. Not to mention I'd just assume avoid being covered in poop while addressing an issue.
Since it's come up on several threads... How do current
users handle the lack of a bowl wash? If things get dicey from an intestinal distress
issue, do you find yourself needing to clean the actual bowl after each use. This was something I hadn't previously considered. I could see needing to dump the bucket after a couple days of HEAVY use, and while not desirable, wouldn't see that as a huge issue. That being said I'd hate for anyone to feel they had to remove the evidence of their distress
after each use...
