A Better Marine Head Diagram

Nigel Calder has these in Boat Owners Mechanical & Electrical Manual and are much better than my first posted diagrams.

By putting a 'T' in the drain line of the head sink, you can use it to provide water to the head. Additionally, when sailing on that side of a tack, you can use fresh water to flush and not have water intrusion from outside the boat. Also, when leaving the boat, you can flush with fresh water, therefore reducing the STENCH from raw water sitting and fermenting all those little critters. Thta's what I did with both of my heads. Love it!

You lost me. How is water from the drain line gonna fill the head, unless the sink faucet is running? Also, most cruisers would never waste water like that...

The thru hull has a 'T'. You use raw water unless you are purging / cleaning the system. This also lets you use white vinegar to clean your lines to de-scale / de-mineralize teh lines and rubber parts so they last longer.
