The LectraSan is very easy to install. It is roughly the size of a group 29 battery
and can be connected to either an above-the-waterline or below-the-waterline thru hull
for discharge. As long as the two toilets are within six feet of the LectraSan unit, one unit will easily serve two heads. I've seen installations further than 6 feet apart; it just depends on the pump. The LectraSan does not have a pump itself; it is simply a macerator and treatment device. Make sure your pump can pump the waste through it and out of the thru hull
Just remember, you will not be able to use the LectraSan unit in fresh water
, unless you have an external supply of salt water
. Some parts
of Puget Sound
also have low salinity levels in the ocean; and people with Lectra San units have been unable to successfully treat waste. I would recommend PuraSan over LectraSan, as it uses chlorine tablets to treat the waste instead of electrolysis
As far as you abilities are concerned, someone with a 6.5/10 knowledge base should have very few concerns about installation
. The process is straightforward; and the plumbing
is going to be the most difficult part if your space is limited.
Best of luck! Hope this helps.
