I'm trying to plan out my water
and treatment systems for my boat as I'm getting ready to start the first bit of interior
demo and rebuilding and that will include the area with the head
I have not been able to find much out there with detailed info on how to plan out your system, placement, pumps, tanks
I have a 58' boat and plan to have one nice head
in the V-birth with a shower
, toilet, and lavatory. Then a double sink in the galley
and a utility sink on deck
for cleaning fish
I would like to be able to build a pressurized water
system and use a real toilet. That's really my big thing. Not to sound unclassy, but I'm a pretty big guy in certain respects and the marine
heads just don't fit if you catch my drift. And, if I'm going to be living aboard
my boat, I really don't want to dread that particular part of the day
A few years ago I had read of some systems you could install that were basically self-contained sewerage systems that instead of just keeping your waste in a holding take actually treated it sufficiently so that it could be expelled as grey water. It wasn't USCG approved and the design I had seen recommended a switching system so that you could hold the treated waste when on an inland waterway. Does anybody have any knowledge of these?
Also, any recommendations on tanks
sizes and manufacturers and such?
Finally this is probably a dumb question but one I can't find the answer to: Can watermakers be used in freshwater or brackish water? The websites don't say, and I am curious if algea and such in river or lake water would mess them up.
Thanks for any pointers in advance.
