Hot crusty Do Do's

I was reading Latts&Atts and came across an ad for Incinolet toilets so off I went to the web site and was wondering if anyone has any comments on the practacalites of such a toilet on a boat??The Toilet if ya havent caught on it turns Do Do's into crusty dust by way of electrical incineration.From a power useage point it lacks favour but from an enviromental point it has got to be an idear worth looking into.Mudnut

Crispy fired doo doo.

I'm afraid Mudnut. That would probably require alot of electricity to make that happen in a short period of time?

120v AC @ 15 amps, but it doesn't say how long the duty cycle is.

They call their Coast Guard certified model the "workboat," which makes one think of large diesel engines running constantly or dedicated generators producing plenty of power for units like these.

Hmmm, or you could do what the African natives do, and use it to cook with once it has dried. I wonder what flavour it would give smoked fish?

Flavours

I guess the flavour might depend on the "donor's" diet.

If so, the flavour could probably be varied by changes in the diet!!

You might also be able to get more than one use from those really hot chillis you have been hanging on to for the right dish.

Anyway, as long as it doesn't taste too much like s**t, most people will eat it.

Have you looked into the composting type heads? Or was this more of a humor type post?

PBzeer,It wasn't meant to be funny,I just saw the loo for sale in latts&atts,and thought after going to the web site that it was a safe alternative for the enviroment especialy the ocean.It seems to draw a bit to much power for standard boat systems,but then again I was more cocerned about not polluting the ocean noy the poor old battery banks.mudnut
