Not that I disagree with your basic point, but urea is very soluble in water. That's why it's found in urine.

You NEVER pee over the side? Come-on!

In the Grand Canyon tourists (on the raft trips) are told to pee in the river. This is from the Forest Service. "its sterile as it is delivered; it is instantly dilluted with thousands of gallons of water. If you pee on the river bank creating smal concetrated wet spots you do risk harming the local eco-system." They do insist you burry the poop.

I would not think of dumping the urine in a marina but under way it is no different than leaning off the transom.

We have an Air head. Its great in the Great Lakes. Most of the time we can plan disposal in a marina toilet. We bought an extra pee-pot. The pot of bon-bons gets deliverd to the woods where I dig a hole. I recharge the pot using dried leaves and mulch. Two of us can operate two to four continuous weeks between servicing. If you only use it at the rate of weekend cruising, it may compost at the use rate and will not require emptying for our entire summer season. I have a solar operated vent on the pot. Plan to replace the crappy Ni-Cads with Li batteries. You can tell when the Ni-Cad quits.

The selection of AH vs. NH was based on geometry regarding the available space. The AH opens flat against the wall and the pee pot can be removed without disturbing anything else. Other items to consider is that the fan on the NH is at the unit rather than at the extreme end of the hose. Condensation in the hose for NH can run down the line into the fan. Not an issue if you use a solar deck vent.

We also have two Vacuflush toilets on the boat. One goes to a holding tank and one is straight out. Valves are, of course, locked out. The biggest holding tank we could fit was 18 gallons. This makes the AH very important cruising remote areas of the lakes & North Channel where you may be far away from a facility.

I don't have any issues with anyone dumping human pee in the ocean; but I do however, take issue with pee being poured into a galley sink where hands, dishes and utensils are washed and food is prepared. That's just gross, no matter how you look at it.

Again, I'm not being judgemental here.... to each their own.... but I do find it rather hard to believe that there are so many posts on this thread debating the merits of dumping gallons of pee into the kitchen sink, and find it alarming that so many agree with the practice of doing so.
Heh!
That would raise some eyebrows.
I don't particularly agree with it. Why not just take it a step or three to the outside? How hard can that be.
I do however, recognize that "gross" is subjective and societies develop taboos.
Do you carry (or did you used to carry) a cloth handkerchief?

Then I make sure any sponges are put up where they are not used. Don't you people clean your sinks?
They don't have to.

They don't clean the counter tops or spills on the sole either I guess.

I can't afford to have any one over for dinner.

I live on $499 a month.

Re: Dump Airhead urine in galley sink?

If you want the real and correct answer to the OP question, just ask your girlfriend or wife, (or both). As noted by one of the others. She'd skin me alive. I don't have to ask.

Perhaps if we could convince them to find a use for it? You guys let me know how it works out.

Take heart all you puritans, there is always karma...nature is all about balance


About what we eat and where they and we swim
There are more and more cases of flesh eating bacteria. One of my patients contracted a form of this in his intestines. I can't remember if it was large or small intestines, and sadly it didn't really matter, it was all toast. Ate raw oysters I think it was. This was a young guy (46) who just went to new Orleans for the weekend, and came back with a death sentence. I've seen this stuff get the limbs, groins, but never in the gut. Sad. Health department sites many reasons for the jump in these types of infections. My guess is poop and pharmaceuticals dumped in areas that don't have much tidal exchange. I could explain further but I'm sure your eyes are well glazed over by now

And to contradict most of what I just said: Your pee needed to save the fish farms | SciGuy | a Chron.com blog
Excerpt: “Human urine is a stable liquid and contains valuable nutrients. I see no reason why it couldn’t be used for this purpose if it provides a suitable chemical environment for the zooplankton to grow,” says Stephen Smith, an environmental biochemist at Imperial College London.


I got it off the Internet, so it must be true

good post but I want to also keep poking people.

Three heads on one boat and only room for one 18 gal tank.
Hmm.
Not that composting is bad.
