It's times like these that I'm reminded how truly fortunate I am in regard to my wife! She's put up with the worlds smallest water
closet on our last boat, head wouldn't pull in flush water
so had to dip a bucket first, foul tasting fresh water with occasional chunks (hey it didn't kill us), no refrigeration
, little room below, and very little storage
. When I dragged her out for trips multiple times a summer at 10-17 days at a time, she absolutely loved it!
Last year when we upgraded boats we inherited an old dreaded recirculating toilet. These operate under the brilliant though to save fresh water by using the effluent to flush with! Yes she even put up with that while pregnant and with a newborn. What a woman
Anyways I redid the head this year and am using just a manual pump with all PVC and no hoses anywhere. So far very happy but in the future we'd like to go to something that sits higher. Our new water closet is palatial but the head itself sits on the floor. So the little head we have now is a ways down there when going to sit down. However I hear that this is actually better for your innards to be squatting while pooping!
Why are you using a macerator with the Lavac
? I didn't think they needed one. Couldn't you use the macerator in line for when discharging overboard
when allowed? Otherwise the waste from the lavac in the tank will not stay solid for long with all the rolling and sloshing it will be doing.
