Thanks for all the responses. Great into for the next victim of the marine head
I'm out of that game
now. The experimental head has worked beyond my wildest dreams. Far better than even a gravity drop because it's truly odorless. No marine had or RV head can claim that.
Ok. One odor
. The head smells like peat moss Since that's what we are using.
I think the poster commenting about composting heads smelling bad had a valid point. I reasoned it wasn't a good idea to have decaying feces sitting around so instead of a composter, I simply made a dry head. Urine goes one way, poo goes the other way.
The poo is buried with a little peat moss each time. I can stick my head down past the toilet seat, into the poo chamber and take a whiff... Absolutely nothing. Peat moss smell only.
I will never use a standard type toilet again.
The real nerve wracking part was bringing the SB (sh@t bag...lol) to the trash ashore with the other trash. It was 1/4 full after a little over a week so I decided to try it out. I used tall kitchen garbage bags even though the receptacle is only 14" high. That enables me to pull the huge collar of a bag from around the outside and bring it together to form a great knot
. An airtight knot
. Brought the first SB ashore without incident or smell.
It's truly a miracle. No more problems with marine or RV heads. A true miracle.
