I have installed an electric
toilet on my Jeanneau
40 . It works great when at dock
, but I noticed that when sailing fast, when I flush it, there is no water
flowing into the bowl.
When I got back to dock
, I looked at the hose coming from the through hull
valve and it was empty past the waterline. When I flushed the toilet, I could see the water
coming up the hose and then into the toilet as it should. I presume that the venturi effect is sucking the water out of the tube while sailing fast.
Is there any solution to this? Perhaps some kind of one-way valve that I could put in the system or a special something that could be mounted over the outside of the through hull
to stop the effect?
