Re: electric vs manual toilets

We have an electrical macerator-pump head in the aft lavatory and a manual pump head in the forward lavatory. Both have performed well during the 10 years we've owned the yacht tho' we're pretty rigorous about routine maintenance. The electrical head is very convenient and preferred by my wife and daughter but it does move a lot of water and tends to fill a holding tank more quickly than does the manual head. I would not have electrical only, just to be on the sale side in the event of electrical problems.


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
