Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

A footrest in the right spot takes care of the height problem. I live in a 31 footer, with the head aft. Having a regular marine head doesnt change its position on the boat.
A regular marine head is anything but sanitary, carrying around hoses and a pump full of wet sewage. Wait until it breaks down. Then they will find out how "sanitary " it is. Composters dont break down, and will never sink your boat.The advantage of a composter is you get to clean the area around the head every time you dump it, an area which rarely gets cleaned around a regular marine head.
