Re: Marine Toilet (good, bad, and ugly)

To each their own. I'm going to pass on the composting head.

Several rebuttals however:

The most common cause of flush head odor is not flushing enough clean water. Most think, like a home toilet, if you don't see the stuff anymore, it's gone. You must chase it to the tank with clean water. 90% of users don't.

You can say the "earthy" smell is not objectionable, or perhaps not as objectionable, but it is odor.

When the fan fails, and all mechanical devices eventually fail, you will know the same odor as a foul flush head. There is a cruiser vid done by Drake Paragon, where the guys composted has a failed fan.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
