James Baldwin (Two times circumnavigator): "The Foolproof Head"
Read Article: => http://www.sailnet.com/collections/a...eid=baldwi0013
Since 1963, The Lavac Toilet has been a favorite with sailors throughout the world, providing their owners with long and trouble free use. The Lavac toilet is one of the simplest marine toilets to operate and requires virtually no maintenance.
What makes The Lavac better??? The patented vacuum flushing system has not been equaled by any other marine toilet manufacturer. After use, close the Lavac seat and lid and then pull the handle a few times. As waste is pumped out a vacuum is formed which draws in the flushing water. Wait a few seconds and the vacuum breaks. It's that simple. The only moving part in the Lavac is the diaphragm within the detached heavy duty pump.
The Lavac Toilet is available in two different models with four different pump configurations:
marine toilet Lavac Zenith Toilet
marine toilets Lavac Popular Toilet
lavac toilet Lavac T/A Pump (Surface mounted)
lavac toilets Lavac U/D Pump (Behind the bulkhead mounted)
marine toilet Lavac 12 Volt Electric Pump
marine toilets Lavac 24 Volt Electric Pump
Are you tired of repairing your marine toilet??? Then it is time to throw the old thing overboard (not literally) and replace it with a Lavac. The most reliable and dependable marine toilet on the market today.
I have known two people that have given up and gotten rid of Lavac's. One didn't understand the elegant simplicity and neither did the mechanic going through his systems so they pulled them out. DUMB! The second person I have yet to interview and he should know better. Some of the most respected sailors and NA's reccomend them. I am a big fan!!
