I recently installed a lavac in my boat, with a gravity drain holding tank. When more than 3 miles out, all i have to do is turn a valve and the tank drains itself! They seem guest freindly to me, just different than some might be used to. The pump itself macerates the waste as it goes through it. Getting the water level in the bowl right tales some time, but it isn't any different than another toilet, although a tb would be nice, i don't have one yet. If for some reason the bowl doesn't fill right, I have found that just flushing it again works. The vacuum is very strong, the seat lid bends down quite a bit when you pump it (from all the suction). I will say this, I installed a Groco ball valve just before the water enters the toilet, after the vented loop, just incase. The water intake is looped above the waterline, with a siphon break. With these 2 safety features, my boat is much less likely to sink because of a toilet leak!
ON A SIDE NOTE; if you like windsports...go to youtube and type in extreme kite wing.....I can't wait for the snow!!!!!
