AirHead, who's got one and what do ya think?

I have a fairly new Jabsco manual with Y-valve but no macerator or holding tank. I'm considering alternatives.

I can replace a lot of hoses and fittings for a grand.

About two dozen on Gemini's per the user group on Yahoo, not one negative comment. I'm getting either an airhead or a natureshead this season and installing it.

Sure 1k buys a lot of hoses, but you can't buy clean air and no pump outs

Interesting system. Any independent links you can send me too outside of the airhead site?
Thanks

Airhead

What about liveaboards? If you use it all the time would it just fill up? How long is needed for the breakdown process?

Something very weird about this name for a product, I would be less than willing to tell someone "Feel free to use my airhead" or "I got a airhead"....Some people might not get the connection that its not a person and is a head...
