Don't forget that "above the waterline" includes at all angles of heel. If your toilet is below the waterline when heeled, you need an anti-siphon valve.

These are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.

Does this mean that when you are on the throne you have to stick your head out of a deck hatch?

Thanks for all the replies, it makes sense to have it on the pressure side of the pump going to the bowl. Calder's book just shows it between the thru hull and head, it wouldn't work that way. The top of the bowl is above water line, except when heeled over on stb. tack so I'll put one in. I also need to install one on the discharge hose from the holding tank that goes to the macerator and then to the thru hull (the same thru hull used for the direct overboard discharge, there is a SS manifold on the thru hull). This line runs horizontally just barely above waterline and would be under water when heeled allowing water to run back through the pump and into the holding tank if the Y-valve is open to tank.

Thanks again, John

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I've never seen one in that position. The tank has a vent, so it has a built-in siphon break and the macerator acts as a check valve.
