Let's talk poop... Treatment.

I am considering a lectra San. Thoughts, opinions? Will this suffice as treatment for us waters? Thanks everyone.

Yes, except in NDZs, where you can not discharge even a Lectra San, which is pretty sad, considering that the Lectra San's output is cleaner than most municipal sewage treatment plants IIRC.

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.

Yeah; Richardson Bay here in SF is a NDZ, and had 2.5 million gallons of raw sewage dumped into it a couple of years ago. In just 3 days the coliform levels were non-detectable. But being a NDZ you can't even dump gray water from a boat.

Lectra-san is fine for 'treated' discharge; but be sure your marina allows treated discharge if you plan to use it while in the slip. My marina does not even though it is not within a NDZ.

grey water, like discharge from the sink or shower, is generally allowed in NDZs... unless Richardson bay is specifically prohibiting it, it should be allowed there too.

Winter 2008/2009, there was a sewage spill in the Point Richmond area. They kept us out of the water there for a week. Assuming what you say is correct about how quickly Richardson Bay cleared up, it isn't true in all situations.

use a bucket, then dump it overboard. or just go for a swim. here you go - legal, compliant and at minimum cost.

I don't think that the "Bucket and Chuck It" method would be considered compliant.

perhaps, but doing it while swimming should certainly be fine (unless there are laws against that too now?)
