Hope I can revive this thread a little. I am living aboard and I currently flush with raw water. It smells although the head is used frequently.
I don't like the idea of T'ing from sink discharge thru-hull since that means I either have to pump everything from sink to the holding tank or constantly have to reach in and turn the thru hull on and off.
I was thinking of T-ing the head inlet from the sink drain hose but at a position just above the waterline. After all, from waterline up to the sink, the hose is filled with fresh water all the time. So, I can wet-pump the head a couple of times without closing the sink discharge thru-hull and it would pull in the fresh water standing in the hose. If more is needed, run the faucet a little and pump more.
Does this sound reasonable? Am I missing something?
