Note that it is illegal to use them in coastal waters in the US. It looks like you are located in Mass.
Ummm, no you can use macerator pumps anywhere for anything. What isn't legal is discharging sewage overboard.

It is illegal to discharge or empty the contents of your boat's holding tank in U.S. territorial water ( within a three-mile limit). Some boats are equipped with a "Y" -valve that allows for the direct discharge of raw sewage. This valve can only be used outside the three-mile limit. Coast Guard regulations require that the "Y"-valve must be secured in the closed position (by padlock, non-resealable tie, removal of handle or other physical barrier) when the boat is within three miles of shore. Boaters can be fined for non-compliance.
