Answer

No. It works using sea water

Answered on 04/05/2013 by IAN OCONNELL

Answer

There is always supply water remaining in the bowl after a flush cycle. There is no provision for a dry bowl withe this system.

Answered on 04/05/2013 by GARY GISH

Answer

if you install the outlet hose so that its the height you want the water in the bowl, no. however, if the hose is lower than the bowl it will be dry... so you pick. i will caution that you should keep some water in the bowl to prevent tank gases from backing up into the boat.

Answered on 04/05/2013 by DAVID COLLINS

Answer

Not sure what you mean by this question. This unit requires a water supply to function. This supply could be from a holding tank or in my case, direct from the lake. Waste is of course flushed by water into an onboard holding tank.

Answered on 04/05/2013 by BRIAN LECLAIR

Answer

That is because the water in the tank is higher than the toilet, you need to install a valve.

Answered on 07/19/2013 by DALE DIEMEL

Answer

The instructions that came with the toilet read "If the toilet is or can be installed i is, or can be, below waterline at any normal attitude of vessel heel and/orr trim, a 3/4" Vented Loop Fitting must be installed in the length of hose connecting the flushing pump to the inlet seacock. The Vented Loop Fitting must be positioned so it remaims slightly* above the waterline at all angles of heel and trim."

Answered on 07/16/2013 by THOMAS GARRITY

Answer

Mine is mounted about one foot above the waterline and remains almost totally empty after flushed.

Answered on 07/16/2013 by THOMAS GARRITY

Answer

Shawn, Not good. Does the toilet sit above the water line? Do you have a loop in the water inlet hose above the toilet? I have one installed and the water does not siphon into the bowl so it looks like you have a problem with the water intake line.

Answer Question

Question

how much water does it take to cycle through one flush??

Asked on 01/22/2013 by Jim Davey

Top Answer

It depends. The toilet is push button operated and the user controls the flush cycle. It takes a longer flush to dispose of solid waste, but never more than a bowlful, probably about a gallon. It takes very little to dispose of non-solid waste, just a small push of the botton. We have a 30 gallon black water tank and it is sufficient for a three (3) day weekend for two with this toilet.

Answered on 01/23/2013 by R E PEARSON

Answer

Very little to a bowl full. Depends on the amount to flush.

Answered on 01/22/2013 by THOMAS MAURER

Answer

The user controls the amount of water used in each flush by the amount of time the flush button is pressed. Just press the button until the bowl is cleared. Sometimes only a small amount of water is required, maybe a half gallon, other times more will be required.

Answered on 01/22/2013 by GARY GISH

Answer

About two cups of water.

Answer

I turn the breaker off so the women don't fill the holding tank----tell them to use glass of water from sink

Answered on 01/24/2013 by GREGORY WALKER

Answer

It varies since you control the length of the cycle by holding the flush button until the waste is gone. This has proven to be a great choice for our live aboard. Easily installed too.

Answered on 01/23/2013 by BRIAN LECLAIR

Answer

it depends how long you hold the switch on i figure i usually run about 1 gallon through it

What about rebuild kits for the pump/Macerator?

Answered on 12/09/2011 by JESSE WATTS

Answer

Mine hangs over a step in the floor about 1" so there's a starboard plate screwed into the floor and the front hole has a bolt and the back two holes have lags that go thru the plate.

Answered on 12/09/2011 by THOMAS MAURER

Answer

I created a "mount" out of a 2 x 8 piece of mahoganny. To make it look pretty I also routered the edges (also makes the corners less sharp - saves toes stumping into a sharp edge of the mount in the dark). I cut the 2 x 8 an inch or so larger than the toilet base (including the pump and pump housing), basically a long rectangle. I put 5200 on the bottom side of the 2 x 8 and secured the 2 x 8 with six (6) number 10 stainless 2 1/2 wood screws to the deck. I then painted (or you can stain) the 2 x 8. Then I mounted the toilet atop my mahoganny mount with 2 inch pan head stainless screws (also number 10, I think) with stainless washers. It raised the toilet about 1 1/2 inches but that was not a problem and, so far, the toilet does not rock and roll. I cannot recommend this if you ever want to pull up or remove the wooden "mount" because the 5200 holds really, really well to my fiberglass floor in the head.

I have purchased two units this year. the units are low profile so you might want to build some type platform and then fasten the unit with three !/4 x 1.5inch lag screws. this worked fine for me

Question

Our boat just went in the water after winter storage.The 37010-1090 was winterized by filling bowl with plumbing anti freeze and pumping the anti freeze thru to the holding tank.When I tried to use the toilet it would not pump in lake water. I filled the bowl with water from a pail and was able to pump into holding tank. Does that mean the impeller is okay? RGC

Asked on 05/01/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

As far as I would think if the pump empties the bowl it should also provide water from the intake source. Make sure there is no shutoff valve that has been closed. Possibly remove the intake hose from the motor and using normal land hose water pressure try using reverse flow to see if you get flow out the intake. It seems that something is blocking the intake. If it was working when the boat was pulled out itl should work going back in unless you get tricked by a vented loop hose that prevents completing suction to the pump motor.

Answered on 05/03/2016 by THOMAS GARRITY

Answer

It likely is OK. I have two of these toilets and the problem I sometimes have is when the toilet isn't used for some time, the intake gets plugged with algea, etc.. I'm talking about the through hull. You can easily back flush it with a hose.

Answered on 05/02/2016 by June Hoyt

Answer

There is either a blockage or air leak on the inlet side of the pump or it has a faulty impeller.

Answered on 05/02/2016 by TOM ETHERIDGE

Answer

Yes, it should be okay. If the liquid is leaving the toilet bowl and water coming in then things should be running okay. I usually put a little anti freeze in the toilet and pumped it just a small amount into the holding tank when we lived in Rochester, NY. Where do you live?

bowl keeps filling up ?

Asked on 07/29/2014 by Undisclosed

We have ours set to keep a small amount of water in the very bottom but no water in the bowl itself.

Answer

Water is either coming in from the inlet side or the discharge side of the toilet. If the toilet is mounted below the waterline, an anti-siphon device should be installed that will be above the water line at all angles of heel. This would prevent the water from coming in on the inlet side. If the water is coming into the toilet from the discharge side,an anti-siphon device whould be installed between the toilet and the discharge, whether it is overboard or into a holding tank. The device should be installed such that it is above the waterline if the discharge is directly overboard, and above the holding tank if it the discharge is going to the tank.

Answered on 07/29/2014 by TOM ETHERIDGE

Answer

short response; "If the toilet is to be installed below the waterline or may be below the waterline at any angle of heel or trim, properly installed vent loops must be used to prevent flooding."

Answered on 07/29/2014 by THOMAS GARRITY

Answer

There needs to be a shut off valve on the intake line of water to the toilet. When flushing open the valve and let the water in to clean the toilet and be flushed out to the holding tank or if at sea over board.

The discharge port is the one pointing at you that you see in the picture. The intake and raw water port to the toilet are under the plastic, dress-up cover. I believe it's a 1" port which comes with a tubing adapter to make it 1-1/4"

Question

Can this toilet be flushed dry like the manual version? To save water.

Asked on 11/01/2011 by Dale Hobgood

Top Answer

Not recommended. You could install a convenient shut off valve in your supply but you would be running the intake impeller dry- not good! A short flush uses virtually no water as the intake pump tends to prime a bit slower than the mascerator discharge side. I do not know what water you are trying to save though, we flush with sea water intake.

Once the electric toilet flushes and you stop pressing the on-off switch, a small amount of water remains in the bowl - just like a conventional house toilet.

Something foreign might have fallen in the bowl and got stuck in the impeller, causing the motor to draw too much current and trip the circuit breaker. Take off the motor and clean out the debri., and reset the circuit breaker. Good Luck.
