Marine Toilet System Routing Options - Jabsco

Marine toilet systems have been a great invention and have come a long way since. Jabsco along with many other manufacturers have done a great amount of improvement on ergonomic features and engineering along with functionality to improve usage and durability.

Since the systems are continuously advancing it is crucial to still realize and understand the importance of keeping the environment clean and free from waste by disposing of waste properly.

Even though there is no internationally accepted legislation to guide us on how to deal with the waste from our toilet systems here is a guide to help educate about proper procedure.

The Guide discusses the four most common ways of dealing with toilet waste. It is important to note that your choice of system may be governed by your own national and local rules and regulations.

Option 1:

Discharge waste through a Y-valve directly into a non-restricted area or to a holding tank when within the three mile limit using the toilet's own pump and an anti-syphon loop.

Option 2:

Collect waste in an on-board holding tank so that it can be discharged later when you are in un-restricted waters using an electric or manual pump.

Option 3:

Collect waste in an on-board holding tank for discharge later to a Shore Station using a dockside suction pump or portable utility pump.

Option 4:

A combination of Option 2 and 3 to give you the flexibility of discharging waste wherever most convenient and without risk to the environment.
