Sealand MSD Sanipottie are completely self-contained portable toilets that can be installed for direct overboard discharge where legal. Ideal for dockside pump out, or for discharge into remote holding tanks.
Each Sanipottie toilet can hold 3.2 gallons of fresh water supply, and 2.8 or 5.0 gallon holding tanks, enough for about 30-50 uses. High density polyethylene construction provides strength and toughness while easy to clean. Adult size seat and lid provide comfort with side latches that lock firmly in place for added safety.

I see this comes with hose fittings for pump out. Does it come with the actual hose part that is inside the holding tank that goes from the back of the tank to near the bottom of the holding tank? Or is that part sold separate?
It comes with a fitting that will go from tank to the hose, but not the actually hose
Mine was a complete set with everything I needed. Very satisfied.
Yes. The discharge hose in the tank is included. Anything outside of the toilet is not included.
If you are talking about the part inside the toilet holding tank. the answer is yes. I believe it also has the fitting that the hose for the pump out fits on.
Is the MSD (pump) version capable of being poured out as well?
Yes no problems
Thank you for the quick response.
Yes. Disconnect both hoses, be sure the holding tank handle is in the closed position and carry to a proper disposal point like a toilet. I did not find this to be a hassle. It is suggested though, that you do this when the holding tank is not very full.
Yes, They can be used either way. That is why we install them in most of our sailboats. In our neck of the woods a pump out is about $25 per. It is easier to pull the tank and dump it in a park outhouse.
Thank you for the information.
YES, IF YOU DON'T MIND DISCONNECTING HOSE'S TO EMPTY.OR YOU CAN CAP ALL YOUR INTAKE & OUTLET CONNECTIONS AND EMPTY ON THE GO.WE LOVE THIS SANIPOTTIE EASY TO USE, FILL AND CLEAN.
Yes. It can be plumbed in or it can be used as a stand alone unit that can be dumped out.
Does the hose for dockside pump out come out of the back of the toilet?
Yes they do. They are located in the bottom (storage) tank. The toilet can be used either way. That is to say it can be self contained or plumbed as a pump out toilet.
I know these can be piped to a deck fitting for standard Marina pump out stations. If I find that the capacity is too small on the unit itself, could I pipe the sanipottie to a separate additional holding tank and then from the new tank on to the pump out bill fitting?
cant answer for sure on that. sorry
Should work with mancerator pump inline.
I would think that you would have to add a pump to pump into the holding tank. If I was going to install a holding tank I would use a real marine head.
how it Works. how to clean it?
It may be hard to believe, but we have never used the Santipottie toilet. It was installed, looks terrific and it was a very thoughtful selection. However, our cruising has been very limited since it was installed. I can't. Provide the information you need.
Works great love it easy to clean w winded
It works by using fresh water from the top tank to "flush" waster into the lower holding tank. You clean it by simply emptying the lower tank into an appropriate waste disposal system...toilet, pump out tank, pit toilet, etc. Once empty, you can rinse it with fresh water and add holding tank deodorant.
To use this as direct discharge, is it needed a macerator?Thanks..
This unit is not designed for direct discharge.It can be plumbed with a deck pump-out fitting or carried off the boat for dumping only.Hope that helps.
We can not direct discharge where we boat. I have only pumped it out at pump out stations. I would think that it should work fine with a macerator and one would be needed to direct discharge.
I don't think it is for direct discharge. US Coast Guard regs. might answer that question (maybe a three mile limit). The main function is to either use as a self contained unit or for a deck pump out unit. The unit we purchased went into a customer's Oday 26 with a deck pump out which he did not want (local marina charged $25 per pump out) and it is being used as a stand alone unit. It is an easy release and carry off the dock to a public dump station.
How does the flushing system operate - batteries, a pump, bellows?We're planning to use this on a boat and it would only be used occassionally. We think the 2.5 gal. size is fine. Is there another advantage to the 5 gal size other than capacity?
I purchased this product because it was a replacement for an exact duplicate I had in the head on board my 240 Sundancer. The flushing system is a bellows. A difference between the 5 gal. size and the 2.5 gal. size involves the total height of the unit. If you have a height restriction the smaller 2.5 gal. might be a better fit for your application.
The big advantage with this unit is that it can be plumbed to be pumped out from the out side of the boat like a marine holding tank. The plumbing cost about $50 to $60.Fred P.
Hand operated bellow pump flushes water through the bowl.Capacity is the only advantage, they are otherwise exactly the same. I find the 5 gal capacity Sanipottie too tall to fit in the space beneath my sailboat's V-birth.Hope this helps.
The flushing system is a bellow hand pump. I have the larger one on my boat and it has an outlet in the back to empty the contents at the dock without removing the unit, provided they have a suction hose for that purpose. I don't know if the 2 gal unit has that or not.
How do you empty the holding tank?
I have dockside pumpout, but you can very easily lift it and there's a cap on the back where you can open it, and empty it.
The tank can be plumbed and pumped out like any marine holding tank or the lower half can be dumped like a port-a-potty. It looks like it will be the best of both worlds.Fred................
I would buy this product again
easy to install, works fine, nice size for cuddy cabin, walk around type boat.
simple and easy. just what i needed.
replaced old toilet on boat with this new one in no time at all.
