how much is reasonable to spend on a toilet? obviously you want the biggest, yet cheapest, whitworths has the tmc large bowl electric for 339 but i always thought whitworths was exxy? are tmc a good brand ? also does anyone actually have all the seperate storage tanks for waste or are these just a waste of money?

I picked up my electric TMC through Peter Snell at a very good rate.

Anyone had any "experience " with the composting type toilets like 'Air Head' or 'Sunmar'.

Has anybody had any history with the Dometic VacuFlush Toilet Systems? I am looking at the Dometic Vacuum Toilet with removable cassette, 14 liter. The theory sounds good, when full slide the cassett out of it's docking station and empty it, either over the side or down a marina toilet. It is fitted with a dry break coupling so there should be no mess, and uses only 600ml of fresh water per flush (I am fitting a desalinator). They retail for $1540 to $2270 depending on the type of seat/bowl.

I can't post a web address yet but type northcoach into google and check it out.

Can i throw this one open to the panel:



I have a TMC electric toilet, the base it will sit on is 80mm under the water line, the bowel is about 120mm above the water line, the pump underneath is about on the water line.



Do i need a vented loop on the inlet and outlet or just the outlet. Two marine shops i have been to gave two different answers? the instructions seem to show no vented loop on the inlet wether it is above or below the water line.



Confused :roll:

The bowl should only be able to fill to the outside waterline by syphoning. So you shouldn't need a vented loop. I think.

for those in the know how do you get your bowl to empty if you have an electric pump do you have to put a tap in the line and turn off the seawater intake to drain it? or does this kill the pump?

It is common practice to have a tap on all water inlets below the waterline otherwise repairs can get a little wet.
