I didn't know that there were toilets of this type available for land vehicle .. but my father-in-law owned a boat that had this type of toilet.

It's output, after treatment had been applied, was allowed directly into Puget Sound. As I remember it drew a very large amount of current when it was doing a treatment. It was the only toilet that could be legally dumped into the sound.

I don't recall any special accoutrements required by using this toilet .. Marine (RV) paper and an odor chemical.

Thanks for posting this .. I will follow the posts to see what other have to say.

Kindest Regards
Cam

Never had one or know of anyone who has, but they are available from some of the RV supply stores. Maybe someone else has some more info?



Happy Trails.

Wow! A Newbie gets to reply to a question! I have been a boater for a long time and have actually owned a Lectra San(brand) head. It uses a high current to 'process' waste, then dump it overboard. It's a real battery killer, and requires a major charging system. I suspect this is what CamToo(did I get that right?) is thinking of.

I have heard that the true incinerating type heads emit a horrible odor at the 'smoke stack'. They are available, but pricey.

Some thirty years ago there was a version available for motorhomes that used the exhaust system as the incenerating mode. Never had one, nor had the opportunity to actually talk to anyone who owned one. They seemed to work according to mag articles, but apparently disappeared for some reason. With the added head of current exhaust systems they should work even better. May not be just the green crowd that would have problems with emissions though.

Colette and Joe: I suggest that you go to fhe following web site for an excellent and detailed article describing the installation and use of this toilet/sewage system: www.phrannie.org. I recommend this web site for all who are interested in the electrical, mechanical and plumbing aspects of their coach. oRV

The type of equipment that "fortytwo" I think was referring to, was made by a company called Thermosan - this device was installed on at least some GMC motorhomes - I don't think anyone is still making such a device, except perhaps NASA - I can understand why they might do it - I've actually spoken with people who had them, and to a person, they loved them - I'm assuming they are the ones that didn't have any trouble with them - No one I spoke with said anything other than that the tail pipe needed to be stainless steel from the point the Thermosan unit entered the pipe and from there to the end - no idea, if today, the EPA might object to such a unit, but there are plenty of waste incinerators in use today for all sorts of things - there is some discussion on some people either making this type of unit (macerator and small feed tank) but I meant that I don't know if such a unit is still being commercially product in the states
