Amps are misleading. Watts consumed per flush cycle would be a better measure of electrical consumption. I have 2 Vacuflush systems(which I'm very happy with) and am pretty sure that the vacuum generator will run much longer than the macerator pump on the Raritan. The amp draw is probably irrelevant for both as the power consumption is likely under 1 watt per flush (This assumes a 15 second flush on a system that draw 10 amps at 12 volts [120 watts] per hour).
