Amen! What comes out of one end is a direct result of what's taken in--or isn't--at the other end.

It's also important to add water to the bowl ahead of solids...it reduces the amount of flush water needed and keeps the bowl a lot cleaner. If your toilet isn't designed to bring water in and hold it, use a cup from the sink...an idea that has never occurred to an amazing number of boat owners.

You guys must be old sailboaters and/or have manual heads. It seems to me that you're solving a problem that doesn't exist by creating another set of problems.

It's really very simple if you use the right TP.

Well I will admit to being old and a sailboater. I donít have any issues with my way except the ocational young female who wrap up the electric head macerator with a used towel. Iíll stay with my conservative approach but appreciate the Ďheads upí
