No more worrying about smell and having to do pump outs. As it Always seemed to need emptying at the most in -opportune times.. IMO was worth the additional cost. Just have to remember to keep treatment tablets in the cartridge.


Can you use that anywhere but offshore? Most of our boating is in 'no discharge' zones, so (besides the price) it's a 'non-starter' for us.

You would have to check for you area, but here in Kentucky and Tennessee where I am they are legal for use. Now you can’t just run through a macerator and dump it overboard, it has to be through an approved treatment system.
