Macerator Toilet

Hi folks, its been a while we have a techma macerator toilet, it is a huge water waster. Before China flu we liked to dry camp at sprint boat races. That is a challenge with this toilet, and now the controll buttons are worn out , dont really want to replace them, has anyone replaced the electric toilet to foot pedal type, I know that means tapping into the top of the black tank hoping I will not be the first one to try this. any help much appreciated. Other items to do this year, fass lift pump and fuel pressure gauge.

I can imagine it would be a nightmare. I assume you turn the water pump off when boondocking?? I know they use a lot of water in any case.

You can get the buttons still. Perhaps carry more water.

I liked ours because you could adjust the water very low and dry flush.

Usually the Tecma is not over the tank. So you need a macerator. There is a new Tecma that does not use as much water. Still not like a drop toilet. Expensive

When we boondocked for more than a few days we would turn the water pump off to avoid accidently flushing with water when not needed.

Moisheh is right. Pedal toilets are placed directly over the black tank. The macerator toilets can be located anywhere in the coach and then the pump pushes the waste to the tank.
You can adjust the water level on a Techma toilet. See page 1 of the owners manual.

Or none if you turn the water pump off and only on when needed. You can still hit the flush button/buttons.

If you do it often why not hook up to be able to use gray water to flush?
A separate pump from gray tank to spray hose at toilet and a simple valve in fresh line will let you choose fresh or grey to flush.
Many dry campers are looking for ways to transfer geay to black... this seems like a perfect way if you are willing to do a little plumbing. Seems like it might be easier than cutting into black tank?

I am surprised a moderator has not deleted the first post. This is one forum where virus discussions are rare. The op was trolling .
.
It is not a flu and it does have a name. I will refrain from further comments. Please edit or delete that first post

Why are you trying to change the topic?
Surely your post has nothing to do with toilets!
