Pressure flush toilets

Hi there, DW and I had heard about a 'Pressure flush' RV toilet, but we aren't really sure where to look for such an item. It supposedly does a better job of rinsing the toilet and ensuring that everything discharges correctly. Does anyone know of a product like this? Do you or have you had such an item? What do you think about it?

Thanks! Eric and Carol Anderson

I haven't seen one in an RV.... we have them in our house- had them for many years and they do a great job. In the RV we have a macerator toilet.. it does a good job, but uses more water than the old 'dump' style, but there are area the old style won't work due to location of the bath and the black tank.

We put this one in our rig but I only paid $450 for it. It takes up more room than a foot pedal design. There are other ones out there. We like it alot and I no longer have to deal with poop mountain under the discharge hole. It uses more water than a pedal toilet during the flush. However if you take into consideration the amount of water you use clearing the pedal toilet then the water is the same. It is noisey. Push the button and done.

You may want to goggle Vacuflush toilets.

They use suction, like airliners, to evacuate the bowl. They use very little water. It needs to be installed as a system and not as a replacement to a regular RV toilet.

There is a bit of a learning curve with some models, but once mastered, they work good.

People often use the term pressure / vacuum/ macerator toilet for the same thing. (I'll leave the discussion of the technical to others) When multiple toilets grew in popularity the manufacturers had to commonly deal with moving the output further to the black tank so they needed more than simple gravity. Look up Thetford Tecma as an example, it's a pretty common one.

We have two Thetford Tecmas. They are electric with macerators. Both work fine, but use lots of water.

but you really dont need that.. if you know whats coming then put a gallon in the bowl with the water step and should be just fine.. also the china bowls do better job of circle rinse.

We just got rid of our 2016 Bounder and mainly because of the pressure flush toilet. It plugged up the first trip out and that just ain`t no fun. Tried the Macerator Toilet in our 2009 Dynasty and that required a $500 service call.. Remember the KISS PRINCIPAL ??? Keep It Simple Stupid !!!!! Just add more H2O to your fine quality porcelain drop flush toilet and feel grateful that yer stuff just drops out of site with every push a the peddle.

There's a lot to be said for that.

Like Cat320 said, the Tecma toilet works well & fills the black tank quickly. I have 2 of them and it would be nice to have one regular RV porcelain toilet for dry camping.

Sealand used to sell a Vacuflush RV & Marine toilet.

THIS company had them for sale.

I believe most RV's are now coming with either a manual foot pedal toilet, an electric flush gravity toilet or an electric macerator toilet.

I have an older Sealand Magnum Opus electric gravity toilet and have had zero problems with it, Knock-Knock.
