The United States Navy asked Moose Boats, a manufacturer of vessels for law enforcement, port security, fire and rescue, and the military, to explore a more sophisticated, plumbed solution to their existing portable heads requiring manual discharge.
• Smaller patrol vessels like Moose Boats typically have limited capacity for a toilet system with holding tank.
• Exceptionally small head space.
• Moose Boats patrol in demanding environments, requiring rugged and durable equipment.
Dometic’s VacuFlush technology was chosen because of its superior performance, and for the value it adds to the reputation of a manufacturer whose success depends on the reliability of its boats and all on-board systems.
“Dometic’s VacuFlush toilet systems have proven to offer exceptional functionality aboard, complementing our vessels perfectly,” said Abbie Walther, VP of Moose Boats.
• VacuFlush provides far more functionality than competing low-cost systems while offering long-term benefits such as the reduction of odors and greater flushing capacity.
• Exceptionally low water consumption (1 pint per flush).
• Pedal-operated toilet draws a mere 5 amps per flush.
• Dometic offers a wealth of experience and specialized know-how to the marine market.
VacuFlush Low-Water Use Tech Tip
“VacuFlush water consumption is less than one gallon per person per day, allowing more days of usage between pump-outs,” says Nelson Frolund, sanitation applications engineer for Dometic. “This also allows the use of fresh water for flushing, thereby eliminating the sulfurous odor often associated with microbe-laden seawater.”
