Dometic 972 portable toilet

Toilet: I chose the Dometic 972 portable toilet because of it’s relatively small dimensions. It will only be used on over-night trips: I use the hand bailer from an Optimist dinghy as a urinal (or more recently a 1 litre plastic jar)! What I hadn’t thought about was that the water tank for flushing weighs a few kg if full – so I use a bailer-full of sea water for flushing and the toilet simply acts as an holding tank without built-in flush. I’ve enlarged the openings into the “V berth storage lockers” and the toilet sits in the starboard one. That gives headroom and space for using it. It provides a useful seat for accessing the fridge.

N.B. : The opinions expressed are my own after a relatively short period of use; there may be ways around any problems identified. Other users will have different priorities!
