Low flush-volume toilet saves onboard water

Rariton Low Flush Volume Toilet

Nov 21, 2022

Whether near the coast or far offshore, potable water is a precious resource on a boat. SeaEra QC Electric Macerating Toilets from Raritan Engineering help conserve this: they can flush using only a quart. An innovative SeaFresh option even enables operation with raw seawater.

Made in the USA, the SeaEra QC is available in two configurations. On the Remote Intake Pump version, the intake pump is installed away from the toilet for noise reduction, and easier access to the unit. The Freshwater Solenoid model uses the vessel’s pressurized water system and employs a vacuum break for WhisperFlush™ operation. Also, the SeaEra QC can further conserve onboard water supplies by adding the SeaFresh option, enabling changing to raw seawater flushing with the flip of a switch.

Robust and reliable, the inlet pump will lift 4′ and the macerator will discharge up to 9′ vertical, 50′ horizontal. Most important, the intake pump can run dry without damage. The discharge fitting accepts either 1″ or 1-1/2″ straight lines, or 1-1/2″ with a 90° elbow, without the need for an adapter. A full-size joker valve helps avoid clogging.

SeaEra QC toilets come in two sizes: a household model that stands a full 14-7/8″ H x 20″ L with a 14-3/8″ W seat, or the slightly more compact marine version that’s 14-1/2″ H x 17-1/4″ L with a 13″ W seat. Both feature a small 14-1/4″ x 9-1/2″ base that rotates in 90° increments for oddly-shaped spaces that challenge other toilet installations. A video is at www.bit.ly/RaritanSeaEra.

The SeaEra QC offers multiple flush control options. Both the Smart Toilet Control and the Multifunction Flush Panel provide a wide range of choices to add or remove water from the bowl. The Momentary Flush Switch is a simple, economical alternative. Available in 12V, 24V or 32V DC or 120/240V AC.
