Composting toilets do not actually compost anything. These toilets desiccate the waste, which simply means they dry or dehydrate it. As used on a boat, a composting toilet separates liquid from solid waste to keep the solids dry.
Toilets on boats are called MSDs (marine sanitation devices) by the Coast Guard. Nearly all recreational vessels have Type III MSD. The Coast Guard does not certify or approve Type III MSDs.
- Simpler and Easier to Troubleshoot - Keeps Waste in a Less Vile Form - Go Longer Without Pump Outs/Servicing - Fewer Holes in your Boat
- Larger and Taller than Regular Boat Toilets - Getting Compost Medium - Harder to Clean - Diverter Doesn’t Always Work - Bugs
