Excellent alternative to hand pump products, the SaniMARIN Comfort toilet is the perfect, simple answer to having an electric toilet on a boat, even when there is lack of space. The 31cm-high SFA macerator toilet is the smallest electrical toilet on the market!
On this model, the flushing mechanism is triggered with a two-position switch that lets you either rinse or grind/pump. The length of each cycle is therefore user-controlled, without the use of electronics.

How It Works:
SaniMARIN toilets combine a macerating pump and an electronically activated toilet into a single, compact package:
At the touch of a button on the control panel, waste is flushed down from the bowl into the macerating area situated below.
This area contains both a pump and a macerator. The latter is a turbine with stainless steel blades that swiftly grind the waste matter into fine particles in three to six seconds.
This matter is simultaneously pumped through a standard 1½-inch plastic pipe into a blackwater holding tank, which may be located above or below sea level, for eventual discharge. Thanks to their 10-foot pumping height and powerful horizontal pumping distance of 98 feet, SaniMARIN upflush toilets enable boat owners to locate the blackwater tank (or purification system) wherever desired on board.
Once the toilet bowl is completely emptied, the unit’s s-bend fills with water again. The water level in the bowl adjusts automatically at the end of each flush cycle to eliminate all risk of odors.
The SaniMARIN 31c has a control panel with two settings:
“Add Water,” the bowl-flush command; and
“Pump Out,” the macerate-and-empty command.
So the length of each cycle is user-controlled, without the use of electronics.
Installation can be adapted to suit any plumbing configuration and all types of boats. SaniMARIN models operate with either an on-board, pressurized, freshwater system; or with a raw-water system that requires a separate seawater pump.
