Product Description: Available in 12, 24 or 110 volts, this "traditional", full-size model offers the comforts of home even when you're at sea. Eco-friendly with a dual-flush mechanism.
Difference between SaniMARIN 48 (110v) and the standard SaniCOMPACT: While the SaniMARIN 48 and SaniCOMPACT are the exact same bowl and motor design, they have one key difference: the circuit board and all the parts of the SaniMARIN 48 are specially glazed and coated with "rust proof" chemicals which help prevent the rusting that would otherwise occur in the humid and moisture intense boat environment. That is why the SaniMARIN 48 unit is more expensive, as the rust proofing of all parts is manual and detailed work that is done as an additional last step on the SaniCOMPACT base model. So the SaniCOMPACT, while seemingly a little cheaper in the beginning, can simply not be used on boats as it's components will rust prematurely

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.
This model provides a dual-flush mechanism that sends only a small quantity of water to the holding tank: 0.31 gallons of water for the economical (“Eco”) cycle and 0.58 gallons for the normal cycle. The latter is adjustable to 0.79 gallons.
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.
