It has always been a taboo to talk about everything related to “going to the toilet”, and more on a boat. Have you ever experimented with a blockage in your toilet? If you had this experience and specially with guest on board, we may provide you with some tips to help you.
The golden rule :” The toilet is not a garbage bin”. It is prepared only for the “elements of nature”. It seems obvious, But the Dahlberg´s technicians have seen many blockages due to incorrect use of the toilet. (Are you ready to look real pictures?)
The main reasons for blockage in toilets are the use of excessive paper, use inappropriate toilet paper and feminine hygiene products. The marine toilet is not designed to support any of these objects
How can I prevent from blockage?
Professionals recommend the use of fast-dissolving paper. If you save on this product, you may increase the cost of maintaining in your marine toilet system. And of course, teach your gest how to use the toilet.
Is there a difference by using a household toilet paper instead of a special one for marine toilets?
Many household toilet papers contain adhesives. At home, we do not have problem with a lot of the papers we use, because are easily soluble due to the size of the pipes and on the amount of water on the discharge. At home, the pipe triples the size of the boat ones. Also, the amount of water is much more. In a boat sometimes is enough half litre. At home, we need between 6 and 20 litres approximately. That is why we should not use the same paper on the marine toilet.
