Thetford Marine’s Tips for Head Maintenance

Aqua Soft Tissue


A common misconception is that all toilet papers are alike. In a marine sanitation system, household products tend to clump and obstruct. Boaters find the solution to clogged heads in Thetford’s 100% rapid-breakdown tissue. It begins to dissolve almost as soon as it’s flushed. 

Aqua-Soft® Toilet Tissue is made specifically for marine sanitation systems. It features two luxurious plies of soft, highly absorbent paper. Quick to dissolve, it’s the perfect choice when duplicating the gentle qualities of a home tissue and comes 396 sheets per roll.

The company’s RV/Marine Toilet Tissue is single ply. It’s ideal for fully manual heads due to its fast breakdown. Soft, yet strong, it’s an economical alternative and comes 350 sheets per roll.

Another benefit to using a top-quality tissue comes when it’s time to pump out the holding tank. No clumps ensure a fast and thorough job. Adding Thetford’s Aqua-Kem® Marine rapidly liquefies waste. The tank deodorant is available in liquid form, as well as ultra-convenient Toss-Ins™ single dose packets.

As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
