Marine toilet flushes wet or dry, manual or electric

Rariton Toilet

Apr 12, 2023

Raritan Engineering’s first product was a simple toilet named the PH. Designed for recreational boating, it was so reliable it was chosen by the US Navy for use on its vessels. Over the years, it has gone through numerous updates, but today’s PH SuperFlush remains one of the most dependable manual marine toilets on the market. Its beefy piston pump and clog-resistant joker valve marry dependable operation into a stylish and comfortable design. Plus, a Conversion Kit enables adding electric flush functionality that can revert back to manual whenever needed.

What separates the Raritan PH SuperFlush from similar marine toilets is the massive double-action piston pump; it’s a full 66% larger than competing models. Not only does the bowl clear faster but it does so with fewer strokes. A unique air vent on the front of the unit allows the toilet to flush without bringing in additional water, ideal for draining the bowl in rough seas. A full-size 1-1/2″ joker valve virtually eliminates clogging.

Made in the USA, the gleaming white Raritan PH SuperFlush is offered in two sizes. The Marine model’s bowl measures 13″ H x 17-3/4″ W x 17-1/4″ D while the Household version is 13-1/8″ H x 18-1/4″ W x 20″ D.

The seat of the PH SuperFlush has integrated tabs to reduce movement when the boat is underway. A slow-close lid ensures a peaceful night’s sleep for crewmates.
Ideal for OEM and refit alike, the PH SuperFlush has an industry-standard mounting footprint. The pump can be oriented on either the left or right side. To accommodate the tightest head locations, the space-saving handle retracts. The toilet has a maximum lift of 4′ with a discharge loop height of 15″.

The Raritan 12V Electric Conversion Kit for electric flushing can be added after the toilet has been installed, in a choice of 12VDC or 24VDC, drawing 15A and 8A, respectively. Once powered, the toilet’s gearbox operation is smooth, quiet and trouble-free.

The Raritan Marine size PH SuperFlush costs $699; the Household version is $690. The 12V Electric Conversion Kit P105E12 is $380.

For over 60 years, generations have relied on Raritan quality and durability. Renowned for its extensive range of marine sanitation equipment, it also manufactures ice makers, water heaters and related components.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
