    Electric Head... a little gross-gctid354477

    My 12 yr. old son is not allowed to use our manual flush head because he clogs the bowl at home - the kid clearly needs more fiber in his diet. :livid:

    Now, if I get a boat with an electric flush, do I need to be concerned with him "clogging" the bowl?

    Sounds like he should be in a logging camp, not in a boat

        OMG... lmao.. sounds like the 2 boys we have here.. you hafta teach him to plunge... FASTER. We told the boys here, flush mid point and keep flushing as long as he is umm doing the deed, and good lord if its a lincoln log, pinch the sucker off.. lol. Our boys have no issues using our manual crank toilet on the boat. Its just the house we have issues.. I seem to be the:worth pro poopy clog fixer.. ohhhhhhhh yaaaa for me.. :livid:

          Hard to say but electric heads have a macerator in them that essentially chops everything up before sending on to the holding tank. I would expect an electric head to be less prone to clogging than a manual head.

              It's pretty hard to clog an electric head with macerator as part of the discharge pump.

              The Raritan sea-era is pretty hard to beat.

                As for at home, try a toilet with a sloan flushmate. We had the same issue with our son when he was young.

                You cannot clog a sloan flushmate.

                  Feed him a few prunes before a day on the boat.

                    yeah, so are the boys here ages 13,14.. they bring a new meaning to filling up the bowl. Our manual boat toilets tolerate 3 male tushies, and its a known fact men poop more then women do..:worth

                    or get a 5 gallon bucket with a trash bag and put his name on it.. lol Good Luck

                      More schitt humor! One of our boys dropped a deuce in the RV toilet that wouldn't go down the 3 inch diameter opening until it was broken into pieces... Back on topic, as posted already, the macerator on the discharge side of the toilet will chop things up nicely and send them to the tank. You may still have to disintegrate the load to get it to the chopper though...

                        Not with a good, powerful one. Believe me, I am a meatatarian and have been known to save up a real doozy after a weekend of meat, whisky, and beer. It always goes down fast in this toilet:

                          You need to upgrade to the "whale gulper" macerator and you'll be all good!
