pleasant sulfide odors which plague saltwater systems.
Flush water is no longer drawn through the through-hull
fittings, seacock, and vented loop.  It also extends the
life of the system components by eliminating salt water

The Vacu-flush® toilet operates in a different way from
other marine toilets. Vacu-flush® systems use a small
amount of water (a little more  than a pint) per flush in
addition to a simple vacuum. The toilet is connected to
the fresh water system.   Fresh water is the  key to an
odor free bathroom compartment.  Vacu-flush® toilets
are equipped with an intergrade vacuum breaker which
prevents the possible contamination of the potable/fresh
water supply. See Figures J12 & J13.  Also refer to the
manufacturer’s literature included in the owner’s packet.
