When it comes to choosing a marine toilet system we know that you have many choices. While Raritan used to dominate the original equipment list on most boats we saw a shift in the early 90’s to vacuum toilets. The tide has begun to turn and the realization that there are many choices in the market make it difficult for consumers to decide on what brand they would like. Ironically many boat owners do not even know what brand of marine toilet they have on their boat. Since the late 1950’s Raritan has been designing and selling products that withstand the test of time and hold up to a variety of uses. Many types of boaters exist and meeting the needs of all has always been one of Raritan’s goals.
When deciding on a marine toilet there are many factors to consider. Some prefer to not use any electric power and the only choice would be a manual marine toilet. Raritan was the first to introduce a manual marine toilet that uses pressurized fresh water. For years the only option in manual marine toilets was to use outside raw water. The disadvantage to that is that with most raw water applications comes a rotten egg smell each time you flush the toilet after being gone from the boat for any period of time. While there is no longer a huge market for manual toilets Raritan still saw the need and decided to produce a toilet for those customers that want to be able to flush with pressurized fresh water and have a manual toilet.
