The discharge of marine toilets (”black water”) and of sinks
and showers (”grey water”) directly overboard in yacht harbors or other
sheltered water is more and more restricted nowadays. In order to overcome
this problem and yet fully comply with the rules, Vetus has developed a
system for temporary onboard storage of waste water. This waste can then
be discharged overboard while sailing in open water or, preferably, pumped
into a holding tank or sewer at a convenient point ashore. These tanks may
be installed in existing craft relatively simply, without the necessity
to replace the marine toilet.
Due to the special odor impermeable material used and to
the thick wall construction, these Vetus waste water tanks are designed
for the temporary storage of ”black water” (toilet waste). The waste water
tank will need an inlet connection for each toilet, shower, wash basin etc.
A connection kit
sanitary hoses and angled connectors for inlet tank ventilation in various
diameters may be ordered separately to suit your requirements.
Please note that to prevent unpleasant odors, we recommend
the use of separate tanks for ”black water” and ”grey water” waste. When
a marine toilet is connected to the tank the use of Vetus odor tight sanitation
hose is an absolute must. Other accessories such as deck plates, extraction
pipes, hoses etc. may be ordered separately as required.
The 23.2, 36, 45, 56.8, 88.5, and 103 gallon models are
provided with baffles as a standard construction element.
NOTE: Tanks DO NOT come with fittings.
Waste tanks require an
of an appropriate length for emptying.
