Poopin Question

We decided to do our renovation in 3 or 4 different phases. Our first phase was the gutting and re-assmbly from the front to the to the front of the bath. Long story short we tore all of our plumbing out of the galley up to the bath. The bath rebuild is our next step including all of the plumbing.
My question is "Can we still use the toilet if we add water to the flush?".


Oh, it's a 1973 Safari.

Sure you can...Water is water regardless of the source. You can use a bucket to fill the bowl if you're so inclined.

Our toilet valve frooze last year so I bypassed it and mounted a ball valve to the wall and ran the line to the toilet inlet. Not fancy but it worked in a pinch.

Why are you working from front to back, instead of back to front? Just curious.

I started patching the bad spots but I found termites under and around my water tank so I decided to rip out the floor. I made it to the wall in front the bathroom and kinda ran out of time for our annual tip to Arkansas. I still have to install my grey tank which will require me to work in reverse a little but were camping!
