Dear WhiteLight (and others who replied)
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with an actual CT intallation & daily use!
I am glad to hear it wasn't unpleasant on a boat ... although disappointed about the TP issue. Oh well ... just like visiting Mexico ... daily
At least we know what to expect.
We are leaning toward a marine model due to the smaller footprint ... if we had more space we might go electric Biolet.
To the posters who wrote about Greywater systems in Cali, you are correct that a PERMITTED greywater system is as much trouble as full septic. Local folks have a long & proud tradition of ignoring the government whenever possible and we intend to preserve our cultural heritage by continuing that tradition.
thank you all,
I will let you know how it goes in 3-6 months when we are (god-willing) done with the restoration.
