Thread: GC owners with the toilet plumbed through the keel

    Default GC owners with the toilet plumbed through the keel

    Sorry to post GC here but imdont think anyone really monitors their thread anymore.

    Has any had problems with or heard of problems with the glacier craft toilet set up? There is a 3" hole through the bottom of the boat with a nipple welded on in the bulkhead. Then a 3" ball valve (quareter turn) screws on and plumbs directly into a toilet above it. A toilet with a tank. So the thought is when on step the the ball valve is opened and the waste is sucked out. I am a little leary to have a 3" hole in the boat especially plumbed to the toilet. I heard it is a great set up but i want to confirm any long term GC owners havent had any major issues or very Sh***y moments before I complete my GC.

    Pm me or reply here

    You should have a pipe welded to the hole that comes up above the water line much like the one for your wash down pump. I'll send you a pm.

    Never had an issue with mine but I don't drive around with the valve open. Works great.

    I have an hatch in the floor of the head. One could, hypothetically speaking, reach down and open the valve. I can text you a pic if you would like.

    I have a small welded lip on the bottom of the hull in front of the thru hull. I can drive forward with the valve open no problems. I also recommend using silicone grease on the valve to keep it from seizing.
