Should a sea toilet hold water in the bowl?

I assume it should but for some reason white ladys seeps away into the holding tank, if you switch over to the sea outlet it still seeps away. Thpught about putting an upwards pointing loop in the outlet pipe but cant get it in anywhere.

Any suggestions?

Our electric one does the same Ian.

But the best Electric Lavvy I have seen is on Tamara you have a menu of flushes; I kid you not.

This gives the option of leaving water in the bowl or not, I suppose water in the bowl is not a good idea on a heeling yacht.

Are you sure it is the WC you are looking at and not the washing machine Perry. :lol:

The toilet on Tamara has a U bend built in so seepage is not a problem. 8-)

Obviously could vary with make and model, but I have had this discussion and am told it should, and when it leaks away it's time to change the seals, not had the courage to tackle the job yet ( on a Mansfield dump thro) but am told it will ease the pong in the summer

Mine has an RM69 pump type sea toilet with a complete new seal set on, water leaks away in about 30 seconds. doesn't seem right to me as it makes it immensly inefficient at dealing with things that really ought to dealt with by a loo.
