Dometic Marine: Custom-Made RushFlush Toilet is Supplied for New Viking Model

Dometic Marine has created a new version of its innovative Sealand® RushFlush™ toilet to suit the specific requirements of Viking Yachts.

The custom-made, residential-style version of the RushFlush toilet has been fitted into Viking’s new 62-foot model.

Following the successful collaboration, the renowned builders of luxury performance sport-fishing and cruising yachts will now be looking to expand its use of the RushFlush toilet into other future models.

The need for a different version of the toilet arose due to space restrictions in certain areas of the Viking 62.

Adam Baker, Regional Sales Manager at Dometic Marine, said: “Viking tested our RushFlush on their 70-ft demo boat last year and the trial process was a success. After the test, Viking spec’d our RushFlush toilet on their new 62 Convertible.

“Initially, we only had an elongated-profile version of the RushFlush, but the Viking 62 required a residential-style version on two of the heads due to space restrictions, while one head would use the original version.

“To accommodate their needs, we have created a new version of the RushFlush style which uses the 4600 flat-back bowl.”

Dometic Sealand’s RushFlush toilet series uses high-velocity water jets to macerate and flush waste, while also delivering easy plug-and-play installation and premium comfort.

Incorporating a pre-assembled integral trap-way and discharge loop, the RushFlush takes 50-75% less time to install compared with competing high-flow toilet systems. As with all non-mechanical macerating systems, risk of failure of the RushFlush is significantly reduced, while freshwater flushing capability eliminates plumbing system maintenance issues which are typically associated with raw/sea water systems.

The RushFlush toilet is a full-size, residential-style toilet with large, deep bowl and elongated seat, providing users with exceptional comfort. The toilet can be fitted with an electric handle or a wall-mounted touchpad for flushing.
