|The vanity is really starting to look
like...well..a vanity! Gena asked for some border with nice rounded
edges and the router and I obliged. As can be seen in the insets in the
photo below, a lot of plumbing is in order.
The system will be pressurized, like a house, except for the hand pumps that will be used if the pressure pump packs it in, or for when only squirts of water are needed with thoughts of conserving battery power.
|Some of the fittings are "RV" style as I call them. They don't fit anything you might put in your house. This became rather annoying while shopping for fittings that would provide a solution. The drain on the sink ended up being filed out and mixed and matched to other fittings. We found a hose fitting that would work with the hand pump, but had to cut and modify an elbow ( file down the threads some ) to mate with the "RV" bathtub drain. The electric macerator head (toilet) was actually the easiest to hook up believe it or not!|

and head are run along the bath tub and set in place with silicone as we
don't want any sagging.(left) Drainage on a sailboat requires some
thought. When healed over the water won't drain as it would be running
uphill. The head has a pump for this.
Problem is, some of the water would likely flush back into the tub causing a really gross situation!
|We planned for this with a
valve coming from the tubs' drain line. It will only be opened for
showers or draining the tub.
The above right photo shows the cool switch panel for the head.
Now I must find the longest drawer slides on earth to make use of the immense depth on that side!
I did it! My desk/studio! The seat is for test purposes only...
