Ocean Link to Debut Revolutionary New Toilet at Main Boatbuilders Show
Portsmouth, RI: Ocean Link Inc., the “Marine Plumbing Specialists” of Portsmouth, Rhode Island will debut what the manufacturer calls “The Perfect Toilet” at the Maine Boatbuilders Show taking place in Portland on March 15 – 17. This will be the first time the “Go Anywhere” Dry Flush toilet has been shown and demonstrated to New England boaters.
Many toilets claim to be odor free, but the Dry Flush unit truly is. This is made possible through the use of a specially designed and patented cassette that dispenses clean material into the bowl after every flush. The flush cycle encapsulates the waste material into an odor-tight pouch. The pouch is compacted into the bottom of a container within the toilet. After approximately 17 flushes, the cassette containing the pouches is easily removed and disposed of as diapers would be. All waste, both solid and liquid, is securely encased so the user never has contact with it.
Watch video to see how it works.
The fully portable Dry Flush unit looks and is used like a regular toilet. It is very lightweight, durable and uses no water or chemicals. It is powered by a battery cell which provides up to 300 flushes per charge. It can also be permanently affixed and wired in if desired.
Brian Paiva has worked at Ocean Link for five years. Before coming to us, he cut his teeth at Bristol Yachts for twelve years and then honed his skills at Ted Hood’s Little Harbor Yachts for ten more. We are pleased to have someone with such depth of experience on our crew.
“I am always super-confident when Brian is on a job, because I know he will come up with the best solution possible,” says Terri Cortvriend, Ocean Link owner.
We caught up with Brian while he was upgrading a sanitation system aboard a Talaria 43. The new equipment is a VacuFlush electric toilet system.
Brian maintains ABYC Certification in Marine Mechanical and Electrical Systems. He prides himself in always putting his customer’s needs first and putting forth his best effort on every job.
On weekends you can find Brian working on or drag racing his customized 2003 Dodge Dakota truck.
