Responding to market demand for space-saving toilets, Thetford Marine introduces the Nano and Compass Short models to its extensive Tecma lineup. In addition to fitting in highly-confined spaces, the pair boast the superior quality, technology and comfort level that boaters have come to expect from this industry leader.
Guests will appreciate the simplicity of operation that the new Nano and Compass Short provide. Owners will value that these toilets are virtually maintenance-free, provide quiet and fast flush cycles with odor-free use, and come with control panels that allow for water conservation. Both toilets are available in 12 or 24V models and install easily.
The extra-low-profile Nano is ideal for the tightest of spaces. Elegant in design and remarkably efficient, the toilet is built of high-quality white ceramic that lends itself to any marine décor. Operation is virtually silent.
This unit is completely self-contained with a clog-resistant turbine; during installation, there is no need to accommodate a vacuum pump or replace gaskets or seals. Its low power consumption and user-controlled water flow of only 0.1–0.7 gallons per flush will save precious on-board resources. Less than 39 pounds, the Nano is only 18.2″ L x 14.8″ W x
11.8″ H and easily installed on a step base.
With its sleek, modern design and advanced technology, the Compass Short is an alternative version of Thetford’s popular EasyFit toilet. Crafted of superior white ceramic to the highest standards, it features a strong but nearly soundless macerator and reliable, odor-free operation. As versatile as it is elegant, the Compass Short can be installed against a flat or angled wall surface.
Highly efficient, the unit has a low electricity draw. Like the Nano, it needs only 0.1-0.7 gallons of water per flush, easily changed by the user via the control panel. The Compass Short is a mere 19.1″ L x 14.4″ W x 14.4″ H and weighs 56 pounds.
