How SeaSmart Works
SeaSmart uses modern technology to ensure that precise and accurate doses of liquid biodegradable disinfectant are injected right at the start of the sanitation hose, by the seacock. This is achieved without any cutting or drilling of the hose or fittings and there are no connections below the waterline*.
SeaSmart uses microprocessor technology to adapt the disinfectant quantities dispensed to the usage of the toilet.
The attractive SeaSmart unit is usually installed next to the toilet and contains a disinfectant container, a disinfectant pump, a microprocessor and a battery. It is neatly connected to a flow switch mounted by the toilet. It can also be installed into the inlet sanitation hose anywhere it is accessable between the seacock and the flush pump (for example in a cupboard under a sink).
When the toilet is flushed the flow switch sends an electronic signal to the microprocessor and the disinfectant pump supplies a measured dose of disinfectant right to the start of the sanitation hose which then passes throughout the whole toilet plumbing system every time it is flushed.
The SeaSmart has discrete led indictors which tell you that the unit is working with each flush and when to change the battery or the refill. Refill replacement is quick and simple.
SeaSmart has other important features. If the craft is left unused for a period of time and the toilet isn’t flushed, it’s possible for the odours to build up again. So the microprocessor goes into “maintenance cycle” after 3 days and automatically runs the disinfectant pump to inject a little more disinfectant into the inlet sanitation hose every 3 days, keeping the water sanitized and odour free.
Heavy Usage Mode
On certain occasions a craft may be subject to long continuous usage, such as a long voyage with a full crew on board. On these occasions a toilet could be subject to heavy usage of 50 or more flushes per day, which would exhaust the disinfectant container quite quickly.
In these circumstances less disinfection to the system is necessary so the microprocessor registers the high usage and halves the amount of disinfectant dispensed with each flush. This allows the disinfectant refill to last longer before replacement.
*Where a marine toilet is itself installed below the waterline, it is still quick and simple to install SeaSmart.
