The toilet flushes
At last, I've got a flushing toilet on board Lady Jane.
Now I've not really minded having to get a bucket of seawater every time I've needed to flush the loo, but apparently some people don't really enjoy this particular chore.
The picture shows me in the heads, cutting away the last of the previous, and long defunct, flushing system which relied on seawater pumped by the main engine.
While the toilet flushes, I've still to complete the plumbing job, as I was mising a vital 90 degree bend for the water feed to the cistern. Hopefully this won't be to much of a task.
I am, however, now very aware of just how much water a flush consumes.
