Flush header

Now Lady Jane is back in the middle of the River Itchen, conservation of the boat's fresh water supply is a keen issue.

Flush headerHere you see the header tank I set-up some time ago to provide flushing water for the throne. The biggest user of water on board by far.

All I need do is fill this with seawater from time to time, using one of the pumps I have on board.

This was the easiest, and least expensive, way of providing a saltwater flush system and thus saving fresh water on board.

If I want to I can easily switch back to the freshwater flush system, and use the boats pressurised fresh water supply, once I'm alongside some place.

So far, it has worked out surprisingly well.
