Having a head (bathroom) on a boat is a total joy but pumping out isn’t necessary so much fun – especially if you don’t use the right type of toilet paper.
By their very nature, heads on boats are passive – that means that waste goes into a holding tank where it will remain until you reach a pump out station. Rapid dissolve toilet tissue does what it says – it dissolves so that, when you pump out, there will not be a mass of toilet tissue in the bottom of the tank clogging things up.
Rapid dissolve toilet tissue is suitable not only for boats, but also works quite well in homes with septic systems or in RVs or during any type of camping trip.

And, while we’re at it, it’s a good idea to throw one of these holding tank deodorizers down the toilet every time you pump out. Without going into details, you’ll be glad you did. We personally prefer the little packets that you just drop in, but there’s a liquid also (note: we haven’t tried the liquids but they got good reviews on Amazon.com).
