I'm considering using manual water pumps in the renovation my of Scamp
16 as a method of reducing water use for dry camping
. Additionally the water pump cycling really bothers me when we just open the tap a little bit (which we always do). I also don't want to pay for a fancy variable pressure/volume water pump.
Using one for the sink seems simple enough. The toilet on the other hand seems a little trickier.
I'm not sure if there is a reasonable way to use a manual foot pump for flushing Sealand traveler toilet. I haven't installed or bought the toilet yet so I have zero hands on experience with it. From what I've read it seems the foot flush on the toilet simply opens the supply line to the toilet when lifted up, and opens the flush valve and water supply when pushed down. A two foot flushing operation doesn't seem very ideal, one to open the fresh water valve and another pump the water through it....
Any ideas or should I just stick with simple straight forward electric pump?
