before another flush cycle can be initiated. A full holding tank will also prevent the toilet from flushing.
3. Selecting Automatic Water Refill Levels:
The Water Level switch is located under the access cover. Carefully lift up on the front of the cover to access the
Water Level switch. There are three water refill levels available. The microprocessor-controlled water valve will
refill the toilet bowl according to your water level selection.
To reinstall the access cover, set the cover on top of the
toilet and press down. This will lock the cover in place
and prevent it from coming loose during travel.
LOW Level
ACCESS COVER
CONTROL SWITCHES
Use this setting to conserve water. This position
reduces the chance of water splashing out of the bowl
during rough travel. If more water is needed for flushing,
lift up on the flush handle. Water flow will stop after
nine seconds to prevent overflow.
MID Level
Use this position to keep the toilet bowl clean, especially when family and friends may be using the toilet.
If more water is needed for flushing, raising the flush handle will provide up to six seconds of refill time.
HIGH Level
Use this position if the MID level does not provide a clean toilet bowl. This position is not recommended while
underway. If more water is still desirable for flushing, raising the flush handle will provide up to three seconds
of additional water refill time.
4. Mode Switch
The Mode switch is located on the right side of the control module. It switches between three function settings:
NORMAL
Use this setting for flushing the toilet.
SERVICE
Use this position for cleaning the toilet bowl and flush ball seal. The flush ball will open automatically and remain
open in this position. Lifting up the flush handle provides water.
MANUAL OVERRIDE
Use this position to flush the toilet manually in the event of power or battery failure. This switch disconnects the
electronic brake in the flush valve motor, and allows manual flushing via the override access hole in the side
of the vitreous china base.
Note: The control module allows 15 seconds of water for cleaning. If more water is required, return
the switch to the NORMAL position then back to the SERVICE position.
A safety circuit in the control module monitors flush ball operation. If foreign objects or low voltage prevent
the flush ball from closing, this circuit prevents personal injury or damage to the flush valve motor. If this
condition occurs, reset the control module by placing the Mode switch into the SERVICE position temporarily,
then returning it to the NORMAL position.

PROPER CLEANING – TOILET BOWL AND SEAL
The VacuFlush toilet should be cleaned regularly for maximum sanitation and
operational efficiency. You can clean it just as you would a household toilet.
Do not use caustic chemicals, such as drain-opening types, as they will damage
the seals.
BOWL CLEANING: For stubborn stains, use SeaLand Bowl and Seal Cleaner (Fig. A).
It’s manufactured especially for use with our VacuFlush toilets. In certain locations where
water is hard, a build-up of lime may dull the toilet bowl finish. Restore the shine with this
cleaner. If you cannot find our brand in your area, contact SeaLand Product Customer
Fig. A
Service for your nearest dealer. If it is not available, you can also use Bar Keepers Friend®
cleanser. It is not necessary to vigorously scrub with either product. Please follow label
instructions.
SEAL CLEANING: After an extended time, mineral deposits from hard water can build
up under the edge of the rubber bowl seal, resulting in a slow leakdown of water from the
bowl. To prevent this mineral build-up, periodically clean under the bowl seal with SeaLand
Bowl and Seal Cleaner (Fig. B).
1. Put Mode switch in SERVICE position. Flush ball will open automatically.
2. Apply cleanser onto the seal cleaning tool (supplied with new toilet), and scrub
under the seal. Make sure to push bristles between bottom of seal and top of flush
ball surface to scrub all parts of seal that come into contact with flush ball.
Fig. B
3. Wait 2-3 minutes.
4. Pull up on flush handle to let water flow into bowl. Use cleaning tool and water to rinse
away cleanser and loosened deposits. You can add water for up to 15 seconds in the SERVICE position.
5. Put Mode switch in NORMAL position. Water will flow for a few seconds, then flush ball will close automatically. Water will
continue flowing into bowl, making it ready for the next flush.
WINTERIZING
At the end of each season, the VacuFlush toilet system must be winterized for storage. The following procedure should be
used:
1. Pump out holding tank.
5. Flush freshwater antifreeze and water mixture through toilet
2. Thoroughly flush system with fresh water.

adequate protection.
6. Turn off electrical power.
CAUTION: The use of freshwater antifreeze that contains alcohol will result in damage to your
sanitation system. Only use propylene glycol freshwater antifreeze that does not contain alcohol.
4
CLEARING DISCHARGE LINES
Sanitation hoses should be cleared if toilet will not be needed for an extended period of time (more than two weeks).
1. Fill toilet bowl with water and add 4 oz. (120 ml) of biodegradable laundry detergent (should NOT contain bleach).
2. Flush toilet, holding pedal down for about two minutes. Close flush ball.
3. Turn off water supply to toilet.
4. Flush the toilet without water, allowing the vacuum pump to shut off after the flush. Repeat three times. (This procedure will minimize any remaining water in the sanitation hoses.)
5. Turn off power to the vacuum pump.
6. Completely pump out holding tank.
If system will be subjected to freezing temperatures, please follow above procedure, then winterize system as described
in this manual.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Maintenance intervals and normal parts replacement vary widely depending on numerous factors such as frequency
of system use, quality of flushing water, etc. The following chart is intended strictly as a general guide in keeping

SANITATION SYSTEM COMPONENTS
Vacuum Toilet: VacuFlush all-ceramic vacuum toilets with
Flush and Forget® technology operate differently compared
to other toilets. The vacuum system uses a small amount of
water (a little more than a pint or .5 liter) per flush in addition
to a simple vacuum. The toilet is connected to a pressurized
freshwater system. Fresh water is the key to an odor-free
bathroom compartment. Most VacuFlush toilets are
equipped with an integral vacuum breaker which prevents
the possible contamination of the freshwater supply.
Vacuum Toilets
Flush/Add Water Switches (3100, 3400 models only):
Wall-mounted push-button switches provide electronic
operation of flushing and adding water to the toilet bowl.
Models include two-light vacuum status panel indicating the
toilet is “OK to Flush” or “Do Not Flush”. Models vary.
Vacuum Generator: The vacuum generator combines
the vacuum tank and vacuum pump in one unit. It greatly
reduces installation time and eliminates the hose run
between the tank and pump. Their compact size makes them
especially well-suited to smaller installation spaces.
Vacuum Tank: The vacuum tank stores vacuum energy.
System vacuum level is monitored by a vacuum switch
located on the vacuum tank. When this switch senses
a drop in vacuum in the system, it automatically signals
the pump to energize and bring the vacuum to operating
level. This process is normally completed in less than one
minute.

Vacuum Pump: The vacuum pump is an electric,
straight-through bellows type. It is manufactured of longlasting polypropylene and draws only 4 to 6 amps of current
at 12 VDC. This unique pump design is both an efficient air
and liquid pump that handles solids without a problem. It
has two duckbill valves on each side of the pump chamber
to maintain vacuum and prevent backflow of waste.
“Tank Full” Shut-Down Switches (RV option only):
These “Tank Full” micro-float switches shut down the
vacuum generator when the waste holding tank is full.
We offer three styles to accommodate various installation
requirements.
Sealing grommet style – Item number 900101

SANITATION SYSTEM COMPONENTS (cont’d)
TankWatch® Level Indicator (marine option only):
The TankWatch unit utilizes micro-float switches which
activate an indicator panel. The micro-float switches are
installed in the top of the holding tank. The adjustable
probe assemblies are flexible polybutylene tubing and are
designed to flex when tank contents move.

VacuStat™ Indicator Panel: Continuously monitors vacuum status for proper toilet operation.
Brushed metallic finish complements bathroom
decor. Item number 700112 (12VDC).
Vacuum Status Panel (optional): A two-light status panel
indicates the system is “OK to Flush” or “Do Not Flush”.
The green “OK to Flush” light is illuminated when there is
adequate vacuum pressure available and when the holding
tank is less than full. Item number 710012.
VacuFlush Status Panel (optional): Includes two-light
status panel indicating the system is “OK to Flush” or “Do
Not Flush”, and circuit breaker to shut down system at night.
Item number 500012 (12 VDC) or 500024 (24 VDC).
Vacuum Generator Shut-down Relay (standard on RVs;
marine option): This relay can automatically shut down
power to the VacuFlush toilet system to prevent overfilling of the holding tank. Item number 310289 (12 VDC) or
310290 (24 VDC).
Vacuum Tester (optional): This tool assists in identifying
the location of vacuum leaks. The vacuum tester consists
of a vacuum gauge and a cone-shaped plug. Inserting the
plug in the inlet of the vacuum tank or vacuum generator
isolates the toilet from the system. In this way, a vacuum
leak can easily be located in either system. Item number
530002.
In-Line Vent Filter (marine option only): The SaniGardTM
vent filter has special odor-removing filter materials to help
keep your vehicle smelling clean and pleasant. Heavierthan-air malodors accumulate in the holding tank. This vent
filter has a special type of activated filter media to remove
these odors before they offend. Each cartridge is good for
an entire season, and is easily replaced for a fresh start.
Replacement cartridges are available.
Holding Tanks (marine option only – not shown):
SeaLand holding tanks are made of super-strong, 3/8”
(10mm) thick polyethylene — 50% thicker than most other
holding tanks. Each features solid, one-piece construction
with no seams for unmatched durability. A deodorant additive is recommended to keep the holding tank odor-free.
See Deodorants and Special Tissue section for further
information (page 8).

DEODORANTS AND SPECIAL TISSUE
Your VacuFlush toilet and sanitation system require the regular addition of a deodorant product to reduce malodors and
to help break down holding tank contents. Several factors should be considered in selecting a deodorant product.
Liquid or Dry: Liquid products obviously work more quickly by readily going into solution. Granulated powder
formulations, on the other hand, have the advantage of requiring less storage space and are less likely to leak if the
package is inadvertently damaged.
Formaldehyde versus Non-Formaldehyde: Dometic manufactures both types of deodorants. Generally,
formaldehyde formulas control odor very effectively at all temperatures and with all degrees of water hardness.
SeaLand® Environment-Friendly brand, which is formaldehyde free, is similarly effective.
How Much Deodorant and How to Add It: The deodorant is added directly into the toilet bowl, then flushed into
the holding tank. Follow bottle or package instructions. Conditions of extremely warm weather, longer waste holding time and larger tank capacities may require more deodorant treatment. Also, to maintain optimum efficiency in
odor control, the waste holding tank should be cleaned thoroughly at least once or more each season, depending
on use.
Why Not Use Household Toilet Paper in Your VacuFlush Toilet? Household tissues often contain adhesives
which bond together the paper fibers from which the tissue is made. The adhesives prevent the tissue from breaking
apart, and their use in “ultra-low flow” systems can cause system clogging. SeaLand tissue is especially designed
for use in low water toilet systems. Its rapid dissolving properties minimize the amount of residual paper in the holding tank and allow deodorizers to work more efficiently.
SeaLand versus Other Brands: SeaLand constantly strives to provide our system owners with effective products
that have minimal environmental impact and good value. Many deodorant products do not measure up to our
standards of performance and value.

MARINE SANITATION REGULATIONS
All boats with fixed toilets in U.S. waters and in the waters of some other countries are required to be equipped with an operable
marine sanitation device (MSD). The VacuFlush vacuum sanitation system, when installed in a boat, is a holding tank or Type
III system as defined by the U.S. Coast Guard. Type III systems are designed to permit operation of the toilet without the direct
discharge of untreated waste after every flush. This means onboard toilet facilities can be used when the boat is near swimmers,
beaches or shellfish beds.
Type III systems can be discharged at marina dockside pump-out stations or, if in coastal waters, a minimum of three miles
offshore. Overboard discharge capability must remain secured while within the three-mile limit. The overboard discharge
pump is activated by a keyed switch located in the toilet compartment. This key should be removed at all times except when
discharge pump is operating.
Sewage from any source should not be discharged directly into our waters. If you are interested in learning more about this issue,
please contact Dometic at the phone number or address listed on the back page of this manual.

TROUBLESHOOTING
A volt/ohmmeter (VOM) and the appropriate Toilet Wiring Diagram may be required for this section.
Caution: Portions of this section will require that power be applied to the toilet. Keep hands away from
the flush ball, motor drive arm and rotor shaft to prevent personal injury during testing and troubleshooting.
The control module uses a microprocessor to provide all the automatic and timing functions. The control module
is on the right side under the access cover on the top of the toilet. The control module has input and output status
lights that can be used in troubleshooting the toilet.
The program in the microprocessor monitors the input and output signals during a normal flush cycle. If the inputs
or outputs do not follow the commands of the program, then the microprocessor may go into a “standby” mode and
flash an “error code.” The microprocessor is reset by placing the Mode switch in the SERVICE position temporarily,
then returning the switch to the NORMAL position.
A safety circuit in the control module monitors flush ball operation. If foreign objects or low voltage prevent the flush
ball from closing, this circuit prevents personal injury or damage to the flush valve motor. If this condition occurs,
reset the control module by placing the Mode switch into the SERVICE position temporarily, then returning it to the
NORMAL position.

light must come on when the handle is pressed and go off when the
handle is released. If the “FLUSH” status light did not follow commands of handle, then flush switch or related wiring is defective.
SYMPTOM 2. Flush valve will not open when the Mode Switch is in the SERVICE position or when
the flush handle is pushed while in the NORMAL position.
Procedure
Corrective Action
Check the voltage output
to the flush valve motor at
jack 6, pins 9 and 10 on the
control module as follows:
• Pull the control module out as far as the control cables will allow.
Locate jack 6 at the bottom of the control module.
• Remove the purple wire from pin 6.
• With DC voltmeter test leads across pins 9 and 10, flip the Mode
Switch between the NORMAL and SERVICE positions. If voltage is
present for about two seconds in the SERVICE position, the flush
valve motor or related wiring is defective. If voltage is not present,
replace the control module.

screen may be plugged with debris, or the water valve or its related
wiring is defective.
• If the “WATER VALVE” status light remains off, replace the control
module.
• If voltage is not present, replace the control module.
SYMPTOM 5. Water will not enter toilet bowl when the flush handle is raised in the “Add Water”
position.
Procedure
Corrective Action
Flush the toilet, then place
the Water Level switch in the
LOW position. Then check
the “LO LEVEL” status light
while raising the flush handle:
• If the “LO LEVEL” status light comes on, replace the control module.
• If the “LO LEVEL” status light does not come on, the flush switch or
its related wiring is defective.
SYMPTOM 6. Water Level switch has no effect on water level in the “Low” or High” position.

position:
• Clean underside of flush valve ball seal of dirt and debris.
Worn or damaged flush valve ball
and seal:
• Remove toilet from floor and remove base assembly from toilet and

•
•
•
•
Water hoses and fittings, water valve assembly
China toilet bowl
Upper base seal
Flush valve ball rotor shaft shaft
Base assembly
SYMPTOM 11. System leaks vacuum, but water remains in toilet bowl.
Procedure
Corrective Action
Remove the toilet from the floor
and insert a plug or vacuum tester
into the discharge port of the floor
flange or discharge adapter:
• If the vacuum leaks stops, go to the next step. If the vacuum leak
continues, the leak is in the discharge plumbing and not the toilet.
• Inspect the O-ring around the bottom of the base. Replace if defective.
• Inspect the inside surface of the discharge adapter or floor flange for
grooves or scratches that may interfere with the O-ring seal. Replace
if defective.
• If all of above appear normal, then the leak is most likely the rotor
shaft O-rings. Replace the rotor shaft.
