Magnum Opus™ Vacuum Toliet Now In Low-Profile Design

Four Designer Colors, Choice Of Trim Finish Available

(10/10/2001 - BIG PRAIRIE, OH) To accommodate raised platform installations, the advanced Magnum Opus™ premium, one-piece, all-china vacuum toilet will be available in a new, low-profile design for boat manufacturers in January 2002. Measuring three inches (76mm) shorter than the original version, the low-profile Magnum Opus toilet has a height of 14 inches (356mm) from the mounting surface to the top of the toilet seat.

To complement a more diverse range of interior décor, all Magnum Opus models will also be available in SeaLand's full range of popular designer colors. These include white, bone, ebony and teal. The flush handle and other metallic trim can be chrome or polished gold, providing a choice of sparkling accents to the lustrous vitreous china fixture.

With its all-china residential styling, the Magnum Opus toilet matches the appearance of today's most popular household toilets. And by combining Flush and Forget(tm) electronically timed performance with SeaLand's proven flush valve mechanism, boat owners now can enjoy the same operating simplicity provided by traditional household toilets.

Magnum Opus toilets can flush with as little as one pint (.5 l) of fresh water per flush. When compared to manual toilets that can use more than one gallon (3.8 l) per flush, Magnum Opus toilets can increase holding tank capacity by up to 400 percent. And as with all SeaLand VacuFlush® sanitation systems, the Magnum Opus toilet uses fresh water, which eliminates odors associated with a seawater flushing system.

Magnum Opus vacuum toilets feature an elongated HushFlush(tm) wooden seat for superior user comfort and whisper-quiet operation. They also include important features that make operating and maintaining the all-china toilet easier than ever:

  • Multiple Pre-set Water Levels - "Low" setting keeps residual water in bowl to a minimum; "Mid" and "High" settings provide a water surface similar to household toilets. 
  • Convenient "Add Water" Feature - The dual-function flush handle is used to add water to bowl before flushing if needed, as well as to activate flushing. 
  • Anti-splash Rim - Keeps water in the bowl while underway. 
  • Flush Valve Sensor - Automatically stops flush valve from closing during operation if foreign object prevents normal operation. 
  • Service Mode - Keeps the flush ball open and shuts the water off to allow easy access to the bowl and flush valve seal for cleaning. 
  • Easy-access Seat Bolts - Allow the seat to be adjusted easily if necessary.
