Its not everyday that you get news of commode developments. These should of course come as a great step forward in human development; after all no, matter what color or creed your are, these developments affect us all.
And on a ship, flushing a vacuum toilet can sometimes disturb a sleeping coworker, or even ruin hopes of going back to sleep quickly after a drowsy trip to the loo. I read with strange interest of a new toilet from Evac that is more quiet than other vacuum flush toilets. Have a look at the news release and amaze yourself with these developements. With a drop of 5 to 8 decibles, its certain to be well received on multiple ships.
