Default Microflush replacement

I have a microflush 12v possibly 210 model with bottom discharge. That I’m having trouble with the flapper seal. PO had a spare replacement seal that I installed(previous one was thinner) now will not hold water for a sec. and gasses are filling coach as I’m driving.
Can anyone give me the procedure for repairing this old POC or have a direct replacement solution

Remove the old one and install the new one. Really nothing to it. I replaced mine with a Dometic.

I think the old design had a thinner seal and the newer thick seal also requires a new flapper to offset the thickness. Otherwise it won't sit flush. And you also risk breaking the plastic cam with the thicker gasket. You can get all the parts to fix correctly along with a replacement, stronger aluminum cam. Disassembly is not too bad, but have to pull the toilet. I'd suggest replacing the wax seal with a no-wax foam one so there's no mess when you have to pull it.

Search the forum for words like "microphor flapper"

Can someone tell me how much water per flush the microphor uses?
Or how much a drop through toilet uses?
It sure seems like they use a lot of water and that maybe a house toilet would be a better option.
no flaps to clean...

Default Microphor

I am pretty sure the 12v Microphor manual says two quarts per flush. That can, of course, be changed by changing the timer on the toilet. Whenever I have to change the seal, I end up having to tighten the cam. I replaced my plastic cam with a Saari aluminum cam. Works great!

Randy, I believe the 'ol standard toy-letta's used 2 plus gallons per vote. Don't they have 1 GPF porcelain ponies now?

FWIW, I sell about 15-20 cams a year but mostly to the boating types. RV personnel are wising up, har!

Two quarts!!! Seems like allot compared to my straight drop toilet Dometic China bowl model 510. I’d say it uses quite a bit less than a quart and even less for “liguids”. When using, the user directly controls the “flush” length as needed. We also have the hand sprayer and that works great for washing down “residuals” . A modern-efficient house toilet uses about a gallon. My house Water Ridge purchased last year at CostCo uses 1.1 gpf. However, it has a short flush option for “less demanding” flushes. The Dometic (SeaLand) employs a KISS simple straight-drop to the black tank in the bay below. While not at the composting toilet water efficiency level, have been very happy with it when off-grid. Rebuilt the valve-ball last year and it was an easy project with parts readily available. Have not noticed it to be significantly shorter than the Water Ridge in the house. Replacing the Micro with a non-electric is not a new idea -

Like everyone has been saying. The Dometic that I replaced my Microphor with is less wasteful with water. If boondocking you just leave a small amount of water in bowl. Maybe an inch or two at most. Do that each time you flush liquids. When doing solids ad more water to accommodate and flush as needed. Just so easy with a press of the foot peddle. If you want to do that with the Microphor you have to take the "tank" lid off adjust the screw valve each and every time. PIA.

Prob with house style is the sewer gsa seal is a j trap. Then to get solids past the j trap you need a large volumn of water dropped in the bowl at one time. The old units with elevated tanks used the long dropping added pressure to help. I believe this was the origin for 'head pressure'
