I love the low profile, but this does come at a cost. Six weeks after installation, the water started to back up, and there was an unpleasant smell from the waste. It turned out that the waste filter had clogged up, and due to the low profile, there was stagnant water that had algae and smelled. No instructions from RAK on how to remove the filter and clean it (which is a real pain), and it needed bleach to get rid of the smell - this needs doing every four weeks or so, from my experience. Also, unless you wipe dry the tray after every use, pink algae soon form on the tray due to the non-slip surface
