Question Do I need the pump?

I am at the point I am ready to replace the head on my boat.

After a little review and research, we're thinking the Raritan Marine Elegance is the one for us. I know I need the 12V version (Amy says white). However, there is a version with a pump and one without. What is the pump for, do I need it?

If you want to flush using salt water you'll need the pump. Otherwise you'll used pressurized domestic fresh water.

Thanks, I was thinking it was something along those lines but wasn't sure. I think I'd like to go fresh water since I understand it helps control odors. More expensive with a pump so of course that's the one I gotta have! Ain't it always the way ...

Yeah, I know ... I got it totally backwards. Don't need the pump one with fresh water.

You can also set the Elegance to use either salt or fresh water. Nice option if your fresh water supply is limited.
