Oh my gosh! Our wonderful weekend out sailing the Hauraki Gulf went slightly astray when our head
decided to pack it in. Instead of pumping out and then blocking any back flow it now pumps out and fountains! NOT A GOOD LOOK! Thank goodness for a porta potti backup.
So my skipper
down and bum up in the head at the moment trying to work out if it is fixable or not. Being an old head from America and us living here in NZ it may become a need to make the decision to buy a new one and here is the question. Electric
or manual? What does everyone think of electric
ones? Which ones are recommended as the quietest, easiest to maintain regularly and access all the bits? Obviously one that is available to buy here in NZ would be a BIG choice factor. Or should we stick with a manual?
Now another odd question - can anyone tell me if it is possible to change the orientation of the base of the toilet to the seat of the toilet. So instead of the normal electric toilet with the motor
section at the back of the toilet, can we put it at the side and then place the seat in the normal position? ie:- the base sitting East West and the seat sitting North South? The seats all look like they are just bolted onto the base so because we are short of space we wondered if that is feasible?
Any and all help and suggestions are appreciated. Skipper
now calling me from the depths - must go and help. Fiona
