Re: Heads suck

anjou, any acid will attack the alkali salt crystals. And yes, they are salts, and yes, urine forms salts in fresh or salt water, just more so in salt water.

You may be able to attack the crystals but the valves themselves are only rubber and after a few years they routinely need replacement, so you might just want to replace them all now. And in the future, pump longer and harder so there's nothing but WATER with no urine left soaking around those parts. Yes, that means lots more to pump out if you are using a tank. The trade-off is either more pumping, or more frequent salt problems.

This is why dairy farmers don't let the cattle use the facilities. Too much pumping out to do. You never knew?
