Re: Jabsco Quiet-Flush Electric Toilet leaks like a seive

Thanks to everyone for sharing with me the various solutions that have been used to resolve black water leaks (thanks for the correction, "captmikem"; my original note referred to grey water which is, of course, incorrect). In my case, I bought a sheet of gasket material from an auto parts store, cut it to the shape and size of the seal housing face, drilled 4 holes for the seal housing attachment screws, and drilled one hole in the center that fits snuggly but not too tightly around the motor shaft. For good measure, I used a double thickness of the gasket material. MAGIC - the leaking stopped.

"BobH260": you referred to the lip seals being installed backwards. Which way is correct? The owners' manual is not explicit.

The best news is that my wife is happy to have the head working like new again. We have no more mess and the associated odor. Wedded bliss has been restored.
