The hoses are not really the issue. Ours are short runs, 3-4' each, so they are easy to remove and clean. I admit I've been battling head
issue that were somewhat related to the hoses/thru-hull being clogged. The main issue I had with the electric
head was how noisy it was. In the middle of the night and somebody flushes it sounds like a chainsaw attacking the hull! So in all my extensive troubleshooting I took 1' of the rise out of the vented loop, which means it's still high enough but much less pumping to clear it. We do have odor
issues, but that's typically due to aim and lack of an easy way to wash down the head (a faucet upgrade with sprayer will fix this). So no more hose talk, please!
My reason from ordering from WM was to avoid shipping fees
from Defender, since the price
is about the same, it makes it easier to return versus having to ship it back if there was a problem, but for grins i checked Defender and they still have it in stock.
So we have the jabsco
manual toilet - $150 (already own, about 1 yr old)
Fresh head manual toilet - $400 upgrade
and now I just saw the new whisper flush - $700 upgrade
Anyhow, not made of money
, actually wife got laid off 6 months early because she gave them too much notice that we are leaving to go cruise
, but having a nice toilet would probably be a justifiable expense. Anybody seen the new whisper flush first hand?
I've just always been a "go whichever way the wind
blows" kind guy, and when something tries this hard to escape my purchase
, I question why!
