Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

Peghall ,thanks for the input. I think I will save another $150 to buy the Raritan. I guess I was talking about the base bolts not brackets. Mine was all broken at the base and at the pump.

Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

I looked at prices for the Raritan PHII and the new Superflush on the net. The original, compact version of the PHII was listed for$415, the new Superflush also compact model $295.

Why is the new one so much cheaper? Is the Superflush the el cheapo model? Did Raritan cut corners on this one or just a simpler design, less expensive to manufacture?

Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

The new PH SuperFlush costs less because Raritan has been able to cut costs...for instance, the SuperFlush will replace both the PHII and the PHC...it has the same base as the Fresh Head All of which may not sound like much to you, but anyone in mfr'g knows that a $.50 saving there can take $5.00 or even more off a retail list price.

Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

I don't have one but would love one. I just helped bring a boat up my way that had been on the hard for 7 years and once we had her in the water we worked on the Raritan head , since we had a maybe 5 day sail ahead of us. Damn thing still worked no effort needed , simply let water in and she pumped like brand new we were all amazed . When my Jabsco bites the bullet ill change over

Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

You all convinced me to go for the Raritan model for $300 but now I see an ad at West Marine for the 12v electric jabsco for $419 and a $50 rebate. Any comments?

Re: New Toilet from Raritan- PH SuperFlush

Electric toilets need to be on their own dedicated circuit shared by nothing else with a separate breaker...so if you're "upgrading" from manual to electric you'd have that additional expense. And you should know that all Jabsco products are now made in Mexico using parts and components made in China and other comparable "offshore" sources. Raritan products are still made in the US. If you want an electric toilet, you can buy a Raritan SeaEra "conversion" SeaEra Conversion Kit which allows you re-use your Jabsco bowl seat and lid (yes it WILL fit) for about the same price as the Jabsco at WM. Ask HopCar for a quote. You'd have the same additional cost of the new wiring for it or any other electric toilet.
