Hi Peggie and all -
Peggie, I don't know if you remember me, but you were a huge help about 14 years ago when we bought a '78 Trojan F32 and had to do extensive repairs
to the Vacuflush system. The system was trouble-free from there on.
We now have a 1995 Albin 28TE that has a Jabsco
manual toilet (#29020-0000) that I'm not thrilled with. It leaks
at the pump housing while pumping fresh water
, I randomly encounter strong resistance in the pump handle (the holding tank
is not full), and there is intermittent backflow into the bowl from the holding tank
. I haven't put anything in this toilet yet except baking soda dissolved in water
, vinegar solution, and KO (not all at once). The hoses probably need to be replaced and we need a bigger tank, but that's a separate project
I know we could replace the pump assembly, but I just don't have much faith that this toilet is engineered to perform to my standards. I expect a toilet to work consistently without clogging or backing up.
I've been doing lots of reading here, and a Raritan
toilet sounds like a good choice. I think that because of the very small head
, my only choice is a PHC. I've looked at the dimensions, and they seem very similar to the existing Jabsco
. There really isn't room to go significantly larger.
I like that the PHC would almost be a drop-in replacement as it uses seawater (same as the Jabsco) and is a manual toilet, so no need to run wiring
I like the idea of Marine
Elegance, but it just won't comfortably in the space.
Before I place an order, I just wanted to check whether I'm missing anything important.
Thanks for your help.
