Re: Which Electric Toilet?

The part number for the Marine Elegance Toilet with Bidet option is 220BF012.
This is a standard height white bowl with an angled back, fresh water flush and smart flush control. I didn't see it offered with a straight back bowl but I can check with Raritan on that.

If you decide to buy one, I'd appreciate the chance to quote you on it.

I have a Jabsco electric macerator 24V electric toilet in the boat since 1988. You know the integrated impeller plus blade version.

Works well , blockages easily to clean ( 4 screws ) loud , but who cares , everything can be heard on a boat anyway. ( and it disguises some noises )

I have no complaints

Dave

Will do.

Spoke with Raritan. They could not immediately find the part numbers, and will call me back. What I'm looking for is:

- flat
- white
- shorter version (normal?)
- bidet
- sea fresh
- smart controller

But I may need the angled back depending on room to run hoses below, which I need to check on.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

I just bought the Marine Elegance, with smart flush and the Purasan. It seemed like the best option for me.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

memelet, The Raritan part number for what you describe should be 221BS012.
It's not in their price list but I bet they would make it. I think you've got them scrambling to figure this out.

2 = Marine Elegance
2 = Standard Bowl Height
1 = Straight Back Bowl
B = Bidet
S = Sea Fresh Option
012 = 12 volt
Smart Switch is Standard

Its here! Its here! Its here! Why am I so excited about a toilet and a purasan? So far it doesn't have any odor at all.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

Ok, Raritan has spoken:

Quote:
Hi Barry - Sorry! Each Marine Elegance only has the Macerator pump and the
Fresh water solenoid within the bowl. If you choose a raw water version the
pump must be mounted remotely. In the case of the Seafresh you have both the
freshwater solenoid as well as the remote intake pump installed so that you
can switch between the two. The bidet is always connected to freshwater with
its own connections which is why it gets tight when you add the necessary
check valves for the seafresh to the freshwater solenoid valve. But, if a
short bowl is a must then I simply need to know straight or slant and
whether you want it connected to outside raw water (remote pump) or onboard
freshwater (solenoid) either one will work fine with the bidet. Hope that
all makes sense

Kim
So I guess I need 221B?012

2 = Marine Elegance
2 = Standard Bowl Height
1 = Straight Back Bowl
B = Bidet
012 = 12 volt
Smart Switch is Standard

I will now try to source this, so HapCar if want to provide a price you can send me a message. I am located in Berkeley CA 94710.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

As a side note to anyone reading this, the new Jabsco electric flush heads have a problem with overspill when flushing. In fact its more of a squirt up your trouser leg.

This is one of the reasons I gave up being a manager of supplying the marine trade, products being rushed through before extensive testing.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

And here I'm wondering, is it just me, or has Raritan really had a lot of folks ask for the bidet to be plumbed to the outside unstrained raw water rather than the fresh water supply? And is there a hot water mixer available?

Certain is professional of them to ask and confirm, that's for sure.

Re: Which Electric Toilet?

Gavala, which model Jabsco toilet are you talking about? They make seven or eight different models.

Could I let you know in the next two days when I am back in the office. Not only did I find the importer to Jabsco difficult but also the recognised installer.

I personally couldn't care if its one head or a craft with 10 as I believe every customer should be treated the same no matter the budget, however Jabsco on this last occasion failed to take up a complaint from (the fourth customer) who wanted the problem solved before ordering another three.

They failed miserably and is why I don't use them in the refit.

It wouldn't have to be unstrained and in southern lats, warm salt water sounds kind of nice. Oh wait, jelly fish bits, maybe filtered sea water. I bet it would be a real shocker in Canada!
