I've used both traditional and composting heads. There are several previous threads which discuss the advantages and disadvantages.

Another alternative is the "skipper" head which seems to flush anything. Willcox-Crittenden was sold but the new owners are still marketing the Skipper. One can by an old one at a marine consignment store and rebuild it for the price of a new PH-II, etc. I did this 10 years ago and have been pretty satisfied.

I've heard that the trick is to use the Ruritan standard Jocker in the Jabsco standard toilet. Something about it being a tougher material and lasting longer. I believe the Ruritan is a slit opening instead of the "Y" config of the Jabsco. Any input??

I heard this too so I tried the Raritan valves in a Jabsco. As far as I can see there's no difference. This is after six months of cruising so I used it a lot.
