Re: Jabsco Head Pump

Rex, I've never heard of one failing the way you describe. I suspect that someone is pulling up too hard on the handle. Of course you may have run into a batch that the screws were over tightened. I'd talk directly to Jabsco about it. They really pay attention when consumers call with problems.

It is not a common failure mode for this toilet.

Re: Jabsco Head Pump

Jabsco is a cheap marine toilet made for a target group. More expensive toilets are usually better made and have better, lasting parts. Most marine dealers don't carry the better toilets because most people can't afford to buy them. If you buy a Yugo or Lada, expect Yugo reliability.
