Re: Heads

Ended up finding these at JayCar Part Number SP0758 at $6.95. They work a treat. They are the same size as the original, so just pull the old out swap the wire plugs put a small amout of sica on and push back in. 30 second swap out.

30 second job on a boat. Impossible. You left out time to: find where you put the switches when you brought them back from the shop (probably in fridge with veggies); find sica then find it's gone hard so go to store to buy more; drop cables into cavity and have to fish them out; stop to check for new messages on Cruisers forum as computer just pinged; find it's beer o'clock so you have to stop work and pack up as better half wants shower. 2 days sounds more like it

Re: Heads

Any hassles getting the mirror off? What are the 2 wires for?

Re: Heads

5 screws on the outside. 3 on the little white corner brackets inside the shelves. Silicone down one side. I just cut it the peeled off later. The wires are for the lights that are above the mirror. Be warned they did not have plug an sockets so I had to cut the wires and put plug and sockets on when I put it back on. Not a big problem just awkward. We also took the chance to clean the backflow valve while it was accessible. Despite our best efforts there was still a fair amount of calcium in it. Easy to remove pull apart and clean. We always had a very small amount of back fill. After cleaning the valve none.

Great thanks for the info. We have had backflow problems on that side also but never in guest's heads (sounds strange written like that!). We had a major blockage last year and were introduced to a great Turkish product called Por Coz. Not sure what's in it but it sure shifts calcium. Was amazed at just how much there was even though we regularly (monthly) do a vinegar flush of the whole system. There is a lot to be said for bucket and chuck it

Did you read the instructions? Are you sure that's not a bidet you just installed?

Re: Heads

Check out 'Sew Clean', made by the same folks that brought us 'Barnacle Buster'....formulated for head hoses....Defender carries it I think....works like a charm and you may not have to dismantle a thing...

So let me ask, as a prospective Lipari owner....how does the holding tank empty....gravity or is there a macerator pump...when emptying offshore...

Just gravity. Everything goes through the tank. When you flush it goes up the pipe past the no return valve and empties into the tank. If it's turned off it stays there. If opened then it flows out the bottom and out the 90 degree through hull
