Crown II heads... I've had the pleasure of one of these units not operating properly already. Mine are 13 yrs old now and I'm considering a major rebuild
I found an exchange assembly where you buy a factory refurbished macerator unit w/motor (pretty much everything below the porcelain) for about half the new head
retail cost. Since I have much corrosion
on the motor
housings and a cracked front pump plate anyway (WHY do they make this part out of plastic??!!), this major assembly swap sounds like a good approach.
On the other hand, looking at the parts
breakdown, there's not a lot of replaceable parts
in the thing. A rebuild
kit is far cheaper than the exchange of course. If I just didn't have to stick my hand in there....
Anyone have experience with these? Have you rebuilt and/or done the core
exchange? Or is there a better replacement head
out there I should consider?
Thanks in advance...
