Jabsco manual to electric conversion help

Just to be clear Peggie

I want to be able to clear a 1m metre vertical lift to the holding tank. Currently even with brand new joker valves with the manual , the liquid effluent will seep back over time and partly refill the bowl , diagnostics If the user doesn’t dry pump enough. ( big prob with guests)

With the macerator version. ( which I like ) I can arrange a timer to shut off the water intake and dry pump via the macerator to clear the rising pipe.

, could you comment , will those macerator pumps withstand 10-15 seconds dry running ? , in your opinion, thanks .( I think 5 secs might be enough anyway to clear the pipe )

The osculati toilet seems to have a left side outlet , so when the pump is orientated to the right the output would suit my current plinth and pipe exit orientation. I can Re place the current 40 mm outlet with 25mm pipe ( reducer on the holding tank input )

I’m keen to have a macerating function as it greatly helps holding tank issues.

I have a spare jabscowater puppy “ pump that I can use for the seawater intake flush

Re: Jabsco manual to electric conversion help

I know nothing about the osculati toilet...never heard of it before. However, both the Jabsco and Johnson toilets can be installed with the pump/motor assembly on either side. Because you want a toilet that uses a remote intake pump, avoid the "integral" pump models that have intake impeller. Depending the pressure and volume specs for your spare Water Puppy, you should be able to use it as your intake pump.

And with this, I think I've offered all the help I have to offer here.

Your idea to attend MATS where you can see and "touch" toilets and talk with the mfrs is very good one...I strongly recommend you do that. It's entirely possible you'll see other toilets with which I'm unfamiliar...mfrs introduce new equipment there and you can introduce something to me!
