Hi all, have an issue with our newish Jabsco
manual and want to float it out here.
The previous Jabsco
(same model, we all know it) was original to the boat
and lived for 23+ years. I rebuilt it four or five times, but finally replaced it since a new complete Jabsco toilet costs not appreciably more than a rebuild
That was about three years ago. When installed, the new Jabsco toilet was extremely difficult to pump
and required (requires) constant lubrication. Also, the Flush Control Lever, when pumping, would self-shift to the left and had to constantly be manually pushed all the way over to the right to pump
This year now I notice that there is a crack near the base of the pump housing. It is quite small, but it is revealed due to the excretion of the blue toilet chemical.
Of course, this is frustrating that the previous Jabsco toilet lasted 23+ years, and this one is busted, after not working very well to begin with.
An inquiry to Xylem/Jabsco about the crack received the response "we never see cracks in these systems" and, of course, it's out of warranty.
The replacement pump housing is roughly US$100, more than half the price of a new complete toilet. Duh.
Has anyone else had their Jabsco manual pump housing crack?
