Has anybody done a retrofit like this on a Mahe? Are there any alternatives to the Raritan (which is fairly expensive)? And if anyone has done this, did you keep the old FP holding tank?
Yes keep old holding tank. Suggest to keep things simple and keep the manual jabsco as itís the best in the Long run. The simple the less breaks in the toilet
and it will break.
You could switch to flush with sweet/tank water
if you have a watermaker
or often dock
Thought thatís a waste but I have it now on my new catamaran
in the owner hull
. And to direct compare in the guest hull
a seawater one which is Manual jabsco converted to electro. Much more gunk and smell in the seawater one. I have to admit it makes a big difference and I will change that guest hull one soon too to tank water
and upgrade the watermaker
with a 2nd membrane to compensate for the extra water usage.
