Re: Changing Out The Head Again..

So,
Here are a couple pictures of the Head and area.
As you can see the outlet and Raw water inlet is right there.
In the bulkhead is a fresh water line to the left.
The holding tank is in the bulkhead below the locker doors.
I wouldn't need more then 5' to run the outlet.
My question now is should I mount the Y valve in the locker or right behind the head with only the holding tank hose and fresh water hose going through.
Either way it's would pretty easy to get to just the pluming side will be a little harder if mounted in the lock, which I have cut another access to and am putting a hinge door on.

KenH, am I missing something? This appears to be a composting toilet. Your prior stuff referred to a standard head setup, as does the question here about Y valve.

Please elucidate (or, are you pulling the composter?)...

Of course. This has gone on so long that I'd forgotten!

35 years with the same Lavac. Rebuild the bilge pump every 5 years.
