The Raritan PHC and PHII are among the most reliable of manual heads and doing it this way you save considerably on shipping and on the cost of buying a new head.
Not a bad idea, SD... but I reckon that the Raritan parts (pump) will run more than a Jabsco head complete - of course the quality will be better.
