I'd point out that the Jabsco heads are a pretty low-quality unit, and that you're generally much better off avoiding them. This isn't only my opinion, but that of Peggie Hall, doyene of the marine plumbing world.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
