converting raw water head to fresh water

The boat I'm thinking about buying currently has a manual raw water flush head. I've been told that using raw water can lead to smells. Since I'm going to be living aboard, at a marina most of the time, I think I can spare the fresh water to use for flushing. How hard/expensive is it to convert a head? Do you think it would be worth it? Sadly I do not know the brand of head currently installed in the boat. Would it be better to replace it entirely? Does a fresh water flushing head work more like the ones you find in a camper (i.e. no pumping, just step on a lever or push a button)? Thanks.
