The twist-lock mechanism is a hackneyed way of solving a non-issue in a better designed head. The Raritan PHC LBA unit is only $220, and not the same thing as the pump you've pointed out. The Jabsco head you're pointing out is $175. For the $45 price difference, I'd recycle the bowl and get the Raritan instead.

A brand-new Raritan PHC head unit is $ for $220, you're getting the equivalent of a $455 head that is probably one of the best designed in the business and recommended by Peggie Hall....BTW, the RARITAN Compact II you linked to is not the same thing or in the same league as the PHC/PHII... totally different beasties.

No sure how accurate these comparative prices are for the Raritan but...

For another $130 +- the Raritan is most likely the better buy, of course you could just buy the coversion kit as SD mentions, PHII Pump Assembly

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.
