rebuilding heads, etc.
So I'm not the only one who has had the pleasure changing a macerator!! I feel for your other poor bastards.
Anyway, rebuilding or changing a head isn't that bad. Just run a lot of water and some vinegar through it, and it won't be terrible. Before you start the rebuild, find out how much a new head costs, and thing very very hard about just tossing the old and installing a new. My last boat came with a old Jabsco head that didn't draw water in. I tried to rebuild it, but it leaked. So for $100 I bought a brand new one. If the head was a good one I would have tried harder to repair it.
I do have kids (3 of them, 6, 9, 13) but changing diapers was nothing compared to changing the macerator. I can tell you that from now on, my holding tank will receive a regular treatment of odorloss, and the macerator will get used on a regular basis.
