Just go and buy on of these, they are inexpensive, work, and a rebuild kit is easily found and easy to install.

Instead of buying a Jabsco, which is a pretty lousy unit by all accounts, I'd get a RARITAN PHC/PHII LBA unit, which is about the same price as the full size Jabsco Twist & Lock and only a little more money than the Jabsco Twist & Lock compact head.

The LBA unit re-uses the bowl off your existing head, and basically gives you a brand new (except the bowl) Raritan PHC or PHII head unit. This head unit is considered one of the best inexpensive manual head units by Peggie Hall, and is a far better unit than the Jabsco.

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.

The Raritain is about the same price? When I looked they were almost double the Jabsco? And what makes the Jabsco unit "louzy"...Ive had mine for about three years and it works just fine, probably will need to rebuild it in a year or two but just about any head will need that, no?

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

T37Chef—

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 $454...so 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.

Nah, don't listen to any of their advice.

You need to buy the Jabsco Quietflush electric head. Best head I have ever crapped in. Plus it has a auto-wipe function: just hold the bowl-fill button down while sitting there. My 6 yo showed me that one. Ahh.... the joys of parenting on a boat.

Thanks for the clarification SD, I don't get the twist and lock thing on the jasbco either. I guess I'm just sayin the Jasbco is inexpensive and does the trick rather well IMO, maybe when the pump breaks I'll replace it with the Raritan part LOL

Cheers,
Shawn
