I got rid of my Willcox-Critteden and replaced it with a Lavac years ago. Best thing I ever did! It's nothing more than a big manual bilge pump and seals. No moving parts / flaps to break, etc!
The biggest issue determining installation is where to put the pump. My boat has a compartment behind the head which the pump could be fitted with the handle protruding out through a bulkhead. Go to Lavac's website and look at the schematic and measurement to see if it works for you.
