Re: question regarding electric head vs manual
If you have the power and holding tank capacity, electric is very nice. They typically macerate the bowl contents, which helps avoid clogging. I assume the macerated contents will break down better in the tank as well. Still, must be careful. For some reason, they say to flush much more clear water behind the waste to flush lines clear than with manual heads. This "chaser" is a very important concept to avoid odors with both manual and electric.
If you really want to live, get a vacuflush system. That's on my upgrade list one day, but not cheap.
