Joker valves interchangable?

First, it sure seems that the joker valves one the Jabso twist-n-lock, Raritan PHII and Groco manual head are functionally interchangeable. Yes, there are minor differences in the molding and the flange on the Groco is about 1/16-inch thicker, but I betting all will fit and all will work. I'm sure I've heard of folks swapping the Jabsco and Raritan valves. Good to know, if the store only has one of these.

Second, is one of these better, in anyone's expereince (you've tried both in the same head)? Yes, there are price differences, but that's not what I care about.

I seem to recall the Raritan claims to have a slightly larger "orifice".

Actually, I just measured the three (passing a cylindrical object through each). The Raritan and Groco were the same and the Jabsco would take one size larger. However, difference was most probably too small to make any practical difference.

I revised the post due to an unfortunate choice of words. I only envisioned use of the toilet.
