So, I Installed a New Toilet

I am almost finished with renovating the head. I installed a new toilet today and took pictures. I was so proud! But then only a crowd like this would understand.

Here are some pictures: Capt’n Tom’s Log Blog Archive Installed a New Toilet

Looks great. So you just screwed it down? The PO on my boat bolted mine down. I don't know how though and they used galvanized bolts... needless to say I now have very rusty bolts holding the head down.

Sweet...I bought the same toilet today, and new hoses too....intending to replace my head.....unfortunately the PO left the old tank 3/4 full. So, gonna have to get it pumped before I'll open the system.

Screws will probably not hold for long. Really needs to be bolted down. If access to the underside is difficult, consider heavy duty anchors.

That new install looks way too nice to actually sit on.

Access to mine underneath is non existent. If mine does have bolts, I will not be able to get to the nuts underneath without cutting an access hole in the base that I can get my hand and a wrench into.

If it does have bolts....how in the world did they install it to begin with? No wonder the silly "rebuild kit" for the pump is more expensive than a brand new unit.

Good thread! I can really relate to this because of my recent personal experience.

Just in the final stages of hooking up a Jabsco compact head. However, what was originally intended as a simple head replacement morphed into replacing all of the hoses, plus a seacock. For good measure, the plastic elbows on top of the seacocks were all replaced with bronze ones; and a Y valve was added, to switch between overboard discharge and deck pump out.

The only things not replaced were the macerator pump (still works) and the holding tank. Getting access to the holding tank means removing the floor boards in the deep locker. To remove the floor boards, I would have to unbolt the macerator pump, which is directly above one side of the holding tank. However, it is directly under the fuel tank. Can you see where this is going? Bottom line: if it ain't broke, I ain't going there.

Overall, this has been a great exercise. When we bought the boat, the PO couldn't tell me anything about the plumbing system. All he knew was that when he hit the toggle for the macerator pump, magic happened. Because I installed it, I now know how everything works, including how to lock out the macerator for trips stateside. I am definitely in my happy space.
