Not much chance of that, Mike. We're sitting on the hard, as part of our major re-fit.

Many thanks to all, for the helpful hints. Removing the head went quite well. In fact, it went so well that we decided to delay installing the new one and remove floorboards, trace plumbing lines. I've been wanting to do this since we bought the boat in Oct 2009, and being on the hard is a great opportunity!

Barquito Not that mine doesn't stink, but, at half the price, I am going to go with the Jabsco too. I think for a live-aboard, this would be a false economy. Me, I will mostly day sail.

capttb I don't like those heads, I always replace them with a Raritan PHC.
RARITAN STANDARD MANUAL TOILET II ON COMPACT II BASE - PHC

poopdeckpappy I know how ya know

But, beside that, pump it out, flush it with fresh water, pump that out and you should be good to go

And second the veg oil & vinegar ............though somethings I have to use olive oil

sailortjk1 Be ready to do this about every other year with a jabsco. Don't ask me how I know.

captflood Greetings Earthlings; I do hope you have been useing vegitable cooking oils and vinigar when you leave your loos for a while. The oil lubes the bits and the vinigar breakes down lots of the nasties. use the old one as repair or spears. Never do today what becomes somone elses problem tomorrow !
That sounds like a deligated job step forward you volanteer. Go Safe

Nonsense. I've replaced dozens using the wet vac. Use the foam filter ONLY (throw away later if you can't clean) and put 1 cup of bleach into the vacuum tank before you use the vacuum. There'll be no smell.

Barquito Doing the same thing myself. While you are in there, replace hoses. Old hoses could be source of stink.

sailjunkie Thanks for the advice folks. Gary, my wife sends you a big thanks for suggesting NOT to use our Shop Vac.
