If you happen to be someone who would rather see their boat sink than to open & close the seacock every time you take a whiz, like me, then be sure that you CLOSE the seacock before you disconnect the inlet hose from your head. It can be quite surprising if you forget. Oh, and do replace the hoses.

I don't like those heads, I always replace them with a Raritan PHC.

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

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