Re: Willcox-Crittenden Headmate - Fix or Float Test?

I liked our WC Headmate(s) for many years. Finally got a PHII. As far as "rathings" go, from worst to better to best: Groco, Jabsco, Headmate, PHII and then the Lavacs and electrics.

Installation of Raritan PHII head w/Flix

I have the WC Headmate on my boat and just bought the rebuild kit; we'll see (and smell) how it goes.

Re: Willcox-Crittenden Headmate - Fix or Float Test?

So will the PHII and PHC both fit a Wilcox Crittenden Head Mate? The only advantage of the PHC is that it takes up less room in the head and is a bit cheaper?

landmineop Have you ever considered a composting head ? Absolutely NO pumps, NO hoses and it can be installed in a very short time. It also clears up space where the holding tank used to reside and gets rid of smelly hoses that have to be replaced.

weephee I wish this post was a few weeks earlier. I just bought the full kit for my Wilcox Crittenden. I haven't replaced everything yet but this is certainly not sounding too promising. Damn

bernardmitchell Thank you for your thoughts.

Looks like its a Raritan or Lavac.

I could put the pump in behind the head, but it would take up limited space in an already tight locker. I've checked out the Levac website and installation information. It just isn't going to work.

Now, I could probably put one in the forward head. I have a bit more options there.

Gladrags1 I got rid of my Willcox-Critteden and replaced it with a Lavac years ago. Best thing I ever did! It's nothing more than a big manual bilge pump and seals. No moving parts / flaps to break, etc!

But as I said... the kit is a good deal of savings...

$220 for the PHC LBA and $290 for the PHII.

True, but the LBA kit that SD refereed is less. I'd love a Lavac, but really can't figure out where I'd be able to install the pump in this tiny head. Hence the PHII or PHC.
