What head will fit in a PS34?

Wanting to hear from ps owners on what head, besides the groco k and lavac, that will fit in the tiny footprint of a ps34.
Please do not try to sell me on the groco K, we have bought two duds in a row, first one leaked and appeared to be used, and the second one doesnt pump well (weak and wimpy!).

Thanks for any input you are able to give.
sincerly,
Erika

Don't know the footprint of the 34 but I replaced the Groco K in my 31 with a Raritan PHII and have been extremely happy with it.

I have just installed a PHII in the head of my PSC 31, which has to have the smallest head of any boat I've owned. The PHII is generally considered to be the clear winner among moderately priced manual heads. I've owned several in other boats and have been satisfied with their performance.

We looked at the specs of the PHII and I think we are about 3 1/2 shy for depth! It appears to me we need 14-15 inches from the wall to the base of the head, do you agree?
thanks for the help,
Erika

I'll measure mine sometime this week and let you know. When you say depth, do you mean front to back?

According to the diagram here, http://www.raritaneng.com/pdf_files/ph_II/L04v0505.pdf, it is 9.25" from the rear wall to the rear bolt on the base. The entire unit is only 20" from wall to front of toilet.

Yep, we have about 11 from wall to edge so 9.25" will be very close.

Groco says to reseat/reposition the joker valve and that should fix our weak suction problem, will try it tonight (grumble grumble) hopefully it will help.

Thanks,
Erika

That is the chart I was using. It shows 14.25 inches from the wall to the front bolt. We only have 11 inches. It seems almost all heads are larger than 11 inches on this dimension.

The HF would fit, might have same footprint as K, not sure how much improvement it would be over a K, I haven't had too many problems (broken cam) with mine.
YMMV
