    Bayliner 245 Jabsco Toilet -------- Upgrade?

    Looking for suggestions. I searched the forum for toilet replacement, but didn't find any much. We have a manual Jabsco toilet that looks like it is the original. The manual water pull in is starting to stop working. Our toilet system now pulls water into the toilet from the lake and then we flush into the waste tank. I believe it is a 29042 Series toilet.

    I've been in contact with Paul over at Xylem and he gave me the recommended Jabsco Electric toilet replacement. Is it a better option to go with electric over a new manual? Is there a better or more reliable electric toilet to use? Looking for suggestions or options.

    We just purchased a 265 with a Jabsco Manual toilet and did the conversion to the electric pump, almost the same price as a new toilet without worrying about matching holes, best price for the kit was at Anchor Express, fast delivery too, you only need to remove the four screws at the base of the manual pump and the two screws connecting the waste hose, then run the electric wires along the waste hose back to the fuse panel. hope this help.

      Did you go with another Jabsco or another brand?

    I upgraded our factory head with this, pretty simple upgrade.
    Easy to use, just a little noise when in use. The girls think it's the best thing I've done to the boat.

      Exactly what I did, the little noise is the grinder for the waste. same opinion from my better half. she hated the pumping anyway ;-)

        oh so you guys replaced the manual unit pump with an electric. I was steered in the direction of replacing the whole toilet. It looks like there is only a couple hundred dollars difference between the 2 options. thanks for the advice guys.

          I thought about replacing the whole toilet beware that you will have to plug some holes at the base, there is not a matching electric toilet to the Jabsco manual toilet.

            I also did the conversion in my 288. Easy. Old toilet comes out, new one sits exactly where old unit was.Needs to be wired per instructions.

            Wife likes it. A little noisy.

            has foot pedal control.....happy wife...happy life.

            good luck

                Got the toilet installed, not to bad of an installation. Now comes my question.... Trying to get water to come into the toilet is my problem. I have the seacock valve on the bottom of the boat open but no water is filling in the bowl. I assume the toilet pump has to bring the water in? I undid the hose to the toilet for the infeed then slowly opened the seacock valve an still no water.

                it is a direct connection from seacock to toilet, 3/4 hose. Am I missing something? I’ve tried with the waste seacock open too but still nothing.

                the flush works great with me dumping water into the toilet.

                    Same toilet that I'm going with. Mine's still in the box in my living room LoL. Your seacock is closed in that picture but I hope you get it sorted out and update us in this post so others (me) can watch for the same issue.

                      Make sure you prime the toilet first. Close ball valve, pour water down into your incoming hose, then hit the fill button to prime. If you need any help just let me know

                    I just closed it because I got tired of messing with it. I poured water down into the hose and then tried it again and it pulled in the water from the hose. So I’m leaning towards bad seacock valve.

                      The toilet should be capable of pulling in its own flush water. Maybe some debris was caught up in the thru hull cover if equipped or some crud growing in the supply line maybe.

                        Well I figured out my issue. I brought an air tank to the boat, disconnected the hose from the toilet to blow air thru the hose and then out the ball valve. I was thinking there was trash stuck somewhere. Still didn’t fix the issue. So I cut the hose from the ball valve barb and slowly opened up the ball valve and still no water. Bad ball valve! Looks like I’ll be finding a way to pull my boat out of the water. Thanks for all the help guys.

                          Bad or plugged?

                        Did you try to run a stiff wire down through it or tap on a small wood dowel etc? Does the valve move? Maybe there’s a muscle or barnacles growing in there. If you could dislodge it it may save you from pulling the boat, just have a cap or plug at the ready.

                          I did try to push my screw driver down into it. I felt the metal ball part but couldn’t get it to move. I’m think about just capping it and T off my cold water to the bathroom sink and have that go into the toilet. This way I’ll use clean water instead of lake water. Whats your thoughts on that?
