    Jabsco Lite Flush-gctid376135

    We did the dirty (pun intended) deed today. Changed the manual pump for the lite flush. Install was very straight forward. Screws line up the the existing ones. Boat is not in the water so I could not test but the entire project look less than 2 hours from start to finish...I wish all boat projects were this easy!!

    The oldie but goodie??



    Clean up



    One new hole

      Looks great, installed mine this winter and it was one of the easier projects.* Tip to anyone that installs it make sure you use the right gauge cable. Thicker is better!Originally ran a 12 gauge and it didn't work, 8 was fine but the Jabsco guy really wanted me to use a #6.

        Thanks for the heads up on the wiring. The manual said 0-20' 12 guage, that is what I used.

          Keep in mind the wiring distance they are stating is the round trip distance.

            I have a question for you guys. This was an idea I have been playing with for a while now replacing the manual toilet to the lite flush one. Does the toilet work on 12v also? What if you are anchored and someone needs to use the toilet? When I was discussing the possibility of doing the conversion with someone, they asked that question and I wasn't sure of the answer.

              Yes she is set up for 12v operation.

                Thanks Phil. It looks tall. I would have to check if that height toilet would fit in the 245.

                  A bit taller than a manual head. If I remember it is standard height.

                    You can see it here beside the manual one, maybe 2-3" difference. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noU0K5k9LyE

                        There is no difference using the toilet while moving or at anchor ASSUMING you are not using a macerator. Since you are listing your home as a lake I assume you are not using a macerator. So the toilet draws from the lake for water and all the waste goes to the holding/waste tank.

                        A macerator is only legal miles off shore in the ocean.

                          Does anyone know if there is any restriction in using salt water i/o fresh water as it seems there is no macerator pump involved?

                            Let me clear this up as there is a little confusion going on here regarding macerators.

                            The Lite Flush incorporates 2 pumps, 1 is a macerator which grinds up all the goop and the other is a water pump which draws from the lake/sea. When flushed this all goes into the holding tank which needs to be eventually pumped out at an appropriate pump out facility located at most marina fuel docks.There are no restrictions on this setup regardless if electric or manual. The restrictions come in on a separate macerator setup which can be installed to dump your holding tank directly overboard. This is a completely separate instal from any type of toilet you may choose. In almost all cases you need to be at least 3 miles out into the ocean to legally dump this way. Hope this helps.
                            Cheers, Hans

                              Finally got her in the water on Sunday, here is a pic of the lite flush. Love this thing. relatively quiet and sounds like an airplane vucu flush when it does it 's thing. Handles mega logs on a single flush with no residue.
