Hello Jim,

Personally I only use the shower head to flush the toilet as you are doing now.

I am not sure it is worth installing Y valve, selector, etc. but I am sure you can spend that time and money on many other things !!!
Plus keep your AMEL as original.

I'll try taking out just the
two screws and the niple for the next joker valve change.

I flush with fresh water from the shower most
of the time. On the long term to-do wish list is installing
a y-valve/selector valve in the engine room for each
head's supply to be able to select fresh or sea water
supply. Since all vacu-flush heads on other boats are always
plumbed with fresh water flush only I don't think there
is more than a 1 in 100,000 chance of contaminating the
fresh water supply. But if I ever get around to this I will
certainly use check/joker valves, and gravity to reduce any
posibility of back-flow.
