Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Electric Heads

I second the Lavac choice. We put a Lavac in the forward head almost 3 years ago, and have been full time liveaboards since that time. We have not had a single clog, and have done NO maintenance on the toilet since new. I've use many different brands of toilets in the other 6 boats I've owned to include manual and electric, and nothing has come close to the reliability of this toilet.
The head has a seal on the underside of the lid, and creates a vacuum as you pump. It has a very reliable Mk5 Henderson pump which I have mounted on the aft wall near the head to flush. It is just a simple and bulletproof design with very little that can go wrong. They have an option for an electric motor to drive the Henderson pump, but I prefer the simplicity and reliability of the manual pump.
