New To Us Jabsco Y-Valve style
on April 11, 2013
I'd been accumulating this unit's predecessors as they were many years obsolete. Unfortunately in our latest refit, not only the one we'd had, but the spare we installed, broke, and the two OTHER units we had could not stand up to disassembly for parts.
I'd been dreading this day for years, literally, as our system would not accommodate large changes, which this was, being larger in all dimensions.
Fortunately, I was able to adjust the legs, a feature not found in the predecessors, and that allowed me to make it work in our installation.
The quality and beef of this unit is far superior to our prior.
Update after more than two years of use:
Added, experience, input:
The lever arm is far more substantial than the previous unit(s) we'd coveted (due to the fit in our installation).
Whether that has relevance, or the unit itself is better made (my expectation, based on surface inspection), I don't know, but it's also orders of magnitude easier to move from one side to the other.
In our prior system, we even had a handle break due to torque needed to make the transfer. This moves smoothly and easily.
We still like it. You can see the entire installation where we have it, should you care to, by going to:
