The newest generation of PHII - The PH pump used on the PH Superflush is a design that is timeless. This pump was originally designed in the 1960’s for the U.S. Navy and while it is no longer built of bronze it has undergone some improvements over the years but the basic function remains the same.
The dual action pump is 66% larger in diameter than any competitive toilet on the market. Because the housing is larger it more easily moves more water in and out of the bowl meaning you spend less time pumping and more time enjoying your time on the water. If water usage is a concern the intake water can easily be turned off and the unit can still be pumped to allow flushing with virtually no water being used.
A newly designed base enables this unique manual/electric toilet to easily install in installations where the builder has chosen only a mass produced manual toilet.
In addition to the larger housing the pump also boasts a full size joker valve which helps to prevent clogs and improves the flushing action. A lever handle rather than a T-grip allows all users to flush the toilet with incredible ease! It is during pumping that you realize how much difference the larger pump housing makes! Only a few pumps of the handle and the toilet is flushed. Smaller housing means many up and down pumps of the handle to move only a little bit of water. The air vent added on in the 1980’s allows the user to close the intake water while still pumping and prevents pressure build-up. Being able to flush the toilet without adding water has many benefits including the ability to empty out the bowl while in heavy seas. Each unit comes with a slow close seat that include stops on the underside of the seat to help prevent the seat from shifting while in use in heavy seas.
The PH Superflush offers the normal small marine size bowl but also has models with a bit more seating area considered our household size bowl. Water must be drawn in from the outside or can be used with fresh water if you have a dedicated tank for pulling freshwater in. for those wishing to use onboard pressurized freshwater we recommend the Fresh Head. The Superflush handle has been updated to telescopic allowing for more leverage when flushing for the youngest of users or to neatly tuck away especially in head areas with extremely limited space.
The generation before the PH Superflush was the PHII and is world renowned for its longevity and performance. Raritan has always prided itself on selling individual replacement parts rather than entire kits. While we offer kits we also find that it is quite common to need to replace just a single part. For that reason you can always contact our technical support and find the part you need from a screw to the bowl.
