Comments about Jabsco Diverter Valve:

I used this to replace the diverter valve on our boat's head...the previous one was more or less stuck (diverting to the bay!!) The installation was easy, although it would have been nice if the discharge ports were not curved or had a adjustable angle (in the plane of the Y) rather than rotating out of plane.

    Comments about Jabsco Diverter Valve:

    I have been using it for three months now and I think it is great. I was a little scared to buy it because of the reviews, but it works perfectly so far. I have a fresh water system, so maybe that will eliminate the "salt problems" that others are having. Either way, it is solid and works well.

    Handle Broke Off

      Comments about Jabsco Diverter Valve:

      Original equipment on my Beneteau. The handle broke off after 12 years. Although that seems like a long time, the handle is plastic and the connection to the valve could be a lot sturdier. I am buying a new one only because I just want to remove and replace the old unit.
      By the way, to minimize salt buildup, I have read recommendations for flushing the holding system periodically with white vinegar.

      A good design, poorly engineered.

      By Tim

      from Santa Cruz

      About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

      Pros

      • Easy to disassemble
      • Easy To Install
      • Flexible architecture

      Cons

      • Flimsy
      • Seals are easily damaged

      Best Uses

        Comments about Jabsco Diverter Valve:

        The valve seal is easily torn by accumulated salt build-up (think "#1"). The handle axel is wimpy and easy to break during normal use, especially when there is internal salt build-up.
        I don't enjoy overhauling waste systems, and so would appreciate if more design emphasis was placed on creating a robust, self-cleaning action.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Jabsco Diverter Valve:

          I like the holes to lock it so that it can't be changed, required by some agencies. In time it became difficult to operate and I broke the handle.

          Installed two of these last year in head system. I love them! Easy to install, take apart when needed, and haven't once clogged. Angled ports are a definite plus. Only con would be finding replacement parts.
