    • fequent replacement required
    • Impractical

    • Low Usage

    Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

    Either the material used or the design is faulty, lucky to get more than 3 or 4 months at best out of this valve. The duckbill deforms and will not seal allowing flush to back up in the bowl. Rarity needs to take note make an effort to correct this valve, otherwise many will seek other brand of toilets, I know I will.

    Don't buy the black ones after all

    Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

    Modifying my earlier suggestion, I don't recommend buying the black joker valves for manual Raritan heads. The black one we installed also failed -- it just took a little longer than the red one before it. Raritan needs to figure this out if they want to sell this model of heads.

      Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

      Don't buy the pink joker valve. We rebuilt our two heads at same time and the pink joker valves lasted 5 weeks. I just spoke to Raritan tech support, and was advised that manual heads (PHII) can use the black Raritan joker valve with the cross structure. W. Marine Model # 257092 | Manuf. # C254 It's for electric models but can be used on manual pumps and is more durable.

          Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

          These devices use to last for years. Lately I have replaced several of them over and over again with hte life expectancy of just 6 weeks. After the "duck bill" deforms slightly preventing the creation of vacumn the head becomes useless. On one boat I have replaced the same joker 4 times in 7 months. THis is totally unacceptable and calls to Raritan act like this is new to them but I have sevral others reprting the same issue.

          • Product doesnt suck

          Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

          THese are very simple rubber products. They use to last for years. Lately if I get 2 months out of one its a plus. The Product slightly deforms allowing air to be drawn in and thus preventing evacuation of the bowl. Not sure if its a new manufacturer or new rubber they are using but it DOES NOT LAST. THe design is decades old Seems they can do alot better then this by now.

            Comments about Raritan Joker Valve:

            This replacement valve is the only one available. I've had some last for years and others for just a few months. It may not be the fault of the valve but the design of the joint holding the valve (should be a four bolt union rather than a two bolt). Others have stated that the X-style valve (C-254) last longer and works better but I do not know if it's a direct replacement.
