I am a weekend sailor on Lake Michigan. The head is a pretty critical piece of equipment on a larger sailboat. I flush a cap full into the head after each sail. On distance cruises I put in about a cap full a day or as needed. It keeps the head pump working mechanism and seals from getting dried out and sticky. This is an inexpensive and practical way to keep the head pumping freely and reduce maintenance cost for pump rebuild/replacement.

                    the Groco HF toilet is a 1984 and this head lube makes it work like new. Easy to use , add a cap or two to the bowl water and pump, you can feel the difference after the first stroke,

                    Comments about West Marine Head Lube:

                    We use this product on our boat. It lubriates the hand pumped toilet really well. When we can't find it to buy in stores, we use cooking oil that only gums up the mechanics rather then silky lubricates like HeadLube. Not worth using the cooking oil. Need to order HeadLube.

                      Get yourself a plastic measuring cup and just use recommended amount for your application. It is that easy.
