Reasons to KEEP your existing head system.

Galley Maid Head Pumps


The designers at Hatteras, Bertram, Viking and others had many considerations in specifying Galley-Maid® toilet systems for their 45-70 ft. yachts. For reasons of economy and simplicity they avoided central systems, and stayed with free-standing units. In central systems if the main pump fails all toilets are disabled. Free-standing toilet units have recently fallen out of favor due to increasing size of new yachts. This does NOT affect their effectiveness on YOUR boat.

Replacing the toilet system on your boat WILL cost many thousands of dollars. Benefits to be derived from replacement toilets are slim at best.
Keep your Galley-Maids®!!!

  1. Your Galley-Maid® head is the most aggressive on the market yet is nearly silent in operation. The pump unit is located below decks, allowing a very compact toilet unit in the accommodation. It incorporates a macerator, reducing risk of blockages.

  2. It is available in all voltages including 32Vdc, the predominant voltage found in older vessels.

  3. It won't turn on at all hours, disturbing you. Does not rely on vacuum storage which routinely develops leaks due to waste trapped in the rubber check valves, chronically starting the pump.

  4. With fresh or sea water operation, it consumes less than 1/2 gallon per flush, conserving both fresh water and holding tank capacity.

  5. No remotely-located components.

  6. When cycled at least weekly, it will deliver long, odor-free, reliable service.

  7. Simple, on-board repairs possible for most common maintenance issues.

  8. Prompt exchange or repair of damaged pumps.

  9. Only when you understand these pumps can you maintain and repair them. Unlike many systems on your boat, these pumps are manageable and field-repairable without specialized tools.
