    Raritan Elegance or Atlantes?

    I finally started building the new forward head (where the dinette used to be) and have decided not to rebuild the vacuflush I had in the old fwd head. By the time I rebuild the pump, seals, water valve and vac switch it will be over $500...

    I know many have been happy with the Atlantes heads but what about the Raritan Elegance? Seems to be $300 cheaper...

    Here are a few pics of the new head under construction. Much bigger than the old one . 40x24 Shower will be behind the door. Empty space under the counter is for a vented washer dryer combo

    I put two Elegance in last year and they seem to be very nice units and don't use much water. The thing I would have done differently is to get the tall units instead of standard. It's a long way down there.

    Nine trouble free years with the Elegance. It's the bomb. Best time to buy is the Defender spring sale next month.

    I don't think that they offer the 32 volt Atlantes anymore. Fantastic product. all freshwater. got the oversize bowl in the master. get the biggest you can fit in there.

    Great advice on the tall Elegance, where were you guys when I bought mine. I ended up putting a big laminated teak block under mine, which works just fine, but I agree they are great toilets. John

    I installed the eleganze large bowl, tall and put a three inch mahogany block under it, maximum comfort and never any trouble. Eight years later and five star recommendation.
