We have Raritan heads. The aft head is one of there fancy electric heads. The forward one is a manual. Well it has been about 5 years since I rebuilt the forward pump and replaced the gaskets. Well, it is time, maybe past time. The biggest problem is with the shaft seal on the top of the pump shaft. It puts out a couple drops ever pump. With it being attached to the Electra scan, that means 20 pumps per flush. That is somewhere between 20-40 drops which equal a small puddle of intake water.

So beside doing the laundry, getting the mail and doing this blog. I have that wonderful project. The laundry is half done, the blog is almost finished and the mail I can not get till this afternoon. I did have a couple little projects to do, but they are done. The tool box is out. IT IS TIME. Oh, next week being the 4th, I may be a day late on writing this blog. Assuming I survive the head project.
