Wilcox Crittenden -- stamped with 1 1/4 on inside of cap. The O-ring is 1½" ID x 3/32" thick. Talking with them, they know nothing about these older deck fills, i.e., why do my o-rings get chewed up in six months, why the o-ring thickness changed to a thicker o-ring (wider groove in cap), etc.
Phoenix P5432A. Uses P82 washerless cartridge. O-ring for spout is a #11 (3/4" x 9/16" x 3/32").
Scandvik model 10443. Chrome flex hose (Scandvik 10286) is 6' long. I modified the sprayer holder by adding a small set screw threaded through the faucet body into a groove I cut on the sprayer. This setup eliminates the sprayer moving around from side to side while underway yet it's still easily removed for showering.
Do not keep the sprayer under pressure. The flex chrome hose will explode.
The connection to the faucet is via rigid supply tubes (copper) using a compression fitting. I had the rubber compression fitting blow off (10/2010). Replaced them with brass compression fittings.
Holding tank -- triangular height (22" high, 21" base, 25" hypotenuse, 15" long). Volume is about 2 cubic ft. (~15.75 gallons). Vent hose is 5/8" x 8ft. (hose & through hull new, 8/1999)
Raritan PH head (old design with multi-turn inlet valve). I removed the LWS spring on the input (9/98), which allowed more water into the head. I replaced the pump unit with the PHII pump assembly (3/1999). Rebuild kit: PHRKIIC.
Inlet pipe: 3/4" ID barb
Outlet pipe: 1 1/2" ID barb
According to Raritan, each pump stroke (i.e., up and down) of the PHII moves approximately 1 pint (approximately 1 gallon in 10 seconds). With 1½" ID hose, 1 pint is 16" length of hose.

Raritan Lectra/San MC (installed 5/2001), serial number MC 004281 0900. Rebuilt 6/2009 -- electrode pack, motor seals.
Seawater -- 4.3 oz. salt per gallon of water (~4% salinity). Solar salt dissolves more readily than table salt and is cheaper! Add ½ cup salt per flush in brackish water.
10-12 pump strokes delivers about 1 to 1 1/4 gallons.
According to Raritan, use the Raritan Concentrate to deodorize and lube the system. Either use the metered system (TWK Kit) or add the concentrate to the salt tank.
Every six months, use muriatic acid (31% HCl) to clean the system per the instruction sheet.
The salt tank should be above the water line with a valve on the output to regulate the salt flow into the toilet. Too much salt will burn out the electrode pack!
To test the electrode pack, measure the voltage drop across the shunt on the control module (1" x 3" metal on forward side of tank). During the treatment cycle, the voltage should be between 16 and 26 millivolts. If the reading is noticeably less than 16 millivolts, the electrode pack is probably bad. You can buy Raritan Lectra/San parts from www.holtmarinesystems.com in Chester, MD.
I replaced the electrode pack on 8/8/02. The voltage reading was 11 mV. I replaced it again in 6/2009. The reading was 9.8 mV.
Replaced the macerator motor in 9/2012. The motor failed by effluent leaking into the shaft seal. The replacement part is 32-101AW ($240), which includes the motor, shaft seals, and shaft bushings. Raritan said that there's no reason to replace the cover gasket. I also replaced all the cover screws with Philips screws to make assembly/disassembly easier.

Fuses: MDL 6.25, MDL 30, MDL 35 (only available at Fawcetts and Raritan). I replaced the MDL 35 fuse with an ATC 35 amp fuse.

Forward Tank - 64 gallons (measured, standard, not imperial). Clorox 2 TBSP.
Aft Tank - 25 gallons (measured, standard, not imperial). Clorox 1 TBSP
Recommended Clorox addition from Clorox web site -- 1 teaspoon (1/6 oz or 5 ml) per five gallons (however, increase this to per 10 gallons of water for better taste). One cap full is one tablespoon (TBSP).
With the family on board and showers everyday, we average 2 gallons per person per day.
