A1) What improvements does the Compact II have over the older Compact?

The major improvement is that the intake hose connects at the rear of the pump rather than the front, for a cleaner, more streamlined appearance. The Compact II has a “T” shaped handle for a better grip, and the Compact II pump has slightly more capacity than on the Compact.

A3) No water stands in the bowl, why not?
Raritan toilets are not by themselves designed to hold water unless a vented loop is installed in the discharge line with the top of the loop generally 4 inches higher than the top of the bowl. The higher the loop the more water will remain after each flush. See the specific toilets installation manual for specifications and loop height limitations.Note: Vented loops may need to be installed higher for safety reasons (see installation manual for further details)
