Macerator pump gaskets 6.99 no shipping

I have a macerator system installed in my coach and have had to replace the paper thin gaskets more than once. (My water bay is underneath the full wall slide and involves crawling to service the tanks..also have installed electric valves.) I am currently using clean dump and the gasket tore when the pump loosened over time.

I could not get the parts in any reasonable time. My solution was to get some paper gasket material from the auto store and make my own gaskets. The homemade gaskets are much thicker and should be more durable. And for $6.99 and no shipping I have a 1000 gaskets.

I am really not sure why the gaskets are so thin. And why the oem thinks you are going to spend a week waiting for parts when you have an issue.
