The anti-siphon valve is not there for a vacuum breaker. It’s there to prevent waste from getting into your fresh how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally water supply. When mine leaked, I called my dealer who had me run the backflush how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally and then turn the water off. About a minute or 2 later the water started dripping how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally from the bell at the top of the anti-siphon valve. He had me disconnect the hose and release the water. The drip quit. He had me hook it up again and run the how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally backflush. No drip while the backflush was running. Turned off the water and immediately disconnected the hose – no drips. I asked the dealer why it dripped and he said how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally as I turned the water off, the anti-siphon valve started to close and while it was partly how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally open the water went around the side of the valve how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally and out the top. I tried to argue that it was leaking then. He said no it was designed that way. I asked why. He said when the valve is closed and if the how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally black tank filled up under pressure like from a reverse how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally flo valve, waste would travel all the way to the convenience center how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally connection and if a hose was connected to the backflush how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally then into the hose and possibly all the way to how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally the faucet. I asked where the waste was going to go when how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally the water is off and the valve is closed? He said out the top of the valve as it how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally is designed. I said "into my bathroom and garage"? He said "yup, better there than in the water supply". I don’t want e coli in my drinking water.

It really is an air gap/check valve. We have been full time for over six years and how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally have flushed our black tank weekly the entire time, and never had an issue with this valve. When I flush, I connect the hose, turn on the water and when the flush is completed, I turn off the water, and disconnect the hose. The water in the black flush line drains back from how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally the air gap/check valve out where I connect the hose, and the water on the black tank side of the how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally valve drains into the black tank, and this way, there is no or very little water in the flush how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally line. For those who have removed the valve and use a how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally check valve at the hose inlet, there is always water in the line, and for those who have to winterize, they must remember to winterize this line also. When these valves are installed, they must be at a level higher than anything in how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally the black tank system, which is higher than the top lip of the toilet.

How did you backflush the gray tank?

When you are running your backflush, you need to have your black tank valve open at how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally all times to prevent over-filling. Except when the black tank gets empty, you can close the black tank valve and allow the how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally tank to fill some to flush it out, but you need to count our watch the clock and how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally get the valve back open to avoid overfilling. On my 50 gal black tank I can fill thru how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally the reverse-flo valve and thru the black tank backflush at the how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally same time for about 2 1/2 minutes which will probably fill the tank about half how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally full. That’s enough for me to get a good rinse. I would never fill my black tank full to flush how to get rid of acne scars fast naturally it.
