Hi all, a few weeks back I posted, requesting assistance with my head
system. I had toilet waste coming back into the bowl, filling it up while underway and spilling all over the place...Very nasty!!!...Well, at the time I had some great responses from CF colleagues, mostly suggesting I change the 'Joker' valve - in my case, on the TMC head
its called a 'flapper' valve.
After the traumatic experience of 'going in' and performing valve replacement etc I found that the problem has not gone away (and while I did replace it anyway, my flapper valve looked fine and not really in need of replacing)...
I have noticed that my waste outlet hose from the toilet which goes to a small treatment unit, doesn't seem to have a very high bend in it (i.e. it is almost 'downhill' from the treatment unit). This means that there will always be a tendency for pushback on the flapper valve when there is any boat movement (whether stationary or underway).
My question is: Should the waste exit hose from the head take a high bend above the height of the treatment unit to reduce the possibility of back flow?...ie would this solve my problem or just put undue pressure on the electric pump
i'm not good at this stuff, so I really appreciate any help I can get.
