One or the other what? He pours in cups of water from the sink faucet. Again from his first post.

Re: Raritan PHII Sucking in Stuff from Holding Tank?

Thanks to all who responded. I guess I will try the easy way first. Disconnect the intake hose, clean it, and see what happens. If the problem continues, then a rebuild kit to stop the potential leak back through the piston ring. Anyone know what kit that might be? Does it have a number, a name? Thanks again. George

Re: Raritan PHII Sucking in Stuff from Holding Tank?

It does: Raritan PHII and PHEII Repair kit with U-cup piston seal (PHRKII)*-*Raritan* PHRKII - Raritan Repair Parts - Marine Heads - Plumbing/Ventilation - Boatersland Marine

Google is your friend :-)

BTW, don't forget to change the way you flush. Not running water routinely thru the inlet hose and, therefore, thru the holes at the top of the bowl is asking for trouble.

Bill
