it warms my heart to read another having problems with the poo pot. you're in mediocre but eager hands here at sailnet, and we'll try and help.
as for water rushing in were poo fears to tread, you are missing an antisiphon loop. basically a loop of hose coming from the tank outlet that has it's apogee above the waterline and has an antisiphon fitting on it. i would also reconsider the flexible tank unless it's very small; they do not have great longevity from i've heard, and a ruptured septic tank aboard is as bad as it gets.
