Holding Tank

On system you describe you are correct that only vented loop you should have (many boats don’t) is on inlet for toilet (to flush head) I think. If I understand correctly your system will have 4 lines or hoses:
•Ύ” inlet from thru hull to head (flushing water)
•1.5” From head to Top of holding tank (toilet discharge)
•1.5” From Bottom of tank to deck fitting (pump out)
•Ύ” From top of tank to vent
But I’m back to thinking tank (& thus inlet) must be lower (or level) then head in this system again.
