got get a pumpout and cover up the vent line so it has to suck water out of the toilet (assuming your overboard discharge is closed). Then rebuild or replace. It is most likely the joker valve. It s the last valve out to the tube leading out to the head. You cannot remove it without making a mess. Lots a bleach and a good gas mask is suggested. Incidentally, the cost of replace versus repair is close to teh same. Many just replace.
