I like the concept SD described as well. I suppose that it is more capable then the diverter valve right after the toilet, because the was SD described it, the tank can be emptied, which is not true if I leave it set up as is.
In my case, the seacock is right next to the toilet and the tank is well up forward, about 8 or 10 feet. To do that I would either need to run an additional hose back from the tank area to the seacock or add a new seacock more forward.
Realistically, I don't ever see myself discharging through the seacock, either directly from the toilet or from the tank, so I am not inclined to run the new hose or install a new seacock, at least not this season.
Since I'll never open the seacock, I am thinking I should wire tie it shut, wire tie the diverter valve shut and just use the diverter valve as a coupling. In the future I could easily add a vented loop between the toilet and the diverter valve, or replumb it as suggested above, if I ever think I'll need to discharge.
So I guess I'll add a vented loop between the intake pump and the bowl, but nowhere else.
Does this make sense?
