Re: Check Valves on Heads

What I did when faced with that situation--besides flushing a lot--was to hook my shop vac to the vent at the top of the tank. Just to be clear, the vac wasn't sucking waste out of the tank, it was just creating suction in the air space of the tank. This pulled the waste in the line into the tank. A lot less mess.
