2008 Hunter 27 Toilet/Head backing up

I have a 2008 Hunter 27..

Has anyone had a problem with the toilet backing up? Everytime we flush it ,, minutes later it comes back up? Someone said I need to clear my check valve no idea how to do this??

You need to replace the joker valve. On most heads it is located where the waste line meets the bowl. Between the bowl and the hose you will find the joker. Remove it and replace. The new joker will [likely] include an installation slip providing specific directions.

This is an example for Raritan: RARITAN JOKER VALVE Shop.Sailnet.com - sailing resources, shopping, sail, blogs

Here is a Jabsco example: Joker / Check Valve Kit* [apologies Sailnet: I couldn't find a Jabsco joker in your store]

Start by flushing as much water as you can to clear the line. In any case, have a large bucket at the ready - wear rubber gloves. The waste in the hose will discharge in your direction. Depending on your head manufacturer, removing screws or hose clamps is all of the mechanical effort. The rest is just... well obnoxious!
