oldcoot, I was talking about "toilet paper" that may have sloshed onto the sprayer and perhaps dried there.

That's what I was referring to, toilet paper, I just didn't put toilet, assuming it was understood to mean toilet paper. My mistake, I should not have been so lazy.

I have a hose connector that I use with an air compressor to clear the water lines for winterizing. I think I will connect that to the black water inlet and give it a shot and see if that will clear it.

Before I do that, I wonder if there is a "soft" line that I could rupture with the air pressure? Anyone have any idea?

Thanks, Forrest

Forrest, even the clear bowl water filter is rated to 125 psi, only problem with the sprayer is designed to stay open all the time. Just take it easy building up pressure, gotta believe it will clear easily with air.

These are a few picturew I took what I found stuck in the spray nozzle.
Not on the tanlk side but actually puched back into the spray nozzle and the hose outside of the blacke water tank. I wa sunable to blow it out with water and had to take apart.
By the way that is brown dirty tpoilet paper and not poop.
And I use the septic tank 2 ply toilet paper with lots of water per flush.

It actually looks like it some how got sucked back into the nozzle.

That's how I cleared my cleanout. My pressure was set at 100psi and I just hit it with a momentary blast a few times. The line will probably have water in it and a back flow may occur till it breakes loose. The back flow will not be sewer water. I did this at the output line side of the backflow valve (bypassed it). Have not had any issues since. No damage occured. Good luck.

Hard to believe that much TP got in there. Any chance some joker stuffed something into the water inlet, then the water pressure pushed it in there?

I don't think the back flow valve used by the Fac.will stand large PSI. The Pex tubing will hold but not the valve seat/spring assy. Cheap plastic valve,replace with brass valve. The after market rinse assy.that use clear tube and barbed fittings are dependent on the installer for large PSI,also not sure they come with a good backflow preventer. The reason for (Stuff?) in the nozzle may well be the backflow valve is (Not) working,thus pulling,sucking the (Stuff??) back thru the tubing. Youroo!!

Lou actually this is the first time I found it clogged and removed it.
I did have a second time with a little less but the same.
I also thought someone did it during install. The last time before reinstalling I turned ont he water and flushed the line before hooking back up the the black tank nozzle.
Lets hope thats it .

After the second time I recieved a replacement backflow valve from the manuf. I explained to them in an email what was happening and they sent me a replacement valve. That was nice.

Lets hope this doesn't happen again. We will keep you posted if it does.
