Black water flush has a one way valve so anything on the "inside" of the valve drained into the tank.
anything on the outside dribbled out on the ground already .

I actually squirt RV AF into the black tank through the turboflush.
Overkill; maybe. But I don't want water trapped in that expensive check valve.

My outside shower head is right next to my city water and turboflush connections. I bought a brass fitting (male 1/2 inch NPT to male hose) and a brass one way check valve that I hook to the hose wand.

The wand can reach both the city water inlet and the turboflush inlet.

With the system pressurized with pink; I just open the valve on the shower faucet with the wand hooked to the city inlet and then the turboflush inlet.

PS - again I can't take the credit for the idea or the photos. Just passing it along from the Herkbrary.
