Doesn't the black tank flush have a back flow preventer?

I used the stainless pex pinch clamps and the Apollo one hand ratcheting tool. First time I've ever used pex and this tool made it a breeze. I had a total of 21 clamps and not one leak...amazing.

I'm also going to put a light in this area behind the docking station and put an observation window (plexiglass) in the panel so that I can turn on the light and periodically check for leaks. With a light and observation window, I can see the water heater, furnace, and all the plumbing behind the docking station. The bypass valve had been leaking for a while as well as it ceased half open/closed when I de-winterized it.
Here's a pic of the observation hole I created.

Also, we put frosting film on the entertainment center doors so that we can use that area for some real storage (most likely clothes) rather than useless knick knacks.

Don't know, but than again I never looked. Figured for $5 I'd put one on at the end of my elbow that I keep on the black flush and be sure (I also only use one hose).

I do hope you rested after such a strenuous task.

BTW, that's more than I did.

They do, but how many times do you read where people have individual hoses just for the rinse? I can think of three people right off.
