When you take the plastic cap off your San T Flush, does water spill out?

I am trying to determine if my check valve is defective. When I open my San T Flush to attach my hose, about a 1/4 cup of water spills out. Do others experience the same?

Yep. I put a garden hose shut off valve on mine and hold a can under it to catch the flow.

Rex - I installed one of those plastic "click" hose connectors permanently on the tank hose fitting, and the male side of it on the hose I use to flush the tank. When I prepare to flush, it is a simple "push-click" to hook up the hose.

I always get a little dribble from the fitting when I disconnect, but it is fresh water. I suspect it is just the water from the check valve to the hose connection.

John's right as usual. Mine is the fresh water draining out of the tubing before the check valve.

Yeah, mine dribbles for a little while too but it's always clear, clean-looking, odorless water.
