Leak during black water flush

I have a 2005 Journey that leaked fresh water during a black water tank flush. It seemed to be coming from the floor in front of the bathroom. I also found wet carpet under the rear dinette bench. I puled the wood wall panel behind the bench and located an anti-syphon valve. A quick test reveled this valve to be the source of the leak. Being a cheep fix it yourself kind of guy, I removed and disassembled the valve to find calcium deposits preventing the valve from closing under pressure. So a good soak in Calcium Lime and Rust remover (CLR) and a scrubbing with a toothbrush brought it back to life. Because it is gravity operated, I repositioned it so it stands more upright.

It is working as it should for more than a year.
