Black water flush

The first couple of years we had our 23' Safari when you hooked up the black water flush you can hear the ponding of the water jets, now its silent. Any ideas on whats wrong or suggestions? Thanks

At Alumapalozza, Tim from Airstream Corporation stated that the backflush is a use it or lose it item. That if not used consistently it will become clogged and there is nothing that can be done to get it working again.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. We use it everytime we camp with the exception of about 4 months out of the year.

You may not get it back without dropping the tank but you should still try. Fill it with water and pour some bleach in there when you’re not using it (down the toilet). Let it sit for a few days and drain the tank. Try the flush and if it does not work then fill again. Let sit for a few more days. If it still does not work, leave the black water drain open and hook up the hose to the flush. Let sit for a while. In this mode I would not want to leave unattended as the clog may not let go and you would not want to come back to find a busted hose, on the inside, has soaked your unit.
