Thanks Jim, I replaced the entire valve set within the past 3 months.

I've had a new joker leak -- sometimes is doesn't matter it's all it takes is "something" that doesn't belong there inadvertently pumped thru. getting stuck, and holding the joker open.

No carp - actually it was a tiny tapping screw that somehow must have fallen into the bowl?  I HOPE it didn't get there via another pathway.
I guess if it's young enough, a carp could get thru :rolling -- unless you have a screen   

I did once pick up an eel that blocked the seawater cooling screen while delivering a C42 from Baltimore to Long Island!

For what it's worth, I can verify that you can get water into the holding tank via the vent line... I was down below working on my system and had the vent line disconnected.  We had a pretty hard rain and water started running out of my vent line!  I ran up top to take a look and the water just couldn't get through that tiny scupper fast enough, resulting in the water level rising high enough to reach and flood the vent.

The amount of water wasn't insignificant, but I can't imagine how much rain you'd need to fill an empty holding tank.
