In response to Re: sloan valves and air pressure
: In our church, we have a strange phenomena. When we flush the sloan valve commodes, air is shooting up into the bowl, as well as water. It produces bubbles, and even some splashing. We have replaced one sloan valve, and it made no difference. We had the drain lines cleaned by roto rooter and it made no difference.

: We do have a a backflow valve on the entire water system.

: We have not observed air in any other water faucets, or other commodes that have a regular tank.

: Thanks!

Sounds like you have them opened too far. Turn them off, hold the handle down and slowly open the valve until the water starts running. Release the handle and let the valve shut off. Then adjust as needed.
