I have a pex loop under my bath sink that comes up through the floor with what looked like a check valve at the top before returning back down through the cabinet floor. There was a leak there recently, and the repair guy replaced what I think was a check valve with regular fittings. No more leak at that point, but my tank rinse spills a ton of water when the hose is disconnected. Ideas?
Your tank rinse goes up to to that vacuum breaker under the sink. When you disconnect...the water in the line from the connection point to the vacuum breaker drains out. Very normal. It's designed to prevent holding tank water from being able to siphon into your water hose...if left connected. If the volume of water increased after he "fixed the leak"...I'd worry that he did NOT install a vacuum breaker...and now you're siphoning water all the way from the spray nozzle in the black tank.
