Howdy and welcome to the forum. What brand is your toilet (SeaLand?) and how old is it? What was the fix you used before?

Air leaks?

One of the things if it's got some "Millage" on it is you may need new seals, I know I do.

But Air leaks? It uses water. (I thought)

Yes it is a Vac U Flush systems. We had new seals put on, new guts, everything. It works for 2-3 months than is gets a leak. You can always hear a small hissing sound.

Over time, calcium deposits build up on the flush ball seal preventing it from making a tight seal. In the past I have used citric acid to clean these deposits. Most home centers carry it. If this doesn't not work the seal may need to be replaced.
