Thanks for the link!
I would take some snoop to all the fittings to check for leaks and then if thats not it I would replace the duck bill valves in the vac pump units

The duckbills were supposedly replaced just a couple of months ago.

After looking at what the seals, switch and installing a new pump costs it looks to cost about the same to put in a Tecma toilet.
