    I have had a durso standpipe installed in my 90 for around 6 mos. and recently it seems to be flushing constantly. There is a hole in the top cap with an airline and valve connected to regulate the water level. That has been working great with regular maintenance but the last week or so I can't get the water to level out. Any advise?

    Sounds like the valve or airline have crud in them. Try flushing them out or replacing them.

    I have already cleaned and replaced both the airline and valve, still had the same problem.

    Does the end of the drain going into the sump happen to be submerged? If it is, it could cause backpressure and create the flushing that you are experiencing.
