Maybe have an electric valve to vent the boiler, when the water valve is open
That might fix the problem caused by the "5-8 seconds" of vacuum

That's just overflow from the air lock sitting on the lid.

I had to dump it all. What a mess. I loaded it all up in my Dr power wagon. Made it half way through the field. Hit a bump and.the dumper tripped and blam-o. I wish I had a video. Everything is on hold now. My youngest son is graduating high school so the focus is on his party. He will be leaving for marine boot camp early August.
