Using valves on the drain is a bad bad idea. Splitting the drain and one valve is ok, but with 2 you are asking for your tank to overflow. You are using the valves to back water up in your drain line to keep it from burping. So if anything partialy plugs up either valve the water level will build up even higher, when it gets to the tank level the tank will overflow.
