Black tank washers

Just curious. My '99 has a valve to put water into the black tank. Does anyone know if this just fills the tank from the bottom, the top, or sprays water to actutally wash/sprays the interior or sides of the tank?

I've always assumed it was a pipe with spray nozzels pointing in every imaginable direction !
And if that assumption is good enough for me......... it's good enough for you !!

I assume the same WG, I just don't know for sure. Would you be willing to come to Fl, sit in my black tank and test our therory?

Are you still in BC covered in snow?

I've got a bad back. I'd have to 'lay' in your black tank .

I'm on the coast. No snow ......... YET!

The black tank riser will rotate and splash in every direction.

Hi John, while I do not know the specifics of your black tank system I'll bet there's a lot of commonality between them from brand to brand I suggest you open YouTube and search: "How to dump and clean an RV black tank". I found this extremely helpful. I'm not too proficient at copying/pasting links with my iPad or I would have here - sorry.

Our last two DSDP's (2000 and 2002, both bought new) have come with the rinsers. I've used ours only a couple times in all those years of ownership. No need to if you keep chemicals in it and dump correctly.

Ok, thanks. So there must be a pedistal inside the center of the tank that does this? I've looked down the hole when doing this, all I've ever seen is the water rising. Of course I don't know if the hole I'm looking down is the center of the tank.

I appreciate the replies. It's really no big deal as when I decide to flush the tank, I just fill it with fresh water and flush again. I was just curious as to the physical layout inside the tank, which is just me wanting to know every detail of my coach.

If you really want to know drain your tank. Then hook up black tank flush. Go inside and have someone turn it on while looking down the toliet.

Dont know about John's, but on my 36', it's not quite a straight shot from the toilet into the tank. I cant see what the tank flush is doing from above.

I replaced our black tank flusher this last spring due to the old one leaking. A new one costs about $27 at CW in Mission, TX. It is a bulkhead mounted unit with a "spinner" on the inside that directs water in about 6 or 8 directions while spinning due to water pressure.
Our coach is a 1989 that we purchased about three years ago. The old spinner was locked in position by the previous owner in an attempt to stop water dripping. After two seasons of use, ten months of snowbirding, and not using chemicals I ran the new flush spinner three times and all I got was a half-dollar chunk of something that looked like a piece of rust. The tank flush spinner really does the job!!

I did that, all I saw was the water rising in the tank, no sprays or streams could be seen. If it does have some kind of rotating sprayer, it's probably froze up.
