that is interesting! a good way to keep a good water level for sure.

since our kitchen is in the rear and the bath is in the middle, we have two seperate gray tanks, i personally wish they'd just put a bigger black tank in the middle for all of it. like you said, better way to keep a good water level in the black tank.

so after reading through this thread, and having to deal with a similar situation that the PO left the TT in, mines sitting outside now full of water and ridex. probably wait till saturday or sunday to hook it up to the clean out on the sewer line and dump it. might just do it twice, i really need to get that clear 3" extension so i can be sure when i'm 'runnin clean'

Besides adding water and driving around add a bag of ice and drive around. The ice cubes will help break things up (as long as you have enough water in the tank) and then dump after ice melts.

If you continue to have problems with your black and graywater tanks, you might try the GEO Method. Google it. You use detergent and Calgon with water and TP and waste will become unattached to tank walls. These are safe ingredients to put in your tanks. I have tried this with good results.
