Sanicon macerator question

Have one of these in my Monaco. I will be staying on my daughters property this summer and I will not be able to reach her septic with my normal sewer hose. Can I attach a garden type hose to he end of my sanico unit and pump the stuff over? Can I pump black water? How far can the hose run?

Yes, you can extend the normal Sanicon hose with a garden hose. Just make sure you never use it for fresh water after that. I think you can go a hundred feet or more, if it's level ground. Yes, that works for black water, since it'll all be ground up in the macerator.

The manual says:

If you wish to extend the evacuation hose, connect a 3/4 in (1.9 cm) garden hose to the end of the nozzle. Do not extend the hose beyond 150 ft. (45.72 m).
