Who installed Sani-Con on grey tank?

i have a sani-con on black tank, i am thinking if i can have a T with manual diverter, it would be great to rinse grey tank as well. has anyone done that?

Not sure what you mean by 'rinse', but I drain both tanks with the Sani con.

Why? Add a little soap with a 1/4 to 1/2 tank of water once in a while before you head down the road and dump when you arrive. Much easier than reinventing the wheel.

do you have a sani con on each tank? to my knowledge, most people only installed one sani con on black tank. its primary purpose is to use pressured water to rinse out the deposit on the sensors. if you don't have a sani con on grey tank, you can drain but can't rinse, or add water from faucets and drain multiple times.

i like dennis' idea, that should do the trick

I think you may be confusing "sani-con" with something like a sani-flush. The Sani-con is a macerator pump that attaches to the end of the sewer drain. It grinds and pumps the contents of both the black and gray tanks to the sewer system depending on which valve you have open. It replaces the larger 3 inch sewer hose. The Sani-flush and various other similar type devices under different names is installed at the end of either tank, usually the black, and utilizes water pressure to spray any offensive contents off the sides and bottom of those tanks.
Having one installed on the gray tank is not the norm, but can be done and provide the same benefits.

Ahh, your talking about a black tank flush. Only have that on the black tank.
Sani-con is a macerator/ pump system, that pumps out both of your waste tanks thru a 1" hose. Can pump uphill if needed.

Um, maybe I don't understand what my Sani-con does:

I believe you are talking about San-T-Flush. it is a sprayer nozzle in your black tank that you hook a fresh water hose to and it cleans out your black tank after you have emptied it.

As others have said the Sani-Con system hooks in place of your three inch waste water dumping line and chops everything from both your grey and Black tank into small particle and then pumps them to the disposal tank.

I have both and both products work very well by the way.

Sewer Solution is a water based macerator and can aim water up into your open tank for a form of rinse. Just depends on which tank is being dumped at the time, on my rig.
