I have a San-T-Flush hookup for my black tank, but I'm not sure how to use it correctly. Do I use a pressure reducer like on the fresh water inlet? Or do I just hook up a hose and let it rip with the black tank valve open?

I looked at the San-T-Flush web site and there is no menthion of a pressure regulator. To the contrary it would seem that the use of a regulator would `reduce the force of the spray in flushing the tanks. Just mho.

I hook up the hose full pressure to flush. I bought a clear adapter to place between my sewer hose and the trailer pipe. When I dump, I turn on the flush line and let it flow for 30 seconds, then open the 4" valve and let it drain until it is down to a small flow coming out the line. Then I close the 4" valve and refill the black tank for a minute or two and open the 4" valve again. I repeat this proceedure 3-4 times until I see clear water coming out the sewer line thru the clear adapter. Then I dump my grey water last. That way the grey water helps clean the black residue out of the sewer line. I also just the flush to put some water back into the black tank to help desolve any junk left in the tank the flush didn't get out.

Sean,

I'll try to post pictures in the next day or so.
I've used this system since I bought my first RV. It takes a few minutes longer to dump, but I've never had a black tank problem. Guess it must work.

Clark:

After a bad time back long time ago, I ALWAYS flush my system at home out 5-6 times- the hose in the TH way, running inside, outside,inside,outside,inside, outside, inside, outside- just to be safe. If there's a easier way to do it, I'd be game!

You need to install a Sani-Flush in you trailer. It goes into the black tank and runs to the side of the trailer via a hose. Just hook up the garden hose and start flushing the black tank while dumping. It has a spray pattern to it that covers most of the tank inside. It elimates running a hose and magic wand inside the trailer.

They sale them at most RV parts stores.
