Greetings,

I have a 4 inch (ID) black pipe sticking out of my new garage floor to dump my trailer's waste. No threads - just straight pipe. How would one terminate the pipe to accept the kits (IE Valterra EZ Coupler) that prevent odor and maintain an air tight seal?

This will be to a sewer drain. The pipe will be less than 2 feet from the trailer dump valve.

I've read many of ya'll have some form of dump on premise! Didn't know so many had them. They must be convienient? Any other gotchas? I'm trying to design it to be fairly leak proof!


Can only find parts for trailer side - nothing for garage/RV park side? Any ideas on where to find online?

Thanks in advanced.
Pat

You should find a 4" slip by female threads coupler at any home improvement store. You can also purchase the threaded plug for when it is not in use. Buy a small can of ABS glue for and air tight fit.

Yup . . . what he said. <$15 worth of parts. Just get a 4" (assuming it's4", not 3") PVC female NPT sewer coupling. Cut the pipe to a good length and smooth it with sandpaper. Swap on cleaner and glue, and install the pipe nipple. Be sure to get a cleanout cover to go in it when you're not using it.

We have 2 of them - one in the garage, and one in the line outside by the jumbo carport - we can acutally have both RV's hooked up simultaneously!!

Here's a picture of how I set up the dump into my septic. Same would apply to your garage opening.



Top coupling has a female glue fitting on bottom and threaded female fitting on top. Just unscrew the cap and your ready to dump!

Thanks everyone! Ya'll make it sound so easy!

RVThere are you telling me all I need is that top ring and use PVC cement to connect to pipe, then get a lid to screw on!? (Thanks for pics - well worth 1000 words!) That's too easy! And I can get that ring from Home depot / Lowes? I'm there.

I need to cut the pipe down (it's over 12" high) - would 3" be too low?

Thanks again - ya'll are great!

It's that simple!

I would cut your pipe down. If you keep it too high, there is a chance that the surge when you open your tanks to flush could pull the waste hose out.

Happy dumping!

Depending on where the pipe is located you may not want to cut it too low. If it might be in the way of any vehicle access it could be hit or broken. If that is the case you could be better off not gluing the sleeve onto the pipe, just pressure fit it so if necessary it can be changed.
