I'm more of a lurker than a poster.
We bought a Sewer Solution 9 (?) years ago. There was a L O N G line at the dump station with a lot of Flying Monkeys (Foxtrot Mike, Fsomething Morons) in front of us one time. I had been introduced to a SS by a bored COE CG host that was very friendly.
The house we had at the time had a clean out port on the septic tank and I hooked up the SS to the 2-10 foot hoses that I lengthened with 1 inch PVC pipe for the other 20 feet. Had to run many gallons of water to pump the effluent up the slight incline. We solved that by not backing the camper all the way down the slope.
This house, I use 54 feet of 1 inch PVC, 2 each 20 foot sections with slip PVC unions and the same 20 feet of 3/4" green hose. I have noticed that since it's all downhill. I really don't have to put the water on the SS itself most of the time, but it does make it faster if I do. (and yes, we had a clean out port installed on this tank)
We have a built in tank spinner on this camper and by using the Gardena quick connects, the water hose can be easily switched from the SS to the spinner quickly.
As a brief aside, I am a mechanical contractor that install, service, and maintain HVAC, plumbing, and sewerage systems. I'm careful with what I do but do not wear gloves. I do wash my hands thoroughly after I'm done.
