And at times, it can smell just as bad as a black water.

This has been discussed before in other threads but I think it bears repeating, you can purchase an add-on dump valve at your local rv dealer, with the valve attached and closed you can open your grey water valve and black water valve and the 2 tanks will fill each other to level. Saves having to purchase a pump and hardware to pump it over or filling a bucket with grey water and dumping it in your toilet. It works great and I've used this method for many years to extend the time I can wait till having to dump. The valve only costs about $15.00 and is a snap to use.

i bet there has been alot worse things drained in the woods you cant drip oil on the ground but if you are building a road it's ok .i guess it depends on why you are draining ? i drain it to water the trees and grass so i'm sure it's legal. now if you are draining it just to get rid of it! that's illegal .like popping fire crackers it's not legal unless it's the 4th of july:facepalm :

Yep, and I'll bet if you look at your Taxifornia rules, you will find that you would be dumping toxic waste.

In Californicate EVERYTHING is toxic waste and against the law.
I can't imagine what folks put in their grey water to make it smell and be toxic. All our soaps are bio degradable and the water we use is mostly for rinsing things. I doubt that dribbling GREY water into your exhaust as you drive down the Highway will destroy the planet (except for here in the land of fruits and nuts ).

If it's not toxic waste and against the law, it causes cancer in mice. How does PETA get away with letting them test mice?

It's just Canadian mice that get cancer. Our little guys are OK.

We have one of these http://www.amazon.com/Camco-39062-Fl...995631&sr=8-17 and like Easyrider have been equalizing the gray and black tanks for a couple years now. It extends dry camping be two or three days and also provides a pretty good flush out system. The clear palstic part make it easy to see when things are clean and empty while dumping.

I think this is what you are talking about. I know nothing about it; just saw it mentioned in an post on the FMCA forum a few days ago with a link to this site.

The links to Thermasan documents were interesting, Thanks. I see the device also handled black tank contents. It also mentioned it was attached to the exhaust at its 'hottest point.' That's probably where the catalyst converter is now, one reason they aren't around anymore. I wonder what the 'miles per gallon' of waste liquid consumed was? I also didn't see a macerator, just a 'non-clogging, self cleaning screen' RIGHT.

I found the info to be interesting too, I was thinking of primarily just grey water
and to reduce the amount not as a total empty routine.
The info stated to use it an hour per person.
