, daviddixon!

There are lots of reviews of Sewer Solution on iRV2, here is a search result. Sewer solution, like macarator pumps, allow you to use small hoses instead of the 3" stinky slinky. You'll find some people swear by them and some swear at them. We have had macerator pumps in our last two coaches and they come in handy when there isn't a normal dump station around, we use the 3" hose elsewhere. Others use them exclusively.

I have been using the Sewer Solution for 2 years now and I love it for the following reasons:
1. The hose is made of a thick pliable plastic that will probably last my RV lifetime. I have had several stinky slinkies and they all developed problems with leaks. Incredible as it may seem, one 3" hose had about 7 holes after a "light" hailstorm in Gillette, WY. THE SS hose seems indestructible. It can even withstand someone inadvertently stepping on it.
2. Ease of use. The hose is so much easier to handle. We just arrived at a fishing RV CG in Soldotna, AK and the sites are all set up for 5ers so the power, water and sewer are all on the opposite side of the RV is you want a Kenai River view from your windshield (and who wouldn't). I had no problem running the utilities under the coach with SS.
3. Easy storage. The more narrow hose is much easier to store and disconnect extensions when more length is required.
4. If we just overnight at a CG, I don't even connect the water to the unit.
5. It will go uphill to some degree when sites are not level.
6. SS has NO corrugated ridges so it is much easier to flush out.
7. The only reason I still keep my stinky slinky is if I need to dump quickly as in Quartzite, AZ on BLM land when there is a lineup of coaches behind you. The SS would take a little more time so consideration of others would be an issue.

can you use the water in your tank using the outside water/shower as the source of freshwater to run the macerator? This eliminates the need for an extra hose and needing to be close to a water outlet.

I've been using it for almost two years. I'm happy overall with it during this time. I have a 10' and a 20' hose, but most always use the 20' anyway. I also have two macerator toilets so my waste is already reduced down before flushing.

Pluses:

Saves ALOT of space when stored.
Easy to flush mouth of the combined grey/black tank valves.
Easy to flush the hose itself before removing.
No need for hose support, will push water upstream to dump.
After self rinsing, no stink and hose and attachments are clean.


Negatives:

It takes 8-10 minutes to dump out a 44 gallon black tank.
Seems to let sentiment stay in the bottom of the tank so a couple extra flushes are needed to clear it, a couple gallons of water at least each time.

Yes you can but the more volume and pressure the better it will work.
