Black Water Hose Extension

We have a 2020 Newmar Essex with a Sani-Con system. Both toilets have a separate macerator, so only slurry goes into the blackwater holding tank. We park our coach at our daughters home, and the closest inlet to her septic system is 100 feet away.

The Sani-Con hose attached to the coach has a garden hose adapter at the end to extend the dump line. Does anyone know if the Sani-Con system will push the waste water 100' over level ground, or should i put an in-line supplemental pump on the garden hose to "keep things flowing?"

I have a portable tank but 38 gallons of "stuff" weighs over 300 lbs. That's a lot of "stuff" to schlep to the septic tank.

Thanks for any help/!

Supposedly can pump UP to 9' or OUT to 100'

I have never used one.....

My Flojet Portable can easily handle 100' with a 2' rise

You have the SaniCon Turbo. You could probably fight fires with it. The turbo really pushes the fluid, especially since you have the two macerator toilets and there is nothing to grind. I think you'll be fine, just use a 5/8" or 3/4" garden hose.

Thanks for the advice. Not sure I’ll be fighting any fires with that stuff, but it’s good to know…
