Flow Jet Waste Tank Pump

Been using one of these for years. All you need is a 12v battery, garden hose (used for only this purpose and nothing else), and your home sewer clean-cut. In my case, my sewer clean-out location is between my washer and dryer located in the garage. To make it work, I removed the sewer access cap, drilled a hole in the cap, and epoxied (putty epoxy) in a garden hose fitting. Attached my hose and now I can pump my waste tanks at home.

I've been using one on both my old and now new motorhome.

I have a 10 ft, 3/4" always connected hose for camp ground dumping and 3, 25' lengths of flat roll 1" PVC hose for home and family yard camping.

I carry the 3" stinky slinky as a backup, but use the pump, mounted in the waist valve compartment, exclusively.

I find it useful for deciding which way to pull into a site. Using a regular sewer hose can force only one approach unless you have a really long one. Pulling in forward is not a problem if you can run 50 to 75 feet of 3/4 to 1 inch hose over to the sewer. Also a must if you are boondocking and need to pump into a blueboy to transport your waste.

Ours does the job for us (4 years now) when we have a campsite with an uphill sewer run - and we 'found' two this past summer. I carry a spare cutter, gasket and plastic hose part of the body but can see no use for them ever after lots of use.

Great little device. Came in handy when I had a house fire spending 2 months in TT in back driveway. However the o ring that comes in the plastic bag IS A SPARE. Don't do what I did: didn't read directions, put it in pump, attached pump to sewer outlet, was very hard to turn on but I forced it, by hand,, and snapped the ear lugs off the pump. Called manufacturer explained the incident, he was very patient and, didn't laugh at me. Yes I double o ringed the bonnet, he sent me a new nose for the pump. NO CHARGE ! That's customer service. One more mistake, pump has a flush connection. I was using it to water down the flow, kept blowing fuses, 4 of them till I started to think about what I was doing. Yep my watering down the flow was going against pump flow. No i'm not always this ………… just in a hurry. LOL
