Here are the pictures of the sewer solution stock out of the box ready to attach to a 1" PVC pipe.

Yup. Looks just like my 2+ year old one. The fitting on the end is a 1" Street Ell in plumbing terms. Dead standard item...

Sewer solution to home sewer-so difficult?

Finally got around to using my sewer solution for the first time. I purchased a 100ft 3/4 diameter hose from Lowes, and cut the ends off which allowed the SS fittings to fit right inside. A little silicone spray helped the process along. I also installed a PVC shutoff for flushing using plastic threaded fittings with barb fittings on each end to slip into the hose. Everything was fitted with hose clamps. I plan on doing the same with a plastic tee at some point for attaching my grey water, but my Lowes doesn't carry a 3/4 barbed tee for some reason.

Worked great considering it was pushing through 100 ft of hose. The only issue I came across was a little leakage at the SS and black water valve connection with the tank valve CLOSED when doing the finally flushing of the hose. As the water pressure increased there was a very small drip at the connection point, but by that point it's clean water so not a big concern. Plus the drop was very slight. There were absolutely ZERO leaks with the tank valve open.

Sorry to revive this old thread, but you all seem like the experts on the Sewer Solution. I have about 45 feet to travel with a two foot rise at the end (so that is a net of a one foot rise from the tank drain outlet on the trailer).

My question is simple: will the sewer solution work with such a long run with a slight climb?

Thanks!

A run that long works for me.

Poop runs downhill. You'll need a pump/macerator if you intend to move it uphill.

I've run mine uphill more than you're talking about, and I had no problems at all.

How does this device flush the black tank better than the fitting built into the Airstream? I own a sewer solution but have never used it. Perhaps I should...just need to know the benefits. Thanks.

It doesn't flush the track better, that nor what it's designed to do. But it will empty you're tank when you are further away from your sewer com connection, and depending on you available water pressure, it will push the crap uphill.

Thanks. So far I have not needed to push crap uphill. I do have a question about the Black tank flush fitting. Does that do anything other than fill the tank with water?

The black tank flush with a standard Sewer Solution is simply a reversal of the interior nozzle to have it squirt back in the direction of either the gray water or the black water tank. It will only very partially fill either tank. You determine which tank by having the appropriate trailer flush valve open.

As mentioned above and in a thread long ago (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f444...tml#post712081), we have set up our Sewer Solution for positive backwashing of the tanks. In that part of the system with significant water pressure in it, we have hose clamps in place, as the picture in that thread shows.

No matter what you do, all the Sewer Solution does is fill the tank to one extent or another and then that water can drain (or be pumped) out again.
