Question Black water tank bypass?

I have an '80 A/S hooked up to water, septic system, and electric and I don't plan on moving it, SO, I'm thinking of bypassing the black water tank by running plastic pipe through the tank? Has anyone tried sommething like this? It would be nice to be free of the odor/deodorizer issues altogether. I'd rather not remove the tank, as I may one day want to sell the trailer.

I really don't think this will work. The typical RV toilet does not send enough water on each flush to properly dispose of solid waste. I think you would have problems moving the solids out of the system. If you changed to a regular residential toilet with a tank, then it might work. That would not do you much good on resale.

Tank in the way

The toilet sis directly on top of the Black tank. You would have to remove tank to get to bottom of toilet.
