Good thread. I've only been Airstreaming for two seasons, and hadn't heard of the Sewer Solution. Looks like something I should add to my tool box...

Look into it, but also be aware that it does come on sale occasionally. I did not pay full price for it

I agree with Jammer, that is why we carry both, and end up using the stinky slinky about 95% of the time, but when needed, the SS is worth it's weight in Aluminum.

The "sewer solution" is useful for situations involving longer runs and mild uphill grades where water is readily available. It is also one of several good alternatives for full hookup sites.

The real problem isn't the ss but the hose provided, those high tower spring with a short hose that has a 90 degree elbow without a way to hook hose on make it impossible to use as a suppliment to flushing, it can only do a washdown of area if you miss;(

AS built in water flush of black tank also requires a male hose fitting to attach so that it can use the pressure to rinse.

I'd like to use a SS at home to drain my waste tanks rather than take a dozen trips to the powder room toilet with a 5 gal bucket. Can't find the darn sewer clean out for my house.

I don't full time but I do use the sewer solution flusher when I dump the black tank. I have a setup with a double hose valve and a couple short hoses that I connect to the AS tank flusher and the sewer solution flusher so I control where the water goes. If I need to push something out of the tank I use the SS flush. The AS flush helps break up what's on the tank.

I also like that the SS is a lot easier to store and deploy than the slinky. I don't like crawling under the trailer to reach the AS built in slinky storage tube. I have an unused slinky in there just in case.
