Where do you guys have outside access to sewer line? In Michigan, anything outside would generally freeze in the winter. I was thinking about checking with a plumber, though, to possibly tie in a pipe to the garage, if possible.

Also, upon rethinking this original scenario, does anyone know how much force the macerator system discharges with? If it's a fairly slow flow, it would be ok to dump into toilet and allow toilet trap to work and allow contents to equalize without constant flushing. Otherwise, it may be to much work involved (see, I'm thinking of the DW, Karen. Good thing she doesn't read these posts and has a good sense of humor) Hose to bathroom is only a distance of about 10 feet inside door, so I could put down floor protection for that short distance if I decided to do it this way.

Rich,

I was thinking the same thing about outside access. We do, however, have direct access to the sewer in our laundry room (a screw plug a plumber can open to snake the sewer out - problem is it is mounted on a wall.


As for speed... When you go to the thetford site and read the specs on the Sani-Con Turbo it says it the "Pump can evacuate a 40-gallon tank of water in 50 seconds"

So even if the Sani-Con Box model is only half as fast, I think emptying in the toilet would be a VERY bad Idea ™

I can see Karen now Rich

TURN IT OFF!!! TURN IT OFF!!! TURN IT OFF!!!

Gasman, sometimes there is a sweep tee in line between the house and the street so if you have a clog between house and street you can run a snake in it. It's code here, along with a lot of other things I thought were dumb but this actually worked in my favor. If you know where main sewer line comes out from the house you might have a clean out just under the surface.

Bob,

Thank God I am not your neighbor!! Like I said Y'all stay away from my husband so you don't give him any ideas! He doesn't like our neighbors!! In fact there are 2 or 3 neighbors Rick doesn't like, he would try to share the "hose contents" with all of them!!
