lets see.. I have a drain field thats drains into the ground, the amount of waist that leaves my RV is almost nothing, just a few scraps of paper and a few little terds... City folk have no idea what is put on their greens.. or any idea how meat is ready for the market

Seriously, if you clean your black tank with the tank flusher on a regular basis, there is no need whatsoever to close the valve and fill the tank to flush it. That is what the tank flush is for.
If the instructions say to keep the valve open, why would I not do that?

Experience- I've tried it both ways.

I've found that my tank gets more "gunk" out if I close the valve and let the water accumulate vs. just running the tank flush sprayer with the valve open.

EPA has done some good in years past, but the last few years it has come up with some really stupid regulations. One being to try to set how much dust a farmer can generate while plowing and working his fields. Talk about the height of ignorance of bureaucrats, that one takes the cake. Controlling companies from dumping chemicals, etc in waterways, I am 100% in favor, but the EPA is rapidly loosing any common sense about a lot of things.

Enough anyway. I'm finished.

Maybe I am just anal about such things, as I never let my tank get that problematic.
I realise that you can usually get away with it, but with my luck, I don't tempt fate!

Sorry, I didn't realize that you'd met me or my tanks... next time introduce yourself as bakken on FRF when we talk.

What do you mean by "that problematic"? I'm talking about each time that I dump and flush tanks (which is just about every time as I typically have full hookups).
