It's spelled iDot and it's a new App available in iTunes that helps identify the handles of waste water tanks!! You have to have the iPhone 4S though with Siri and you use the camera and say the tank you want and it places an arrow directing you to the handle. Man those guys think of everything!! No IDIOTS there!!

I used to see that in the rural areas down here. The last time I saw that in these parts was 35 years ago.

I don't think we will ever see a change in that rule. I agree that it may create pools and odors. And the rule does eliminate the confusion over which handle is grey. Still, I know is that when we are at a state park with no sewer, I wish we could dump the grey tank because our 3 kids have a tough time with the term "water conservation".

Hi everyone

For years I have been a canoe-camper, paddling into the wilderness for days at a time. Obviously grey water isn't lugged back out. I've done some tent camping in parks, and of course there is the dishwashing, hand washing etc. It's only a basin at a time, but I was never in a park where there were facilities for tenters to dump the basins of grey water. It was usually dumped at the back of site or on the road or nearby treed areas. We are soon going to be taking delivery of our new Rockwood A-frame, which does not have holding tanks. We will use the sink some, and no doubt a basin out on the picnic table. I plan to have a 5 gallon container to catch the sink drain.
I am wondering where are we supposed to dump this 5gallon bucket, or even the wash basins? We have always used nature friendly soaps, and as little of it as possible. But the fact remains, those of us with the A-frames, most pop-ups and all the tenters out there do not have holding tanks - what are we supposed to do?

Thanks

There are campgrounds/campsites that have no sewer connections. In those situations, campers are expected to go to the designated "dump station". If I had basins of foul water, and were not able to pour them into the sewer connection at my site, I'd take them to the dump station. That's not to say that you or anyone else should do that. It's just what "I" would do.

I have only been camping for about 4 years now. Most if not all the places I have camped at least had electric and water hookups. It is amazing how fast the grey water tank fills up. I have a cap on my waste system where a person can attach a garden hose. I have one 25 footer and one 50 foot hose (green, not white). When appropriate I can send the grey water deep into those tall grassy areas, far away from my neighbors. I thought this was an acceptable practice since I have seen many others doing it.
