Positive seals required (sewer)

Going to Tybee Island. Rules state "Positive seals are required at point of connection " Can purchase at their store.
We have the DOMINATOR sewer kit. Is that considered a positive seal or do I need to purchase another piece? Thanks in advance! !!

The places I've seen that have that requirement want a threaded sewer elbow screwed onto their threaded dump line. The dominator should be fine.

Actually they just want a positive seal and does not have to be a screw in adapter. What is sold by them is the sewer donut which creates a positive seal. You just cannot stick the sewer hose down the sewer pipe. I carry a donut because not all sites have threaded sewer pipes. No one should ever have an unsealed sewer hook up whether stated as a requirement or not.

Like the others have said they just want the insert, probably so your neighbor or the CG isn't smelling the whole septic system.

It's probably more like they can be fined if operating/allowing with open sewer lines.

I camped there three years ago and used just a elbow connection that ran through a flange that sealed on the dump tube in the ground. Just like any other campground that I have been at KOA and so forth.




Sorry to be a humbug on that campground but in my humble opinion it was one of the worst one that I have stayed at in a long time. Maybe because we just left the park in Charleston SC called; James Island County park which was a great park.

I like the James Island park. It's right next to the pond where I race my Soling 1 meter RC sailboat. Charleston has a great RC sailboat club.

James Island County Park is 6 miles from my son-in-law and daughter and the grand kids. When the wife and I come down to visit we always stop by that park. The Christmas light display is fantastic.

X2, the rubber donut provides a positive seal on sewers without threads and is usually a state requirement.
