I Took The Plunge

This past Saturday I drove off the Lot with a brand-spanking-new XLR 29HFS.

I think I got a good deal. And my buddy and I pulled it to Michigan to store it until the Spring.

I know nothing about it other than it pulled nicely with his F-350 dually. I don't think it will be a problem with my F-150. We shall see.

Since it's 1,400 miles away, I won't even have the chance to play with it until spring time.

Seems like a good quality unit. It really does.

Next, I got to think about pumping Black,and Gray, Water 450'

The grade (load?) will only be about 6 or 7 feet of vertical lift. If anybody knows of a place I can study the situation, please let me know

the 29 is a good unit you'll enjoy it ! look into sewage & effluent pumps . you could install a small pump station to dump into the pump will do the rest .

They make a pump that goes on the bayonet where you would hook up your normal waste hose that will grind it up and pump it through a garden hose.

I have one. It requires a 3/4" garden hose and is only rated for 50 feet. However, with minimal grade, I'm SURE it would be fine with a much longer distance. Don't call me if I'm wrong though! LOL.

Be careful with your research on pumping black water that far. You will need an effluent pump because of the solids but I would be more worried about the elevation and distance you have you pump.

You will love the 29HFS...:-)

Steve, mine works great on black and grey have I have a buddy who uses the same on a 150' slightly uphill run. 450' may well be pushing it unless it's dead level or downhill...

Karl,
Based on my home septic system. I know if you have "run" too long, basic pumps can't handle it. I'm sure this product works great for some short runs. But it was stayed that he needed a 7-8ft elevation and 450ft distance.

(sorry can't find a good elevation/distance chart to show what I'm talking about...)

I would just suggest testing this pump out with some "clear" liquid first...

It was good to hear that this RV pump is even available. Thanks for sharing the link...
