Well, for one, it is not allowed where we live.

Have a link? I'd be curious to see those rules- it's a first that I've ever heard of. Are black tank flushes allowed at all?

The RV dumps all have water hoses that clearly state they are for that purpose only.

What does that have to do with "campsite water hoses" and ""?

No documents, just opinions.

I'm just confused, to be honest. The flush product can be a good product for those without a black tank flush- if your plumbing is setup so that there's a fairly straight shot from the sewer connection to the tank. Unfortunately, I have one, but I bought it before realizing my plumbing wasn't setup for it. So now I have a really expensive clear elbow. (sheepish grin)

My confusion comes in bakken's post that was very alarmist when this product was recommended. Reading between the lines, he seemed to be indicating that you would contaminate the water source if you used it. These things come with back flow preventers to protect against that *exact* situation. I was then intrigued when he said they were disallowed at the campground/rv park where they currently reside but seems to have gotten 2 things mixed up with that statement (his original mention was campsite water sources and then switched to talking about RV dump stations).

I was just hoping to help provide information on the product that was mentioned and then get clarity from bakken.

(Shrugs.)

Back flow preventers do work as you say as long as it doesn't stick "open" as the check valves commonly do on the fw inlet.
One time of that and you'll use a seperate hose. Imo

To the op.
Do you in fact know for sure that you even have a full hook up site to be worried about a sewer hose and tapered ramp?
