Dumping Black Tank at Home

I am connected to the public sewer utility. I have a couple of clean-outs between my home and the city street. Just curious, but is it possible to dump black and gray tanks into the clean outs? Or, do I need to run separate plumbing from within my home?

no reason you can't dump your sewage in the sewage pipe you pay to dump sewage down. Let er rip.

Haha - good enough for me!

Does anyone else do this? Don't want to be like Uncle Eddie out on the front lawn yelling, "s*****'s full!"

I could, and I would, but where I need to park to do it, the yard has a slight slope the wrong way. Would not drain fully. We do have a public dumping station in my town at the sewage plant.

I have a clean out in my side yard. I park the trailer in front of the garage takes me 30 foot to reach it but its nice knowing I can flush it out good before I put it up. Like others said let her rip.

Beats using a 5 gallon bucket and lifting the manhole at midnight!

If yours goes as much as my wife does, you may want to call the sewer plant and warn them it's coming !!!

I'd have to park the trailer in front of my home and run the sewer hose across the sidewalk to the front clean-out. So, it might still be a midnight evolution!

I would if I had a clean out close enough. Count your blessings and dump away.
