It really does take 30 - 45 minutes of flushing to do a good job. The caked on stuff needs a lot of water to break free.

I'm glad to hear someone say this - with my 5 tanks, I generally have a good hour in dumping and flushing the tanks.

I have the same concerns about using dump stations. I can't imagine holding up the line to dump AND flush properly!

Do people just dump and drive on when using dump stations?

I usually flush when I have sewer hookups, but when I don't I try to pick a departure time "after the rush."

By 10 am or so everyone who is leaving is most likely gone.

If someone does pull up behind me before I am finished I ask if he is in a hurry and if so I pack up an just do a better flush out the next time.
