So, exactly what is going to come out of my holding tanks that isn't going down the household drains when flushing, washing dishes, clothes, etc?
You know, like phosphates in laundry soap?
Which apparently kills bacteria....
Now, pumping into the storm drain is a different story. Wouldn't want to introduce biodegradable poop to the engine oil, antifreeze, transmission oil and road salt that flushes down there with every rainfall.
I'm not trying to be snotty, I just don't understand the point you're trying to make.....I mean, sure; I get no dumping varsol, acetone or methyl-tetra-floro type stuff down the drains.
But what can plain old macerated pop, TP, urine and water possibly do to threaten a system designed to deal with it in the first place?
