Check out the Macerators at Camping World. Either the Sani-Con or Flo Jet.

RV Supplies, RV Accessories & RV Parts for Motorhomes, Travel Trailers - Camping World and search for Macerator. Hope this helps

I'm currently looking at two (2) different units with design factors more than I really need for this application. Each of them are package units, basically just remove from the shipping package and install, complete with pump, level switch, and check valve. I'm never satisfied that I have completely emptied either of my tanks on my TT and am sure that they are not as clean as I would like them after dumping. With this system I can flush the tanks out, the water will drain into the lift station via the regular dump hose and the lift station will pump it over to the septic tank. I will also have a nearby faucet which will be used to run lots of water into the lift station after cleaning out the TT to flush the line to the septic tank. I'm wondering if anyone else out there has done this type lift station at home and have any suggestions.
I am not sure why you are going to all thet trouble, why not put a septic tank near your RV? run the field lines into your yard make use of the was to help you yard grow

I would think a new septic tank and field would be a LOT more than a lift station, but maybe not. A septic system costs $4-6K. Don't know what the lift station is going to cost him.

Just looking think you used the connectors for the slinky hose is that right? Also do you have to run water in while operating or just after to clean out?

Sorry for the missed link... was trying to link to just a picture.

We had the sewer solution before the FloJet... uses a ton of water and requires a bunch more hoses. Discharge and a water hose to power the unit.

We don't even carry a slinky at all anymore... Clear elbow, and then a greywater only cap with the garden hose for grey water only... OR for dumping black, take off greywater cap and replace with FloJet and connect to same dump hose... I fashioned a sewer connector that has a female hose end and with two donuts that fits almost every port we have encountered.

I have (2) 25' black/grey hoses... keep them rolled and connected back to themselves in storage... no leaking - no fuss...

With 50' of hose, I have even dumped my black tank into a vault toilet in a state park that I was able to pull up among side of... pumps 6' of head no problem...

For about $200 brand new you cant go wrong...

Yes hooks up just like any RV hose! Treat it just like any (Garbage Disposal) fluid running (Used or New) while disposal is turned on! Youroo!!

Using the 1inch diameter hose after the three quarter inch hose that comes with the sewer solution i seldom need to use water to macerate. Ussually only water used is for black tank cleanout. Takes me about one hour to dump everything and put it all away. I wouldnt reccomend sewer solution at a dump station where someone might be eaing behind you tho.

With the soils we have around here, field lines are not allowed nor do they work. Only permitted septic tanks are arobic, which by definition means they are not septic (lacking oxygen) but arobic (air pump like a fish tank). Arobic systems have 3 holding tanks ( 3 phases ) with sprinklers spraying chlorinated treated water out of the last tank/phase. These costs on average $10,000 and each requires to be filed with the county and be on an annual maintanace contract from a certified service company who must make quarterly visits to inspect and collect a sample for testing from your clorinated tank. If your maintanace contract expires ( you don't renew or pay the service company), the service company is legally required to notify the county. Then you get a nice certified letter from the county telling you that you have 15 days to provide documentation of a maintanace contract or be charged with "Hazardous Waste Dumping", a $2,000 fine.... All great reasons for limiting the number of waste treatment systems on your property... Plus I like to keep my treated sh!1 water in one area on my property... Not spread out all over the place!

Wow. That's sime complicated sh!1 you got going on right there!

Seriously, I'd go simple before I'd go complex--the macerator (Flojet) may do everything you need it to do, and you're only into the project $200. If it works long term, you're done. If it doesn't work long term, you're only out $200.
