What to do with water from sink ?

I have a pop up and can hook up to water . After using the sink the water runs out the outlet on the side of the camper . What do other people do with that water ? Do you catch it in a bucket ? I have no idea ? Thank you

Most run a short hose to a 5 or 6 gallon container like an aquatainer. When it is full, they bring it to the dump station and empty it. I am not good at posting other thread links but I am sure someone will be able to dig up a picture for you.

In most states dumping any waste water, even grey, is illegal. I personally saw a popup owner ticketed and escorted out of a state park for doing so. Like Vin said, catch the water in a bucket and take it to the dump station. Or look into a Barker type tote. Link:

We had a Coleman Sequoia popup for 20 years. We used the 5 gal Barker as in the link in the post above (handle, no wheels). Pretty easy to carry, usually emptied every other day (2 kids, one DW). Kept it clean on the outside so it travelled under the dinette table. You can empty at the dump station or right into the toilet at the bath house.

Easier to dump than the porta-potty.
