btw, i am having a terrible time draining my grey (sink) water..........am reducing the 1 3/4" connection to a hose to fill a 12 gal. plastic container I bought at the rv place, but the water seems to drain so slowly. and yes, i leave the air vent on the plastic container open........what am i doing wrong.

while it comes with a gardenhose adapter, that approach is not really optimal - what i did was find a PVC pipe coupler that matched the thread on the sink outlet on the camper, then friction-fit a PVC "T" to that (it just slides on and off, no threads, no glue) and then i drop a short length of PVC pipe from one side of the "T" towards the ground and here it goes into a walmart type Blue Tote water container. the other, open end of the T faces skyward and the base of the T is what connects friction-fit-wise to the threaded coupler.

your thinking is right, its slowing because of lack of air, but opening the air valve in the catching container is too far away to make a difference.

sort of along these lines... the vent is really the key element here to break the vacuum formed by the draining water..

Yeah, that pic is not mine, it's 3 pieces of PVC, the coupler, the T and a short pipe. Less than $7-8 or so. Easy.
