We just bought the Sewer Solution. Typically we use the stinky slinkys, however, we're about to spend about a week visiting family up north and they have a sewer clean-out about 40-50 ft away from where we can park. There is no way we are going to string out 40-50 ft of stinky slinky's across their yard - I can only imagine the amount of water we would have to use and it just sounds like a mess waiting to happen

Anyway, we looked at both the Flojet and the Sewer Solution and decided that less moving parts in the SS was the way to go for us. We ruled out the FloJet after considering how often we would use it and reading some reviews about the noise it makes and that the motors can give out. For the SS, we also bought 2 additional 25 ft hoses so we can reach the clean-out opening. We'll see how it goes

back when I bought the SS they didn't have the 25' hoses, that I know of, ... it came with a 10' and the any extra hose was a 10'er as well,... I bought one extra and at any cg 20' has always been sufficient, but at home I needed the 40' run,...... I discovered the hose fits a 3/4" pvc coupling, so by getting two 10' sticks of 3/4" pvc pipe and adding couplings on one end, was able to get there,...... just a thought if you ever need more length,.....

Thanks! Good to know, just in case what we have ends up not being enough

Question, It seems to me that if you had a sewer connection point at your home you could bury the pvc pipe and just have an access point close to your RV and an exit point at your sewer tap or is there a possibility the pvc would clog over time?

the clean-out is in the front yard, hidden in a flowerbed right at the house, and the line continues to the septic tank out in the front yard,... when we return from a trip, I pull into the front yard with the tt and as I turn to circle out, the 40' is the nearest I can get the tt to the clean-out, ... the parking pad for the tt is on the other end of the house on the outside of the garage,... I circle out of the front yard, back to the driveway with the tt and then back the tt into the parking pad, ....

so the clean-out is not 40' from where the tt is always parked,.... the clean-out is located where I have to go to it, do the cleaning, then move the tt to the parking pad, ... I guess its sort of like my own "dump station", .....its just that the closest I can get to my dump station is 40' away,..... so permanent piping is not practical ,.....
