Well..........we have one at home too. Just had it pumped out 3 months ago.

The only 4" pvc pipe is the air vent. To get to the actual tank, you have to dig out the entire concrete top, with two big eye bolts in it, and lift it totally out. There's no access that I know of other than that.

I agree.... Has to be some point in the input line from the house to the tank that you could tee off of.

Well duh.

Yeah, I guess I could pay a plumber to tap into the feed line, rather than the actual tank!

(Why do I miss the obvious so often?)

Never mind, DW just answered for y'all.

Hi.......
So many reasons here why I've never lived in a place that has 'civilized' city charge services. one thing leads to another. lol

After all this input/feedback why not just pay the 5 or ten bux to use a dump station somewhere and you won't have to worry about committing a 'felony' stealing from the govt while trying to rid yoo of yoo poo........ dbl lol.

........aint sayin; im just sayin.
Thanx INTJohn

Just be real careful and plan to space out your tank dumping and rinsing. Septic systems cant handle the amount of fluids that an rv can dump at one time. They have a leach system for the tank to rid its self of liquids while the solids fall. They are only able to handle a few gallons a minute, not the dozens of gallons a minute our rvs will dump.
Our permanent rv park has septic tanks and we constantly have problems with overloading the system. We've learned to space out our black tank dumping and try to leave the shower gray tank open so that the water is dumped as its used to help with all this.

Op. I'd dump it in my cleanout if i had city services, if its septic, just space it out and take your time.

That said, I would ask for forgiveness rather than permission-unless you have a really nasty neighbor.
Well then just turn on an outside faucet while your dumping,everything will be OK then!

Agree with just dump it. I worked for utilities for over 20 years. Not going to be a problem. Now where exactly did you live?? Just kidding!! However, the person dumping directly into the ground could be contaminating every well for hundreds of feet including his own making it dangerous to drink. Depending on what chemicals he is using, it could be a criminal act subjecting himself to fines at the least. If you get interest in your disposal, it won't be the sewer, it will be the well head protection program. Besides that, it is the wrong thing to do. Please rethink what your doing!!

I missed that post about the 55 gallon drums and the 'yard watering'. Since that one guy uses his well for a few months out of the year... I sure hope it's a very deep one!! Talk about recycling!! LOL!!!!!
