My vent drops directly to the trap. I know because I have had to have it "plunged" when we first moved in. The previous owner did not have a cap on the stand pipe and grass clippings must have been falling in for years.

Plunging it with a long iron pipe with a circle of rubber and water to make the seal cleared the trap. Never had a problem since (25 years) and have been using it as a dump station for about 5 years now.

Sometimes I think we are listening to government employees discussing these topics...

Whats the difference in dumping in you clean out and flushing your home toilet another 50 times?

LOL!!!! That's just what I was thinking. Makes me glad I'm in the southwest where we don't have so many rules about every little thing. And if we do have goofy rules there is nobody to enforce them and we sure don't call to ask if we can do something logical

A person would have to cut into the line between the house and the holding tank. It can not go between the tank and the field system. The 4" pipe would be buried approx. 18" below the surface. Because the buried pipe is rigid, you would have to dig a hole wide enough to cut the pipe in two places in order to fit a short length of pipe to each end of the Y connection having the drain port, then use a rubber coupler sleeve at each end, and secure them with 4 stainless steel hose clamps. Provided the original excavation has had time to settle, washing the dirt in with a garden hose around the new fitting will settle the dirt under the connection and it will stay in place. The connection should stand the test of time.

And you can also make the argument that are too many rules and laws that make absolutely no sense at all😁
