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.
Yep. And thanks!!!

The better 1/10 of my brain is sort of saying "That woulda been a good idea if you'd had them do it originally, but now........just haul it somewhere and pay to dump it!".............

The reason is just what I stated for one, I know your smart enough to know the difference in Volume at one time, Flush your toilet it's probably 1.75 or 2 gals max, dump your holding tank full the pure volume of 40 gals at once could damage the system, in older Towns that the systems are old tar or clay layered pipe. Do I agree with my Towns Ordinance NO, but just don't get caught depending on your Town or City Policy. Do we have sewer police? NO, but I do have noise neighbors that will call if they see you, there thinking is why do they have to pay a higher tax rate because of repairs when they don't do it because a person is to lazy to go find a dump station at the sewer plant or the many other places around. Not all people think like campers...

I've been doing it for years, just make sure you use a seal around the cleanout to keep orders from escaping into your neighbors yard and don't get careless..
In my case I have a 40' run between my TT pad and the cleanout so I purchased a macerator and fifty foot of hose. Work great and cleanup is a breeze.

Witchdoctor, I got you now. I didn't catch the volume issue. Makes sense.

Its easier to ask for forgiveness than it is permission.......

Open the clean out port, hook up your hose, and open the valve. If anybody asks what your doing tell them your flushing your toilet...
