Yeah I guess that blows that idea out of the water... When I had my PUP I had not tank, only the cassette toilet. I had the water grain into a 5 gallon jug then either dumped into the clean out or into the bathhouse when dumping the cassette toilet. Of course this will be controversial.. But when I had nothing I had a filter set up on the neck of the jug and let the heavy stuff go to the bottom of the jug and the cleanish water would overflow through the filter to keep the bad stuff in the jug. Worked well for me.

The wheels on my Barker 4-wheeler broke the first time I used it. I went to Tractor Supply Co. and bought 2 solid steel wheels with airless rubber tires, 4" diameter. Bought a 1/2" steel rod and 2 of the rigs with set screws that you can use to hold the wheels in place- can't remember what they're called now. No problems in the 4 years since.

No cassette toilet, I have a 12 gal. black water tank also (too small to us for extra grey water. The grey water drain is plumbed into the discharge line along with the black water. I am interested in pumping the grey water into another container in the pickup bed. I looked in the flojet but don't want to spend more that $100 on a pump. I think that I diaphramn pump would work better than one with an impeller type in order to pass small particles from the grey water tank. Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Thanks Doc73 and dustman. Good to know.

Doc, since you have both brands, any preference?

Barker was good quality but very basic, no frills. It worked well. The only reason I am getting rid of it is because I got a larger version from Thetford. This is what CW had in stock and I was in a bind. Otherwise I would have done the Barker. The Thetford keeps everything inside (the short dump hose and connectors) where as the Barker needed to keep it separate, BUT it comes at a cost.. At least at the time when I bought the Barker the Thetfords were 50 to 100 more for the similar sizes.

How well does the Flowjet empty out the blackwater tank? I have always read that you should have a large, fast flow to ensure the solids are removed. Pumping through a 3/4 inch hose sounds like the solids would just settle onto the bottom of the blackwater tank.
