Sink discharge

Where can I find rules for Sink discharge. 18 years of tent camping and going first time with my new pup on Memorial weekend. Only waste water is from sink. Do I have to contain it or run off with hose. Camping national forest with no hookups. (Boondocking)?

Yes, you have to contain gray water and empty at the dump station...not on the ground. Most campgrounds will eject you for dumping it on the ground.

Yikes. I take it gray is sink and black is the other. Best to by one of those changes on containers on wheels? Another item to carry. Well, I want to conform.

Some just use a bucket carried to washroom. Not that much grey water. On ground can become quite a smelly science project......,

I used one of these 5 gal ones for 20 years on my Coleman Sequoia popup.

Barker Tanks 5GALTT

10 gal would have been nicer (dump fewer times), but storage would be more difficult.

Keep it clean and store it right under the dinette table while you travel. You can dump it straight down the toilet if the bathhouse/outhouse is closer than the dump station. (Same with your porta-potty.)

I've seen the 11 gallon ones with wheels. Smallest I've seen.

Barker makes a blue tote tank specifically made for popups.

I have had a 5 gallon bucket from Lowes, I cut a hole in a lid that fit the bucket, and threaded the sink waste hose into the lid. I dump the bucket into the site sewer when it fills. I've tried a few things, but the hose won't drain across the ground too far. It needs the gravity from the sink to the ground to push it. I have a popup with no hot water or bathroom, just a sink. I use Hot water from a pot on the stove, and hook up a garden hose with a splitter to rinse things off.
