Next time you flush your tank turn off water to it and let it drain. Leave valve open place bucket under the outlet. Set timer for one minute turn on water to tank and then at one minute turn it off. How much water did you add to the bucket??? I set mine for 10 minutes and I guarantee I am not adding more than 30-40 gallons to a 50 gallon tank.

Set your phone timer for the appropriate time based on gallons.


I've tried timing it but the time varies depending on the available water pressure. It can take as long as 10 minutes at our storage area, but at some parks it will take just over 1 minute to fill.


I think you may be exaggerating just a bit. Filling 50 gallons thru some spray nozzles in just one minute???

That's what I was wondering too. I have excellent pressure and volume at home, the hose bib on my house puts out 4 gpm, and that's with no hose attached.

I'm picturing you in camp hooked up to a 4" fire hydrant. [emoticon]

Its probably more than a minute certainly but the difference in times has me not comfortable just 'timing it' - we always have to watch the indicators as its quite variable depending on the location.
