Thanks guys. I plan on a PVC pipe hookup. How do you know when tanks are full? Is there a guage or you just visually check?


Do you understand that if the pipe is too steep the water can run away and leave the solids?

When I was hooked up long term to septic I let the gray water flow but kept the black closed and emptied it monthly or whenever was needed. I’ve seen others leave the black open all the time but I’ve been told letting the black tank fill then flush helps get all the solids out and keep doors down.



Correct answer.
