My "tote" is a 30 gallon barrel ($10) strapped in my truck bed. I fill it with a Flojet macerator pump and it has a 1-1/2" gate valve and hose to empty it. I started with a Harbor Freight 12V marine pump but the macerator is faster and I can empty the black tank with it.

Get one of these. With my Dewalt 18v drill it will pump 5 1/2 gpm and will work pumping gray water. I use one to transfer fresh water from a tank in my truck bed into my RV holding tank. Works really well and cheap.Drill pump


Can you tell me why you want to put water INTO your holding tank?

Guess I should have said fresh water tank. The talk was about holding tanks and had that stuck in the old noggin.

Just wanted to post a follow up message.

I ended up buying a ryobi cordless pump, since I already had batteries.

The only challenge I ran into is that both the pump and the valve cap had a male connection, which I could not connect the supplied water hose to. I only had a walmart close and I found a quick disconnect set that worked, but it had a strainer in it.

The pump worked great, but when dumping the galley, the strainer would get clogged up with food particles. But that was easy to clean out.

I appreciate all the feedback.

For future reference, a washing machine hose has two female ends. I always keep one in my gear.

You can also get a 6' hose reel leader hose with two female ends.
