Use lots of water. Especially AFTER you've dumped.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

I have about a 3 foot drop over a 50 foot run. It works fine. I've been doing it for 16 years now and have never run into a problem, aside from cheap hoses. I've never had any surprises left in the hoses.

Not an issue! Be sure to fill your tanks then do a final flush.

Thousands of miles of sewer are installed every year with approximately one percent slope (About 1/8" per foot). Thirty feet means .30 foot or about 4 inches. One does not want the water to outrun the solids and leave them behind. Flushing with large volumes of water improves this situation.

We don't have but a 20 ft run here at our temp address. Critters like to chew on the hose. We have a long piece of pipe thin insulated type pipe,easy to cut and split it an ran the sewer hose through it. I have seen a cap with a hose fitting on the end that fits the house end of the sewer hose. it might have been at CW. if you have a problem cleaning the inside of the hose. I plan on re filling the gray water tan and flushing the hose twice.

1/8” per foot is for 4” lines.
