Don't use fresh water from the container that was previously used to drain the grey water.

That's sure an interesting segue.
Maybe one could filter their water though some of that famous Lompoc diatomaceous earth.

I worked one year after high school at a Lompoc diatomaceous earth mine, Johns-Manville. I still hate touching chalk...

Perhaps the drained grey water can be used to flush the toilet.

Holy cow.... that is a brilliant idea!

When boondocking that would solve a few problems.... preserve fresh water, and get rid of grey water.

I wish there was a clever and sanitary way to select if the toilet was flushing from grey water... or fresh water... as we boondock more than camp with full hookups.

We order our 21' April 1st.... any way to have ETI somehow build something (elegant) in during the build?

a LLLOOOOOONNNGGG shot, i know. An odd request.

I always have to empty the black tank well before the grey needs to be emptied, so wouldn't help me.

If we 3 are in a situation where we need to shower in the Casita.... even when showering every other day, and really conserving water..... then the grey fills up well before the black.

However the bigger tanks on the 21' will help!!!

But seriously... has anyone ever had ETI build in some sort of way to flush the toilet with grey? (selectable clean or grey)

Seems to me that to do that you would need separate pumps, unless that doesn't bother you.

We have outhouses available when we boondock so filling the black tank hasn't become an issue.
