Re: Tank Capacities

Congratulations and Welcome.
I am thinking about getting a replacement cap for the sewer: one that has a regular hose connection, along with a 15' hose for gray water purposes. In those areas that allow gray water utilization it would lighten the load. (Such as Santa Barbara County).

I'm not sure why most other areas won't allow draining gray water. Doesn't seem that all that soapy water could be good for dumps with septic anyway, and yet harms nothing in the woods. Glad somebody allows it. Maybe their afraid someone will pull the wrong valve?

Re: Tank Capacities

Another thing that allowing draining of the grey water would do, is to lessen the amount of waste water to be treated, saving on treatment and/or septic costs.
