Let’s face it – as much as we love the RV lifestyle, there are still some crappy jobs. You know what I’m talking about – your septic system – more specifically, the process of dumping your holding tanks. While the traditional method of relying on gravity for dumping waste is simple and effective, it is definitely not hassle free. Connecting, disconnecting and storing the typical 3″ slinky hose is cumbersome and sometimes even messy (yuck!). If you’ve ever struggled with a gravity hose setup and are ready to make a change, I suggest installing a macerator system such as the Clean Dump Macerator System.
If you’ve never considered switching, here are some of the benefits and features:
Quick and Easy
Instead of relying on gravity and it’s limitations, a macerator system utilizes a grinder and a pump to break down sewage and discharge waste quickly – even uphill! The macerator system eliminates the need for hose ladders or hose ramps. You can also say goodbye to the bulky 3″ hose, as the macerator system uses a smaller hose that is much easier to handle and store. The system hooks up in seconds and empties tanks in minutes without hassle!
Clean and Sanitary
The Clean Dump Macerator System securely connects to most RV dump receptacles and the discharge hose features a shutoff valve, making disgusting and unsanitary leaks, drips, and spills a nightmare of the past. The sealed hose also prevents unwanted sewer odors from escaping. Due to patented pump technology, the system is self cleaning. By pressurizing the hose, it is able to be cleaned using discharged grey water. When you’re done emptying your tanks, simply close the valve at the discharge end and slide the hose and valve handle back into the storage compartment. It’s that easy.
No need to get down in the dumps with your current RV waste disposal system – install a macerator system like the Clean Dump and rid yourself of the hassle and mess. Made in the USA, the permanent system comes with the Flojet 18550 Macerator pump, 20 ft. discharge hose with drip proof valve, wiring kit, all adapters needed for hookup, dump valve fitting and all the necessary clamps. The hose is UV resistant and comes with a 3 year warranty.
