I have a Valtera SewerSolutions to use when I return home with a tank that has not been emptied (not very often). I dump through an outside sewer cleanout that is about 18" above and 20' away from my tank valves, I connect with 1" pvc pipe. It works great. It does take quite a while to clean the tanks but I'm a little picky about flushing my tanks. I would not recommend the sewersolution for everyday use but for me it works.

I bought the same pump from eBay about three years ago. It still works fine I just spray some silicone in it when I'm done pumping. I used it at my last house on occasion to pump my tanks but the rise was only about two feet. At my new house I used it as we were working on the house for 6 weeks and I pumped it out once a week and it was about 10 feet uphill. It took about 5 minutes for the black tank and 5 minutes for the gray tank. I did use a dedicated hose. It's not a permanent setup up so I would connect and disconnect it each time. When the gray tank was empty, I would kink the hose disconnect it from the macerator and then drag it higher than the other end and then let gravity drain the hose as I coiled it up.

This was another question I had for you uphill pumpers. Not sure if the pump has a check valve built in, or maybe the rubber impeller acts as its own backcheck? I was thinking a cam lock with a ball valve so I could disconnect without too much dripping. Hopefully just water at that point but still want to minimize fertilizing the flowers.

I use the Sewer Solution at my private long term site because we had to run a 2" line about 200 ft down a long slope to the septic tank. There is about a 3" lift to the pipe connection. It works fine as I stay there for months at a time. When I go on the road I will use the full size hose to get that good flush out. I have a built in black tank flush and I use it extensively. I use Calgon/Dawn eco mix in the tank and have no problems with the sensors acting up.

Thanks for the info. I need to start with the Dawn & Calgon I keep reading about.
