Black Tank Flush System

Was reading the specs for my camper (looking to resolve an issue) when I came upon this black tank flush system.

What is it? And how do I use it?

It's a rinse system for your black waste tank.
After you've dumped your black tank, use the flush system, it will help clean the inside of the tank and beats filling the tank from the inside. Fill the black tank and dump again.

I use the flush system over and over until I see the water running clear. You'd be surprised how well it works. Of course, I also use the Geo system to keep tank clean.

If it has never been used before ,have someone inside when you run water into it so they can see where the leak will occur under the sink ...factory never tightens connections properly.

Don't use your fresh water hose, dont want to risk the cross contamination.

Regarding the black water flush system, it is a series of Jets inside your black water tank. I am fairly certain that it is not intended to fill your tank in order to flush it. I know mine would take a very long time to fill. I also know it works extremely well if I just leave the black water tank valve open and use the flush. That way it can spray the solids off the bottom of the tank.

I had one installed on my Z1 and I am very happy with it. Also bought a clear connector to the tanks which allows me to monitor until the water is clear. Works great.

It takes about 15 minutes to almost fill my black tank through the flush. I turn on the water going to it when I get ready to dump and leave it running until I have flushed the tank 2 or 3 times and the water coming from the tank is clear.

I turn on the water going to the flush and then open the valve. When the flow is down to only what's coming from the flush, I close the valve and let the tank fill again. Then I open the valve and repeat the process until the water coming from the tank is clear.

I installed this one: https://www.amazon.com/Camco-40126-T...ry+tank+rinser and like the way it works. I put it in right after we bought our trailer in the fall of 2014. I see now that the reviews are not as good as when I got ours. That said, I tried it on a garden hose in a 5-gallon bucket before installing it and it worked great, putting out about 3-4 gallons per minute in a very good spray pattern. From the sound of it in the tank, it is still spraying well and spinning like mad.
