Grey Tank

Quick Grey Tank questions. Is it okay to use regular household grooming products. I'm thinking about shaving cream, toothpaste,bar soap and such. Also, if you wash the dishes I'm the sink with regular dish soap will your tank get all sudsy? Forgot to ask the tech at my PDI.

The only thing that I don't pour down the drain is grease (kitchen sink). Other than that I use the kitchen/bathroom sink as I would in the S&B.

Use the Grey system as you would sinks home (and that implies not pouring grease down them). The tank water is settled and you would have to highly agitate the contents just to see a few bubbles....much less suds.

Best practice is to use less of everything - and top the tanks off with clean water before dumping.

What we often do is wash our dishes in soapy water in a dishpan then dump that soapy water down the toilet. Although there's no harm in using the sink/shower as you would at home.

1x! Also, we always scrape the plates into the garbage before they go in the sink - no solids in the grey tank. Other than those 2 items, it's business as usual.

Never thought of that...good way to flush the black water tank with some added soapy water.
