I would say the biggest benefit behind this system is the pumping. Your 3" drains with the only pressure coming from a little bit of hydro-static head. You can NOT drain up hill with 3". If your dump location is at or above the height of the TT drain, you won't empty. Also, the 3" is limited in the distance it can drain. I don't have enough TT experience to know what that limitation is, but at some point, the flow through the 3" will not be sufficient to continue to move any solids along the hose.

The SS uses a venturi effect to actively pump the TT tank contents. It masserates (pulverizes) the solids in the process. This allows the SS system to drain to a dump location up to 3' higher (according to product info, I'm betting it could go more) than the TT drain, and also for distances of 100' or more.

If you are dumping in a more common manner, from site hook ups or a community dump, then the 3" should be fine. I bought the SS because my dump location at home is higher than my TT drain.

+1

This is exactly why this product is in my wish list. Also, if I'm at a park without hookups, I have to use the dump station. If there are people waiting, I'm not likely to get a real good flush on my tank. The SS would allow me to do it at home and take my time at a relatively small expense.

Surprised you think it's faster...

I'm not used one, though I have one...

But just the size difference between 3" and 1.5" inch leads me to expect the sewer solution to be slower. This guy's test seem to bear that out.

My statement was very subjective. I'm not concerned about the speed at anyrate. I'm in it for the pumping affect. And not having a built in flush, the back flush of the SS is handy.

The SS hose is smooth on the inside so it rinses cleaner and you can see when it is clear of all "stuff". Unless you are pumping uphill or long distances, there probably isn't that much to brag about. I just like it cuz it seems to be a cleaner procedure.
