Black Tank Flush...

I got hooked on the videos at Fit RV (http://www.thefitrv.com/rv-tips/test...rv-black-tank/)

Anyone know what the spray pattern is in a Jayco black tank flush fitting? Is it just a water inlet? Does it wash down the sides of the tank? Does it work kinda like the Tornado Rotary shown in the video? Should I buy a spray wand to stick in the toilet to get that extra level of clean??

I do know that it seems to take FOREVER to fill a blank tank using the flush fitting (yeah, there is that warning to not do that...but I'm very attentive.....)

Check out his other video that casts doubt on whether the ice trick does anything at all that just a good soaking wouldn't also do.....

Good question. When I use mine everything seems to be flushed out. I have filled the tank with clean water after using the black tank flush and it doesn't get any cleaner. I have a clear 45 degree adapter that I hook to the outlet so I can see what is going on.

Unless they've changed it is just the straight multi-jet sprayer, it does not spin.

Ok. I have a clear hose that runs into my black tank. I thought it was just for filling the black water tank to give it another flush. So there is an actual spray nozzle on the end of it inside the tank? My second question is where do you use this device? At the dump station make other people wait until your done?
Third question what water do you use? The dumps I have been at have a water house on a hose bib with the end cut off so you can't use there hose with that water unless you carry another hose for black tank flashing.

My second question is where do you use this device? At the dump station make other people wait until your done?Yes. But you must be considerate in doing so. Experience will help you adjust.
Third question what water do you use? Sometimes the hose that is there works. Sometimes you must provide your own.

Thanks for the info. I'll be testing this out this weekend when I dump.

tnchuck100, I carry two hoses in my FW, one for fresh, clean water which is white, and another, gray, one for flushing the drain hoses and black tank. Try my best not to mix them up.

jal0710, I carry 4 hoses. 2 - 10 ft, 1 - 25 ft white; 1 - 25 ft green. Ya never know how far the water hook up will be. The green hose is a plain old garden hose. It is for the tank flusher and any other non-drinking purpose that may be needed.

This is correct in my 5er. I also have a "wand" that I use about every 4th time that I dump just to really make it clean. The wand really works better than the factory installed sprayer in my opinion.
One thought about the Sewer Solution; It really is not meant to be a tank rinser. It is rather used as a water-jet macerator. I have one and like it a lot because I find it a cleaner option to the "slinky".

Thanks for mentioning the Sewer Solution. I looked it up and it looks promising. The reviews seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

My buddy has a macerator that cost him several hundred bucks and takes up more space. Do you think the Sewer Solution is as good as the more expensive models?
