Grey water question.

Since the sink just has a hose out spot. I have been putting a small bit of hose from that to a 5 gallon bucket, then dumping that about once a day as we have needed. At least at the place we were at last month.
Later this month we are going to a place with full hook ups. What sort of stuff do I need to let the sink water go into their grey water hook up? Is that a thing, or does everything go to black water at a site like that?

Sorry first time to a real rv site.

It all dumps into the same pipe, black water and grey.

I guess I will stick with the bucket set up for this. That way I don't have a black water hose hooked up to my sink :0

I bought a 25 gal gray water tote on Craigslist and then fabbed up a carrier on the rear bumper for transport. When long term camping I usually go 4-5 days before going it to the hitch and hauling it to the dump station.

You'd want to get a Gray Water Seal Sewer Fitting and a length of like garden hose

I used to have a grey water tote, big blue plastic thing with two wheels on the end. Hose from the grey water tank to the tote. Tote would last a full week of camping and you could tote it along on the ball hitch the dump site. Around here you pay extra for sewer site so I never bothered to get a sewer fitting. The couple times I was at site that had a sewer, I'd just dump the tote into it instead of going to the dump station.

I keep a length of hose for grey water draining. I cut off the other end so it cannot be used as a water supply hose.

When we dry camp I have one of the sewer caps with a hose bib on it. I hook up that hose and run it to a bush or grassy spot and open up the grey tank valve.

If in a full hookup site you can run that hose to the sewer connection. They do make plug things for it or you can just make one yourself out of a 4" PVC pipe cap.
