Grey Water Filter

Hi all:

I see that Scamps parts store has this grey water filter. Grey Water Filter

I don't have this on my Scamp. Perhaps these are included with newer models. Does this go ahead of the bath shower drain pump?

It does go between the shower trap and the greywater pump. It has a cylindrical screen inside which catches hair and solids which could damage the pump. It has a "jar lid" style cover which is easily removed to get at the screen for cleaning. You should have one if you have a front shower.
On the side bath no pump is used and so screen is used. If you have a front bath , look again, and if you do not have one ,it would be a good idea to get one.

Floyd, Thanks for the reply.

Yes I do have a front shower. I'll add the filter to my to-do list.

While I'm thinking about front shower and grey water...
Is there a valve I should install to keep grey water from washing back to the shower floor? It doesn't happen while stationary (and level) but we seem to get some back wash when towing.

I don't know if you have a sink in the shower room or not, but if you do, it likely has a hard plastic screw-in plug, if you look at your floor drain it should be threaded in the same way. The plug should fit the floor drain and the sink. when screwed in place it will prevent water from backing up.
The trap/drain/plug assembly is the same for the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink, and the shower floor drain. so the plug fits them all.
If you don't have the sink then look carefully at the floor drain, It should be threadedin the center. If you don't have the plug or the drain is not threaded, you can get either or both from Scamp or a local RV shop....
look here...

Sink Drain

That picture is the drain with the plug installed, the plug unscrews from the center and the drain screws into the trap. You may only need the plug.
The trap/drain/plug assembly is the same for the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink, and the shower floor drain. the plug should interchange.

Yep, just put the plug in the drain when traveling... easy peasy.

OK. Now it makes sense. I have a three drains (kitchen sink, bath sink and shower) and none of them have this plug. I'm betting the previous owner took them out. Thanks for helping me clear this up.

Thank you!
