Hey Everyone !!!

Has anyone purchased and installed a Tornado black water tank flush kit ?? We we're looking at one last night and we're contemplating spending the big bucks....It was over $200 Canadian but the thought of it made me smile . Nothing is worse than emptying the lav Thanks Mitch

Tornado Rinse Kit

This the one? Looks like it may be a good thing to have.

I got a special pipe type thing that you stick down your toilet.Attach water hose to it and then it sprays and cleans black or grey water holding tanks.Cost about $20 CDN

Nope not that one !!!! Now I gotta go back to the RV store and see if I have the right name... It was definitely over $200 .

Chester, I have that hose thingy already....I'm just trying to avoid having to open the window to get the hose inside..... I ALWAYS make a mess with the hose and spray...

I have a hose thread on my kitchen faucet and a short hose that goes into the bathroom from there. No windows. I just connect the city water and turn on..

Most times, I don't even do that. I just use the left over fresh water in my tank and kill two (Word that sounds like "birds") with one stone..

so to speak.

We have a 4" drain valve with a cover you take of before pulling the slide (standard everyday equipement) But at the rv supply store we purchased a clear see through attachment that slide locks onto that standard drain and has a threaded hose attachment on the top to attach a garden hose and backwash the tank. The clear plastic see through lets you know when clear water is all that is running out of the tank. I sort of wait a few minutes before glancing in that direction if you know what I mean, but it does work well and for small bucks.

I have the clear thingee - in my case, called the 'Flush King'. Not only is it clear plastic, but there's a hose attachment so that you can backfill your tank and then empty it again (repeating until the water is as clear as you have patience for). It's pretty cool and the fresh water part allows you to clean your stinky tube without worrying about 'splash-back'. I think it was about $45-50 at Camping World.

Being able to fill my black tank from outside is pretty convenient - although you don't get the scrubbing effect that you might from a sprayer.

Even though that's not what Mitch was asking about, I agree that it's an interesting bit of hardware... just hook on a hose and flush clean(er) without going in through the toilet, and presumably more effectively than just filling up from the drain.

This wouldn't work for my B1700, because the black tank is on top of the floor, and thus in the interior with no exposed sides for mounting the fitting... but it would work for an underfloor tank.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Examples of the clear thing: Flush King at Camping World, RV Hydro-Flush at Camping World. Every RV place seems to have units approximately like this, and to me they seem to cost a lot for what they are.

We use the Clear Hydro Flush and it seems to work well, easy to hook up and you can leave it running for 5 minutes and re dump and you get clear water. We use a seperate grey hose for obvious reasons...

Okay ! So we we're back at the RV store in the parts area and I couldn't find the thingy that I was talking about....of course the staff that were there were not working tonight....The closest thing they found was a Macerator priced at $295 Canadian. It looked at lot like what I had seen but it was only ( he,he ) $200. It looks like a Sureflow pump that is fitted on the outside of the tank and needs only to have the switch turned to the on position...then it cleans out the tank it less that a couple of minutes....I'll see if the original staff that we're there the night I saw it are in the next time I'm there...GRR ! Hopefully they will remember me and the conversation we had...I'll post when I know.

Thanks for all the suggestions too. I looked at all of the ones people posted .If I don't find this thingy I'm going to buy one of yours !! They all looked like good ideas for such a loisy job

Happy trails all ! Mitch
