Perhaps I should not have called it an overflow, so just call it a vent then,and don't overfill your tank.(semantics solved).

To the first point...
How would you know it was dirty water after it is spilled on the dirt right where your pet was allowed to urinate, isn't the solution to pollution dilution?
Of course your response to my comment is a bit of a non sequitur. I was describing what is, not what some folks think should be.

The key is to understand what you have, then act responsibly, especially if you want to follow the rules (or just want to avoid a fine).

The vent you describe would merely allow water to back up into the sink assuming the vent tube extended higher than the sink, water seeks its own level.

If you really want to be shocked, look at the black water vent on many fiberglass trailers!
