Macerator pump makes RV dumping easier

By Bob Difley

My best guess — and this is just a stab in the dark — is that there aren’t too many RVers that look forward to their visits to the dump station. There is a way, however, to ease the pain of dumpstationitis. FloJet’s portable RV Waste Pump System enables emptying your waste tanks with minimal hands-on (the ugly part) requirements.

The macerator section of the system grinds waste down to a particle size of 1/8″ maximum so it can easily be pumped through a garden hose (5/8″ minimum). The pump section is self-priming, permitting the unit to be mounted above the tank in a convenient location.It will empty a typical 40-gallon holding tank in less than 5 minutes. You should never run into an issue as the pump operates and empties tanks very quickly. When pumping through a 5/8″ hose you have a maximum range of about 25 ft., but when using a 3/4″ hose you have a pumping range of about 50ft.

The 18555-series waste pump will macerate and pump all waste and tissue normally found in recreational vehicle waste systems. But, it is not a garbage disposal. It will not handle solid objects like sanitary napkins or rags.
