ANOTHER good read, at least it's not a WASTE of time.
:R
Commode camaraderie, a place to gather of similar interest butt not all at the same time and the pit of discussions usually aren't very deep.
(drum) DUH-duh DUMP
.
I had thought of a raiseable tank that after it's filled using a hand or elec pump would then be a normal gravity system.
And if that tank gets rancid or broke, it's very easily replaceable.
Pipes under the trailer is a really great idea and holds the weight at or possibly below the axles. Since my trailer will be towed behind a bike the smaller tanks minimizes the slosh factor.
.
Is it possible, FULL RV in a 48 Sq.Ft. footprint & stay under 500Lbs wet?

This area of discussion is just a little Gray. We need a little more fluid conversation.

you are correct...there is no waste here. Great subject matter for those wanting to add water to their builds.

I asked the question here:

viewtopic.php?f=54&t=65497 .

Maybe I should have asked it on this thread. I did a search on the forum for "trapless" and didn't see anything.

Any comments on the question? Thanks.

IF it were me I'd be looking at initial cost, replacement ease, simple near unbreakable design, EZ cleaning, parts found anywhere. NO rubber parts to replace, all metal to metal seal.

Drain directly to holding tank using no trap.
IF i remember it's about 3 inches from lowest connection to finish surface. Problem there is tightening the 1-1/2" nut.
No problem if the drain pipe goes into the side of the tank.
ALWAYS trade-offs.

MAYBE this kitchen drain?

That is an idea! I'd have to open each time I took a shower, but that would stop anything from bubbling up when not in use.

I added some new info in the original post.

Problem with a P-TRAP is while traveling the water in the trap sloshes around and usually down thereby loosing that seal.

A check valve question?

Postby Camp Wags » Mon Jun 27, 2016 2:39 pm

When and where will a check valve be needed? :thinking: My build will have both a tank with 12v pump and hook up for pressurized camp ground water. Will I needed a check valve on both systems or just on the 12v pump side to keep the pressurized water from back-flowing into the pump and tank? :roll: :?

Thanks Guys,
:thumbsup:

There is a check valve built into most pumps and inlet devices. The links below are examples that state that they have built in check valves. Just make sure the pressurized water is hooked into the system on the output side of the pump.

check valve

Postby Camp Wags » Sun Jul 03, 2016 7:50 am

Iconfabul8,

Thanks for your reply. I have both of the items you linked to, so I guess I will not need any check valves.

Thanks,

:beer:
