Dumping the urine tank takes ~2 minutes and is really simple, dumping the solids takes ~5-10 minutes and is faster/cleaner than pumping out. It's really not a big deal and it's much cleaner than pumping out.

The smell is gone; you get the occasional "wet earth" smell out on deck which honestly doesn't smell bad at all. More like walking through the potting soil section in hardware store.
