Re: Suggestions for emptying blackwater tank with no pumpout available

I second the idea Emptynest posted. I have a pocket cruiser that lives on the trailer. Many of the lakes I sail don't have a pump out so I took my old wet/dry shop vac, bought a multi-diameter rubber hose adapter from Home Depot and cut it to fit the pump out on my deck. Now when I get back from multi-day sail, I pop in the adapter and turn on the vac. It works amazingly well and I can just dump the black water in the toilet in the shop. A watered down bleach rinse on the whole system puts the holding tanks and vacuum back in good order.
