Everyone has different wants & needs. That's why they make chocolate and vanilla. Having owned a couple of black tank rigs, I am going the composting route this time. And that decision was only made after talking to a few folks who have lived with them for a while. Everyone I spoke with said they would never go back to the tank and hose routine again. But...to each his own.

Agreed. SWMBO and I, based on what I've read on here, decided to not go black water tank but composting.

Another happy composter here. No black water. By myself, I can go about 4-5 weeks between empties, especially if I can do most of my poopin at work

How about mounting a large funnel into a pipe leading into the grey water tank with a ball valve below the funnel? If you want to get fancy, get a funnel made of stainless or copper.

Thanks. The idea of using a ball valve never occurred to me - that would be simpler than what I was thinking. I was actually considering integrating a waterless urinal cartridge into it - or else attempt to build my own, because the look sort of ... simple-ish.

But I generally like to overcomplicate things.

Ya...pee turns "gray water"..."black".

At least as far as dumping goes. There are a lot of builds that combine gray & black in a single tank, but...you definitely have to treat it all as black if you do.

If you don't have a black tank, what would you propose? A direct line overboard?

A 2 gallon jug that your piss goes into. When its time to empty, dump it down a toilet. That's how the Nature's Head toilet works.
Im just saying that if you put human waste in a tank, that makes it a black tank.
I wouldn't just run a line overboard unless you want to smell your piss all the time when you're outside. The pee is the smelliest part of what comes out of our bodies in the long run.
