    Was sitting one day at the dump station, slowly filling the black tank up from the dump valve side of the tank, when it dawned on me that what I was really doing was pushing all the stuff back into the tanks...hoping it would come out on the second try, or the third, or the fourth... Eureka, put one of these on the black tank, one on the gray tank. Mounted the hose connections (put quick connects on them) right next to the tank valves. Pull the black handle...while emptying, attach hose to the black Tornado connector, turn on, flush until clear...about 3 minutes. Repeat for the gray tank and we're outta there. Went from 20 minutes and more at the dumpstation to just a bit more than 10. Happy camper, definitely. Two things though...they should provide longer hoses, both my tanks were longer than the lengths of hose in the kit - made extensions out of an old fresh water hose. Second - they need to make their water pressure recommendation in bigger print or somehow more prominent. It is there, just way at the end of the instruction page and well past the point most people would have quit reading, thinking they were finished. I've read some reviews where people complained about them "blowing up" or breaking. I suspect that they were using unregulated water pressure and just turning the valve on full tilt. I use a 40 psi regulator on the hose and slowly open the valve to let them "spin up" gradually and have had no problems. Looking at how they are made when I installed them, I can see how a sudden burst of water, particularly a high pressure burst, could cause them to either seize up or blow apart. Keep the pressure down, open the valve slowly and they work just fine :-)

    I had read some reviews of this product on Amazon and other sites and found it at Walmart's site. It was a little less costly and was delivered to my door rather than having to pick it up at the store, which actually isn't a problem. I wanted to make sure that the black water tank on my travel trailer was as "cleaned out" as much as possible before putting it away for weeks at a time. I didn't want to drag a hose through my camper because it seemed more of a hassle and I also felt that if there was a line behind me at the dump station, that would just create more cold stares that anything else. The install on this would have been easier had the frame of my camper not been as close to my water tank judging from other people's campers, I think it would have been a much easier install. The manufacturer suggests to install on the opposite end from the drain valve, which I did and I barely had enough hose to reach, but it did so you might want to measure your tank before you install it or you'll have to install on the middle of the tank. After the drilling, I connected the hose adapter near the main drain valve and I was done. It took me about an hour to install, but on other trailers I imagine 15 minutes would be all that's required. The first time I used this I had a regular, black colored adapter that connected to the sewer hose which didn't allow me to see what was going on. I scrapped that and bought a clear adapter to make sure that this thing was working. I couldn't really judge if it worked well or not, the first time because of the black adapter, but the second time I used it, I can tell you that it really did a good job of what it's advertised to do. After draining the black water tank, I turned on the hose and let it run for several minutes. I suggest letting it run for a while as it does take some time to make sure everything does move out. It did a great job of getting the areas of the tank that normally would not have been reached any other way and I could tell it worked by watching what flowed into the drain. I would say that my only concern is if you live in a cold weather area of the country, buy a connector and compressor to blow out the hose before you store it as I would worry about the water in the hose and the "head" in the tank freezing and breaking during the winter. Definitely this is a great purchase and I would do it again.

    This is a great product. I am on my second one. The problem is you must control the water pressure otherwise you will blow the head off it. Other than that the product works great and saves a lot of time and mess at the dump station.

    This is by far the easiest, and most thorough way to rinse your holding tank. If installed on the opposite side of the tank from the dump valve, you will get the most thorough cleaning possible with the least amount of effort. The only weakness is that the product comes with a 5 ft supply line and it really needs to be 8 to 9 feet long to successfully reach the opposite side of the tank. I solved this by attaching a 4 ft 1/2" water hose (another expense). I would recommend dumping the tank before it has completely filled. If the waste level remains high enough to completely cover the tornado for a period of time, it can eventually clog the jets to where it will cease to function. If properly installed and used, this product is something you won't want to be without. A little pricey, but no real competition on the market.

    I purchased 3 of these since I have two gray tanks and one black. After reading some negative reviews I figured I better test them a bit before installing them to make sure they were OK. One of them didn't even spin right out of the package. The other two worked initially but then when I went to test them again they stopped turning as well. They turn easily by hand, but when the water is turned on they just sit there spraying water without spinning. If only one of them was bad I could accept that I received a bad one, but with all three being bad, this is clearly a poorly designed product. I will instead buy the Quickie Flush which has no moving parts.

    • A. The black tank has to be accessible. If it is, the installation is very easy. Just drill the holes and seal with silicone.

    • A. The bottom of my 5er is completely covered with a "Plastic" cardboard material. I removed some of the screws/metal strips that were holding it up near the tank and looked inside to locate where I could install. I then cut an access hole (3 sides). It bends down enough to allow access, the uncut side is the forward edge, and I use Gorilla tape to seal it up between repairs. I wasn't able to install the unit across from the outlet, but even still it cleaned the sensors and worked fine for awhile.
