Homemade RV macerator pump
« on: January 08, 2010, 10:04 AM »
Here is another website that has a lot of interesting stuff on it and they have some RV articles as well - one is for a homemade macerator pump for your RV black tank  made from a kitchen sink garbage disposal unit. 
www.steampunkworkshop.com
In the search box, type in:  "diy-rv-macerator-pump" and the link will come up for that article.  They have a few other RV related articles as well, and lots of other interesting mechanical/technical stuff.

Thanks for the article, looks like an easy and very inexpensive project that has a lot of potential.
I've been camped at sites before where the sewer hook ups were located in less than desirable locations, elevation-wise... This would be an excellent cure for that problem.
