Re: How big a holding tank vs. camping

One of the things you need to consider, when using fresh water to flush, is reverse contamination of your water supply. I had an installer really give me a hard time about it once. I never bothered, but not for that reason.

Bottom line is, if you use your head often, have a well ventilated tank that you empty every few days, flush plenty of clear chase water (salt or fresh) and never flush anything you didn't eat first, your system will be fine, regardless of the water you use.
