Holding Tank Replacement

One of my winter projects is replacing the holding tank, y valve, macerator etc.

I have decided on only one item the trident green stripe hose as its the most pliable low odor hose to work with.

Questions-
What tanks have you got- I am torn between, ronco and sealand...Sealand seems more expensive and not sure why?

Where are the inlets/ outlets located? inlet from head should be at the top I beleive, Is there any negatives to having the outlet at the bottom side wall going to the y valve from there ( after the Y is either the macerator or the pump out? If the outlet is on top..will the dip tune get clogged or leave a sediment in the bottom of the tank? Inspection port and vent outlets at the top I beleive.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Dave
