    Inspired by @Techno100 and his postings on motorhome improvements and modifications, I have come up with a brilliant new concept.
    We all know that grey water doesn't really do any harm and that much of the issue is down to bad PR.
    Therefore, I am working on a grey water dump valve which uses a photocell to sense when it is night time.
    When it is dark and nobody can see, the valve opens and discharges the grey water quite discretely!
    No more trips to the service point, and more time to drink beer! What's not to like?

    Coming to an accessory dealer near to you soon!

    I'm thinking of taking my valve off altogether as I never close it and it will save weight to be able to carry more wine for SWMBO. I do like your idea but think mine will also save money for more wine for SWMBO.

    In fact I did offer to donate my body to medical science to provide extra cash to buy SWMBO wine when I died.........
    She said why wait that long do it now :eek:

    So long as you can keep the cost to below £500 I'd be interested. On the other hand I might just rely on my magic bucket. ;)

    Why not take the grey tank out and replace it with a Wine or Beer tank?

    Then you could fit another pump and have Wine or Beer on tap!

    Sorted!!!

    :cooler:

    Plus if we could master this on a grass verge we could do away with the loo & toilet paper, more room for beer/wine! :rofl:

    Very easy & cheap to do on a lot of vans that have the electric dump valve & only about 40 quid for the valve if you don't have one.:LOL::LOL::LOL:

    I thought I read somewhere that in France the local Police Municipal have stared spreading the surface of aires with a clear chemical which turns bright red when it detects the fats, soap scum and washing up detritus in grey water dumped from motorhomes being discharged on it so they can clamp the offending vehicle and impose an on the spot 1000 euro fine before releasing it. It may be that Germay will take up the idea too, but instead of imposing fines they will be confiscating motorhomes and using them to ease their migrant housing problem.

    You guys certainly pay the price for having such poorly equipped outfits.
    Grey water tank indeed! A left-over from the Ark?
    When I pull the plug on my sink all the water drains out of it - simples - I've not yet worked out where it goes, probably electronically vapourised back into H and O, but I clearly have a more sophisticated drainage system to those you're discussing. Seems a bit daft to drive around with several gallons of dirty water sloshing around underneath you.
    When I get back I'll take a few pics of the underside of my camper and maybe you might like to do a bit of DIY on yours.

    I've always tried to use cutting edge technology even if it is way ahead of the masses. :)

    I hate it when someone tells you how it's done, up until now I really thought it was a "Magic Bucket"; Help me @JJ you must know somebody who can help.
