RV PLUMBING BASICS

Getting water into and out of your RV is the primary goal of your on board RV plumbing system.

The Catch All: Gray Water Holding Tank

Your RV’s gray water holding tank is the just what it sounds like, a holding tank and the destination of your gray, or used water from your galley sink, bathroom sink and even shower. This is where your water goes after it heads down the drain from these respective locations.

Gray water will typically be dirty, and contain soap, food particles and possible other contaminants. Several states consider gray water a bio-hazard and do not allow dumping this water on the ground.

Black Water Holding Tank

The black water holding tank is where water that is flushed down the toilet is sent. Black water is required to be dumped directly into a city sewer system at dedicated dump stations. You’ll find these at most campgrounds.

An image of Christmas Vacation may come to mind when you think of dumping your black water tank, but it does not have to be that messy. A high quality RV sewer hose along with properly lined up and connected fittings will make for a stress free, easy dumping process.

RV Pipe Leak

In many cases when you have an RV pipe leak, you’ll be able to locate it by checking all of your RV’s plumbing fittings.

It’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with your RV’s pipe fittings such as the water inlet port and waste outlet valve. However some of your RV’s primary plumbing pipes are housed deep within the body of your RV.

We do not recommend attempting to access these areas by yourself as you may end up damaging other systems in your RV when you attempt to do so. Please contact us for assistance. Our mobile RV repair team can get to your RV quickly and strategically fix any RV plumbing issues that we find so that you can get back on the road quickly and enjoy your RV.

how does rv plumbing work?

RVs that have a comprehensive plumbing system are fed from water tanks that are stored underneath the chassis of your RV. These tanks include sources of fresh water, as well as waste water for your sinks, shower and toilet.

The fresh water tanks are the valuable resource that help you go off the grid on a dry camping adventure and in many cases, the water supply in these tanks is what will dictate just how long that adventure can last.

The RV potable water holding tank has a inlet that can be connected to a hose to fill it up from a fresh water usage source (Like a campground) or from a city water source. We do not recommend using a garden hose for a fresh water tank. You’ll want to use a food-grade potable water hose that doesn’t contaminate your water with a weird taste.

Potable water hoses are fairly affordable and by using one of these hoses you’ll minimize the risk of introducing any noxious chemicals into your drinking water supply and also extend the life of your fresh water holding tank.

RV PLUMBING REPAIR FAQ

Do you need a water pressure regulator?
If you’re filling your holding tanks from a fresh water source at a campground, we highly recommend using a water pressure regulator.

A water pressure regulator will help prevent the water coming into your holding tank from being too forceful, which if not regulated, can cause damage the other parts of your RV plumbing system.

While many campgrounds do regulate their water pressure, by having a water pressure regulator, you’ll know for certain that you are not doing any damage to your RV’s plumbing system.

How is my RV's plumbing system different from my house plumbing?
A home plumbing system operates on more of an autopilot from start to finish. You pull in water from the city, which pressurizes your system and your water drain to a common drain and flows away from your home to a sewer disposal plant or to your home’s septic system.

For your RV it’s a little more involved. You’ll need to ensure that you are loading up your holding tanks so that you have enough water, and you’ll dispose of your waste water separately, meaning your gray water tank will be drained out to a specified disposal site, and your black water tank will be drained out into a separate specified disposal site.
