Toilet plunger
« on: August 21, 2018, 10:49:22 AM »
So we were at Gogebic State Park in Michigan on our recent trip west, waiting in line behind a huge motor home at the dump station. About halfway through dumping its 200 gallon tank, the pipe into the park’s underground tank clogged up and overflowed. Epic yuck. A park staff noticed (!) and came over with a standard toilet plunger to clear the clog. It was a hoot seeing that tiny plunger fixing the problem.  :o. After the motor home was done and a massive cleanup, we quickly dumped a few gallons while chatting with the park staff. He was not a fan of the huge tanks with 4” drain lines on motor homes, saying they frequently overwhelm the pipes at the park. I thanked him for his quick work and we had a good laugh about low tech solutions.
