RV Grey Water Pumping

Postby cocodub » Wed Jul 18, 2012 1:37 pm

I was wondering if Burning Man allows for outside vendors to come in during scheduled times to pump grey water from the RVs, and also provide potable water? I cannot find anything about this on the website.

Thanks!

There are already people who can pump out rvs' waste water tanks. I'm not sure about providing potable water.

They'll sell you water, but if you're not a scheduled refill it'll cost you...ALOT

Finally starting to get a grip on 2013! I got my ticket on Saturday! YAY!

In past years I have flagged down the RV pump truck to to pump our camp gray water. But I always forget to get their phone # to pre-arrange pumping. If you guys ever come across the phone # of the guys that do the pumping please pass it on. THANKS!!! Sid

I do something really crazy... so crazy it actually works!
I bring my own extra water tanks on my trailer, and empty barrels to dump my greywater into.
In fact, it works reliably 100% of the time!

with a bit of conservation, planning and some bottled drinking water 2 people can do 10 days on the playa without a pumpout or fresh water refill.
