Personal pump out stations

First, I apologize I have not searched this at all. I need to make some quick decisions on the holding tank potential of my boat. New tank or tanks. Does anyone have there own pump out at the house? I don't plan on dumping in the sound and legally I would have to go several miles out past the barrier islands to pump out. I have a septic tank on my lot and I could put a pump station by the bulk head. I just need to get the "stuff" about 30' to the pump station. I will start search but I would love some suggestions. Thanks

RVers used a regular macerator pump that can be plumbed in a boat as well and they pump it through a garden hose hundreds of feet to their house sewage lines (usually into a cleanout somewhere near the house)

No need for an expensive vacuum system when a $100 worth of pump and hose will do.

The key to house pumpout is to NOT < NOT < NOT use chemicals in the boats holding tank.

The stuff that poisons the stench will also kill the septic tank workers and flood the field with solids.

A bit of sugar , ir a spoon of septic tank warriors is fine , but NO chemicals.

Obendorf makes a great 120V waste pump to set up the system , usually dumping into the home clean out .

How would that compare with an onboard treatment system cost and hassle wise?

The Eagle has a 4 person Microphor sanitation system which is sort of like a septic tank as you just use it. No chemicals or electricity required by the time the stuff works it way down and passes though a final chlorine chamber. So I lied as it does require a chlorine tablet.

However, if there was no pump out boat and I had to pump it out. I would build a portable 20+ gallon pump out that could be loaded on a dink and/or cart. However, I would much rather oay someone. Yuck!

Onboard treatment is not a legal choice in many areas.
