Drain Master Waste Valve Differences
We get asked a lot “What’s the difference in the Premium and Pro-Series valves?” The actual valve is the same physically so no additional installation steps are needed to interface with your existing plumbing. The difference is in the actual operational flexibility. The Pro Series valve is easier to connect the power 12vdc because it is done at the valve, not at the switch. The switch interfaces with the controller through a small easily run cable (RJ 11) much like a telephone land line wire and has both a green light indicating Closed and a Red light when the valve is Open, so you always know the status of the valve. In addition the controller on the Pro Series has 2 ports so an additional switch can be added OR it can be connected to a computer. The future of RV Waste Management is to automate the dumping process and the Pro Series is ready to go.

Sewer rats living in your RV’s gray water tank? Sewer flies breeding in your black water tank ? It may sound like an urban legend or the stuff of nightmares, but unfortunately, these things can happen if you’re not careful.
In this video with RV Travel’s Chuck Woodbury, you’ll hear about a couple that heard thumping noises in the middle of the night after making this common RV waste management mistake. It turned out that the couple wasn’t alone in their RV — a sewer rat was living with them! You’ll also watch Chuck tell the story of a woman who watched in horror as sewer flies emerged from her toilet after making the same mistake.
Whether you’re new to RV living or an old pro, you know that after connecting your sewer hose, you keep the black water tank closed, while you’re at an RV park. But many RVers are in the habit of leaving their grey water holding tank open anytime they’re hooked up at a campground. While this may prevent dirty water from backing up into your shower and sinks, it can cause some other truly unpleasant issues.
- If your grey water tank is allowed to fully empty, scum will build up in both the tank and the inside of the hose — in addition to being unsanitary, this can cause a really nasty smell!
- If you let your grey water tank fill to ⅔ full before emptying it, a vortex is created which helps to remove the scum and eliminate most buildup.
- For the last (and most sobering) reason you should always practice proper RV waste disposal, WATCH THIS VIDEO with RV Travel’s Chuck Woodbury and subscribe to Drain Master’s Youtube channel for even more RV living tips!
Most RV’ers know that it’s essential to empty and clean your grey and black holding tanks when storing your RV for the winter months. You’re probably also aware that you should put some RV Antifreeze in your holding tanks, since you can’t be sure that there isn’t some water left. A question we are asked a lot is “Should I leave my valves open or closed when storing my RV?” The valves should be left in the open position which allows the seals to be in a relaxed position over the winter as opposed to pressing on the gate, causing a potential for stiction.
