Dex didn't go to work with me then 'Chele and anyway my bark is much worse than his bite . Selfish, ignorant person learnt his lesson having to mop his dirty water out of the pit.

Dave, I'm flabbergasted that motorhomers can also be thoughtless and ill-mannered. Surely not? I've been led to believe by certain people on this site that we're a higher form of life than those horrible "tuggers".

Oh dear, another illusion shattered!

He was a little red faced when I gave him a bucket and mop and asked him to clean his dirt out of the pit I needed to use!

Nice one Dave.

I use a collapsible bucket as well. Takes up hardly any room when packed and easy to use on both sites with drains and fields with hedgerows.

Sadly Frank there are morons in every walk of life and ignorant people abound, more's the pity. I've often wondered about this concept of motorhomers being "better" than caravanners when the majority of motorhomers have had a caravan at some point in their lives. I must say though, that its a minority viewpoint from what I've seen and I've spoken to lots from both camps and a few who still have a foot in each. The one thing I do find amazing is that caravanners seem in general to be not keen on spending money while motorhomers can't get rid of it fast enough! Long may it continue .

She would make a scene for it all to be
Ignored.

We went on a water meter last year so once that lovely weather arrived early on in the year I decided to try to save water. As I don't like to be ripped off, I went and bought a plastic dustbin with lid and a rainwater diverter, I already had a tap left over from the years I made beer, and a small length of tubing. Drilled a hole in dustbin attached tap. Drilled hole in top section of dustbin for the tube and cut thru down pipe from bathroom for diverter, sat it on an old plastic stool and hey presto waste water for the plants. cost just under £12. Hasn't done the plants any harm and they now all smelly of shower gel.
We have never had to water the plants so much even when its raining, which if anybody has noticed it has a lotttttt since March.

Grey water at least thats only a little worry .
I was sitting at the traffic lights in a cue the other day in EAST LONDON .Near the new Olympic Stadium ...Minding me own . I look to the pavement and some Lady well some thing pulled her long skirt up and pee'weed all over the pavement with all of us car drivers watching in horror . He friend was with her and she just stopped stood with her kept on the conversation and waited till she had finished . without a look of shame or nothing she pulled up her draws and moved on.

No they were around 45.50ish .apparently its law intehir country if you need a pee you just pee...Your worried about a little GREY WASTE...
I know what I would rather wake up to...
Well Michele I wouldn't mind waking up to see a woman pulling down her draws in front of me.

michele - 2007-06-18 12:23 PM bazza, i did mean in a sensible place I'm not advocating that I just leave the tap open where ever I feel like it .. I meant the plants bushes in the dry weather ...

M,

Understand and agree with that.

 My comment was to "Rich" who just discards the grey water onto his pitch.

That's a bit inconsiderate of him. Think of his poor wife having to step in it.
He could at least dump under the van next door.

Of course the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of your grey water is to use it to re-fill your fresh water tank thus saving a precious resource and a trip to the water tap.

I always wondered why my tea had little bits of bacon floating around in it.
Of course a better way is to tip it into the tank of the van next door. A real bonus would be if it was Caraprof in the next door van.

Vic - 2007-06-17 7:30 PM

I've just spent the last three nights on a CL in Devon. A lovely farm with great views over Salcombe bay. On arrival, I filled up with 'fresh water' from a tap I had spotted. The next morning, I saw a guy emptying his Thetford Cassette into a cesspit next to the tap I'd used. No real worry here as all the fresh water came from the same source on the farm. Anyway, I asked him where I could dispose of grey waste. He told me that he'd been using this site for 15 years along with many other caravanners and that it was normal to dispose of grey waste in the hedge. In fact, one of the caravans had a hose coming straight from it's waste point going directly into the hedge. Seemingly, the site owner was quite happy with this. So, is grey waste not as dangerous as folks make out? Can it actually assist the local flora? I suppose it can. After all, during drought seasons I'll water my garden with bathwater or washing up water. One assumes then, that if there is a hedge nearby it can be the perfect spot to ditch the grey waste?
my dad always put the washing up water on his beans, swore it kept the greenfly away,never did us kids any harm being able to count to 22 on your hands is an advantage

Hi Graham (GJH)

How did you get an animated gif image to do that? It looks more like java to me. I'm intrigued.

Cheers

Dave

You didn't take screen dumps of a java sequence and stitch them together did you?

It's just an animated .gif file Dave, created using the Animatin Shop tool in Paint Shop Pro.

I've only ever created a couple over several years so can never remember from one time to the next how to do it. More trial and error than good judgement

It looks a bit pixellated on this forum, better display (from the same file) on others.

Thanks Graham - have had a little play - see the new avatar.

How do you think he would look with a yo-yo instead of a stick?

P.S. The Memsahib trains people on Paint Shop Pro if you ever need advice. Not me though, I'm too thick and can't get to grips with it.

In our centre of the Caravan Club it has for years been standard practice on a rally to run grey water through a filter to catch all the nasty bits, and let the water soak into the ground. Good for the grass. What I always think is a very dirty habit is motorhomers leaving a motorhome show with the drain of the grey water tank open leaving a trail of grey water along all the exit roads. It does let the side down a bit.
