To be fair most sites have to pay for all this water that you all dropping
in to septic tank and its a lot of water in a week if everyone dropped all
down the sluice.

Far, far better to have a bucket with a hole in it dear Liza or, purchase 4
or 5 yards of black flexible hose and let it drop in the the hedgestrait our
of the conection under the van.

From: "Chris J Dixon"

Whilst a Wastemaster certainly eases the transport of waste water
to the emptying point, I have to admit that, once there, it can
be quite tricky to handle.

Many waste disposal points have a brick surround, with one side
lowered, but they are not wide enough to get the wheels between.
If you lift the considerable weight in sideways, there is then
the task of controlling flow, by undoing the discharge cap and
the top one as a breather, without getting drenched, or
overwhelming the hopper.

I've also tried putting the handle end in first, but that didn't
seem significantly easier or less messy.

Am I missing an obvious trick?

It is really down to the individual circumstances. A large site
with plenty of long grass can easily absorb gray water emptied
onto it without any problem. If there is less space, or poor
drainage then conditions might get unpleasant and food particles
can look unsightly. It is also polite to follow the site owner's
instructions.
