Tiny House FAQ
1How does supply of water and the water system work?
The fresh water tank holds 140 litres of water. This is concealed within the custom built trailer. The filling point is at side of the house similar to how you would refill a car with gas. Valve-1 and pump switch are located below the kitchen sink. When connecting the external water to prime the water tank, open the valve-1, observe the water meter index and overflow pipe until the tank is filled. Turn on the pump switch when the tank is filled with water, close the valve-1. When connecting the external water to supply the vehicle directly, turn off the pump switch, close the valve 1. The water flow should be fully circulated in the pipe before connecting the electric water heater.
2How does the drainage work?
Connect an external sewage pipe before draining water off. The drain valve is located below the front chassis on the right side of the vehicle The two red handles control the drain valve of the black water tank and the grey water tank separately. The front side is a black water tank which collects toilet waste water. The rear side is an ash water tank which collects other waste water Pull the handle to open the valve, push the handle to close the valve. Special chemicals are added to break down any solids and waste to a black liquid form which is drained into a container to be disposed of.
