Got a big job I'm going to use my Mytee M12 and Rotovac on. I am wondering how far the pump out will move the dirty water, will it pump 75 to 100 feet away? Limited unoccupied units and some of the areas are quite a distance to fresh water and an available toilet to dump waste.

If its flat or running downhill from the unit you should be fine. If its going up from a basement I'd be concerned about head pressure pumping a distance.

It depends on which pumpout you have. Both of our vans have an APO that will pump 200' if necessary, but we only use a 25' garden hose.

I suggest you always use an inline vac filter to trap any debris you might suck up so it doesn't go into the recovery tank.
