May be a stupid question, but is it safe to dump hot pasta water down the sink?

If you can do it with out scalding yourself
Do make sure it will not damage the sink. Some sinks can not tolerate very hot items or liquids

HI,

I usually add some cold water, and then it is OK to use. The plastic can melt and deform at 225F so boiling hot water sitting in the trap is not a great idea long term, so adding a small amount of water will cool it below 150F quickly!

We try hard to not put any food down the drain. In the Florida heat, the gray tank can get really foul smelling. We wipe out all of our plates, pans, etc with newspapers or paper towels before washing them. Pasta water would get thrown into the bushes after rinsing any other dirty pans or dishes with it first. Hot water wouldn't hurt the drains or tanks.

I think it's actually a good thing to do. It washes out some of the grease and junk that collects in there.

I won't for two reasons - the hot water can affect the seals in the drain and I'm not taking chances with my moving condo. Second - something too gooey, in my opinion, to put down into the holding tank. I let it cool, then either put part down the black tank, if we're not boondocking, or put the entire thing into the fire pit to put it out. On one occasion I cooked rice pasta and the water was thick like gelatin when it cooled, so I put it in double zip loc bags and put it in the trash.
