Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings
Good day all:
I am installing a new holding tank and replacing the sanitation hoses. I am using Triton sanitation hose (supposedly one of the most flexible), and I find it next to impossible to get it to go over the barbed fittings. Both the 3/4" intake and 1-1/2" outflow are equally as difficult. Any suggestions on making this task easier? Is there a lubricant available which aids slipping on the hoses?
Thanks in advance!
If they are PVC they are not really a 1.5" or .75".... You should use the white nylon fittings.. That said the cheap, odor permeating white PVC "sanitation" hose barely fits over the white nylon fittings so a soak in a coffee mug of hot water will do...
