Re: Head hoses

Replaced all my waste hose with ABS pipe 15years ago ... still stink free.

Cheaper and easier to work .... cut and glue with standard fittings from any hardware store.

Only hose in may waste system is a few inches to connect the pipe to the head and a few more at the waste tank.

Oh Boy! First thing we did was to replace our sanitation hoses with our Allmand. Sri..can't remember the sizes..other then remembering the cursing, sweat and blood..

And the second thing was replacing the over head...

Good luck,

I gotta ask about the last one... Please tell me that you have never come across this.
(There are some things should just not be seen, and once seen, cannot be unseen)

FWIW - I re-plumbed all the hoses with my VacuFlush system last year to eliminate all low spots where effluent could sit in the hose or pipe. There was a dip between the holding tank and the pumpout fitting where the yard that did the install used 5 extra feet of the Dometic PVC hose, rather than cut 2 2ľ" holes through 2 bulkheads. Despite rinsing after every pumpout, effluent and water would remain in this dip, and it was the source of "that smell."

I used a combination of Sched 80 PVC, and Trident 102. I believe that the Trident 102 is cheaper than the Dometic flexible PVC.

Re: Head hoses

I'm surprised rigid PVC isn't used (like in a house). Is there a reason? Too much stress on the joints from when the boat moves?

Re: Head hoses

PVC works fine if you have a straight run. You can use hose on the curves but you have to get creative to transition from PVC to hose.

Re: Head hoses

"...if you have a straight run" Ahhhh...there's the issue on my boat. I might have close to a straight run from the thru-hull to the head, but I'm not sure I have many other straight runs.

Re: Head hoses

Rigid piping is generally considered poor practice, as it may crack under stress, heat, pounding, etc. There are some advocates that disagree with this.
