Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

I find an electic hair dryer to be much more convenient than working with hot water.

Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

I redid my waste system last year with that awful white sanitation hose. I found that hose lube and cursing worked best. I saved a 2' piece of the hose so if I ever run across the inventor I can beat him to death with it.

Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

Consider Raritan Saniflex. So easy it's like cheating.
Raritan Engineering | Sanitation Hose

I did a review for PS and thus have 6 different hoses on my boat.

Will it last as long? Hard to say, but I've not heard of any permeation failures... have you?

I do know this; I will never buy any white hose again; though I can work it with hot water, why bother when there are better products? and use straight (not barbed) fittings of the correct size.

I use an insulated SS coffee mug. Water stays hot for multiple fittings. Course I try damn hard to talk customers into real sanitation hose not the PVC junk that odor permeates as fast as a auctioneer talks....

The problem with heat guns and hair driers on this hose is that it is very difficult to heat it evenly. The hose then stretches more in one area than another and can later crack..

I used a heat gun which worked great. Just be carefull to not overheat the hose.

Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

buy a tailpipe expander {harbor freight, napa, advanced}just dont go crazy with it just enough to open the diameter slightly, let it set in the pipe for a few minutes, release it put the hose on ,
don't waste time because the hose will return to its original diameter pretty quickly...
