Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

Seaduction is right. You need fittings made for the marine sanitation hose and if you're trying to use standard hardware store barb fittings, they won't fit. Don't know why that is, but all the hot water and dish soap in the world will only get your hands slippery and the hose cleaner. I did the same job and ended up sanding the barbs down with coarse sandpaper. I had some limited success that way, but with the correct fittings, the hose slips on pretty easily.
Not that expensive and worth the money.

xort Trident 101 & 102 are the best. They are also MUCH easier to fit than any of he white plastic crap hose

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...

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

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.
