Glad I found Sailnet
I'm replacing the hoses on our heads. Does anyone know the best type of hose to get? Is there a hose that is designed to smell the least? Other advantages?
Laughed at that. You have to be right there. I could at least remove the old hose while it's cold out. I have some seacocks to repace too (gravity-fed holding tank discharge). We are outside the no-dump zone often enough that I'd like them working properly. But that's another thread that I can look up.Trident 101 at $8.00/foot is rated high along with, I think, sealands premium at about $9.00/foot.
I'm about half way through it...have fun!
The trident is just a bit thicker than most 1.5" hose so if you have any tight holes to feed through you might need to carve them out. it's also quite stiff. But I do find it relatively easy to fit onto hose barbs.
Get this done while it's still cold, the old hoses don't stink as much when cold.
Good luck!! have fun!!!
Bump...Time will tell; drag this thread up in 5 years and ask me how I feel then.
Perhaps the Trident slick inner surface will prove problematic in sealing the hose barb? I'll know that in a few months when I launch and take that first test crap! ...
BTW, at least according to what I recall, Peggie Hall says that there have been no cases of odor permeation with Trident 101/102 either.Bump
Any updates from anyone? I found a deal on PVC (1.5" inner diameter) hose but I may pass on it for the "good" pipe that's mentioned here. At about $1/foot it sure is tempting.
Might seem like a silly questions, but if rigid PVC is "code" for plumbing in a house, why not reccomend it on a boat?
