Now that others have mentioned it.....the 15 ml sewer hose it about the heaviest you should use. Even that is stubborn to push back in when it's cold or you've had the hose stretched to the limit for some time.

Oh BTW. my original hose went 8 months and started getting holes in it. Clearly I believe it was due to sun exposure. The color of the sewer hose was faded where exposed to it. And it's almost 4 years on the hose was replaced and all is well. rockin'

I have never had sun rot with a sewer hose! Maybe it's the smell that causes the rotting!

Any body know what the mil is on the original hose? I use the plastic rain gutter to cover mine because most of the time I end up pulling it out to it's max and that length PVC pipe will not fit into my EZ tube. The sun out here in the southwest will surly ruin your hose.

As I mentioned before, the 4" co-ex fits nicely in the EZ Pivot and the additional piece fits nicely in the basement to use with an extension when the extra sewer is needed. PCV is not needed. rockin'
