Strange thing.. .The El-Cheapo that General RV gave me in 2005.. Is still in service... Not often (It normally remains in the pipe I store it in) but..... It don't leak.
Wa8yxm,
An extremely good question, thanks for asking! Our expectation for this hose is that it should be the last sewer hose you will ever buy, unless you need an extension hose. We spent more than 3 years, first designing the perfect RV sewer hose, then finding a manufacturer up to the challenge of building it. We believe about the only way the hose can be destroyed is by being cut with a knife, fire or shot with a bullet. We are working on making it bullet proof! To that end if you ever have a problem with the hose (under normal usage) let us know and we will take care of it.

Doug

Thanks... If I can find a way to afford it I will consider your product.

For extension hoses, on those rare occasions, I can afford to use throw aways. (Which by the standard you just gave includes every other product on the market)

When my hose falls apart I would buy the Polychute because of the smooth interior. That is pretty clever. Joe

HI Rich,
I am listing here the some of the makeup of our Polychute hose:

Industrial TPV Grade Hose
External Helical Wear Barrier
Spring Effect (No Wire)
Crush Proof
Abrasion Proof
Puncture Proof
UV and Fire Proof

We feel with normal daily use, our hose is indestructible, but we have not done the “365 days in the Nevada sun” test. Please check out the full story of our Polychute hose and thank you for your question.

Thank you

Well I guess I can't ask for more than that, I'll give it a shot when I need a new setup. As long as you back it up.

i just wanted to welcome drainmaster to the group and thank them for some of the best service since fantastic vent! when i decided to switch over to drainmaster electric valves i wanted to change our 1 1/2" grey water to 3" which entailed building a new manifold. called them and they walked me through it and sent me all the parts necessary for the conversion. as you can see it worked out great! what a great system and what great people do deal with jimsue

Dan the twist lock adapter looks large, I have to pass my hose through a port hole in the compartment floor. What is the diameter of the lock, and could it be dissambled to pass through the port hole?

Thanks

fred

Hi Fred,
The outer diameter of the Polylock is 4.5:. Most pass throughs are 6" diameter. The Polylock cannot be disassembled, we did that on purpose! We stock 8" pass-through's for those wanting to pass the nozzle through while leaving the hose connected on the coach end.

Can you post a photo of the 8 inch pass through so we can see what you are referring to. Thanks

I called Drain Master a couple days ago and talked to a gentleman named Doug. I can say that our 37 minute conversation convinced me to go to Hollister and buy the set-up next week. I can tell there is going to be support after I make my purchase and that means a lot in this day and age. I will be installing the 8" in order to make room. I look forward to tossing all the "Cheapo" sewer connections I have.

I plan on buying the Polychute system and the extension. That will give me a total of 32ft and if I need to go more then 32ft to dump I'll find a better place to camp..

LeeB - we got the same - 20' + the extension - awesome products!!! They work very well & no leaks or stink! Agree on length too! !! Just move to better spot!
First thing you'll do is throw away all the leaking stinking " old " hoses!! Enjoy!

Used the polychute for the first time last week. Used it at the dump station on our way out of camp and liked the way it worked. The tub it comes with is great for storage with the locking cover. I like the clear view sections at both ends.
