Sewer hose

I just thought this might help some of our members on supporting their sewer hose. I took two 10' pieces of 4" sewer pipe and split them down the middle, lengthways. I cut one in half so it gives me 2, 5' sections.

Now I have a sewer hose support that will take care of almost any situation and is very easy to set up for drain angle. If you need to go a long distance to the hookup just overlap the sections about 6" and you can geter'done.

Sounds like you came up with a greta solution to the sagging sewer hose problem.

Get a Sewer Solution setup and you can store 20' of hose in a bucket and not have to worry about supporting it. Sure love mine.

Ditto the SS. We have one for each of our rigs and love them. They perform great and they even flow up a slight incline. No more sagging drain issues and they clean and store easily.

So what happens at a dump station without a water hose connection? Do you carry a regular 3" hose just in case? Does the ss ever plug up?

I carry a normal "brown fountain" 6'er in the hose storage in the side of the coach. Hardly ever use it. Plug up? Never has in 5 years of using it. I also carry a 7' pvc pipe I use in the middle of it perchance I need the extra length - - I can reach right at 30' with that setup. Sure worked great in Mexico - - everyone was using it to dump their rigs in several stops.

We just got the Flowjet sani pump and hope it will do the job.
I do think that you have a great idea for storing your dump hose.

I have a sewer solution I made. Its a little bigger than the commercial but works just as well. Will pump up hill and out to 60'. I forgot to turn on water one time while dumping black and worked fine, just flushed lines out. I only turn water on to flush gray water, not whille using. Mike

Good information! I have seen those flowjets and other new systems advertised but never seen one used. I use PVC when ever we are someplace for any extended time. Never an issue.

Sounds interesting. Do you have any pictures or details? Might be something I would like to try. Jerry
