I can't remember if I got it at Home Depot or I ordered it from Mc Master Carr. I know Home Depot carrys it (or at least they did at that time) but they may not have had a 75' length in stock. I'm not sure you need anything this fancy. At the time I bought it the price was around $.75 per foot. It's now over $3.00 per foot from McMaster Carr

I finally picked up a macerator. Does anyone use a flat pvc discharge hose with theirs? It appears that several UK campers do and I wonder just how if they are strong enough?

I built this Macerator and been working great

I needed some type of macerator pump for my RV for pump out but..... FlowJet was too long to fit in compartment. I wanted it to use the standard 3" bayonet fitting, be small enough to fit in the compartment, and as bullet proof as possible. Researched steered me to marine ShureFlo pump. I build the adapter for under $15. Here is a link to the pictures Home Made RV Macerator Pump

A big drawback to making one from a garbage disposal unit is, it has no pump. You are limited to gravity draining, not good if you need to reach a drain some distance away on uphill ground.

I like your self-made maceration pump!

Well what I see here is a big problem using the homemade garbage disposal as a macerator is that you can only use it when you have AC power. If you really want a macerator then either buy one of the systems or just buy the 12vdc macerator and do all of your own hookups. Once you go macerator you will not go back to sewer tube again.
My MH comes with one for the front Black tank and I added one to the dump station to do the rest of the tanks. SWEEEEEEEET
Nothing beats opening the valve and starting the pump and just waiting until she is done. Clean hands and no Sewer Tube, just a 1" stinky slinky to put away.
