Vacuflush Discharge Pipe Into Black Water Tank

Okay... so our vacuflush system failed. Parts on order and will get them in 2 days.

Until then, I started taking everything apart and cleaning them - yea!

While removing the vacuflush pump I was trying to remove the hose from the discharge of the pump (removing the hose clamp, etc.). Unfortunately, the hard pipe that it was connected to came out of the black water tank.

Anyone know what sort of connection that is supposed to be (or how the pipe is attached to the tank) or does it just fit down hole in the top of the tank? Is there a seal that goes between the pipe and the tank?

Same thing happened to me. It just pushes in, sort of some sort of gasket. I applied some silicon grease to the pipe to assist the job. Been about five months now, all is well.

Slight correction I didn't do the repair. Got my skinny, strong tall grandson, then 13, to get his head and shoulders in the compartment to do the job. I lease him out for vacuflush repairs. Freight and feeding is not included.

As long as you got it apart do the bellows and duckbill valves at same time, you will be glad you did.

Thanks.

Was thinking about putting some waterproof tape around it after I stuck the pipe in the hole...

I wouldn't bother. There would be no back pressure on the fitting, My guess is that it uses the gasket so the pipe can swivel during install. There is also one on the vacuum tank and I have never had problems with leakage there.
