Re: Sewage Hose or PVC Pipe ?

It seems amazing out of 60 posts that the most important part of this endeavor was only mentioned ONCE. Whether its the 'approved' sewage hose, the clear stuff, or PVC.


The SEACOCKS. I know where mine are. I make sure they are maintained. And most importantly (even at work) I have several bags of wooden plugs) Both on a 125' 4300 HP tug, and a little 30' Ranger. There is no issue of broken pipes (PVC or otherwise). The valves are OFF until used, shut while boat is unoccupied (Unless of course it is at work with a Duty Engineer on staff)

Re: Sewage Hose or PVC Pipe ?

A few of you have said that you have areas where using schedule 40 PVC pipe is just not possible.

My Hose Foil Tape Method may help you with your smelly hose issues.

Of course you still want to use the best possible sanitation hose. The best hose right now is Trident Premium Sanitation Hose in white or black. It has the Maximum Resistance to Odor Permeation and a 5 year warranty. You can also look at Shields Poly X Sanitation Hose or a SeaLand's OdorSafe Plus Sanitation Hose.

To add more odor free life to it, try putting a foil tape jacket on the hose before installation.

You can also add the foil tape on after the hose is installed if it's a small hose and you have a bit of room around it. It goes on easily and neatness is not needed.

After it’s installed you can easily put a patch on any tears.

The Multi-Purpose Foil Tape (HVAC) is 2” inches wide x 50 yards on a roll and one roll will go a long way.

Here are a few pictures I took to help you with this type of project.
