black water hose

Hi ,
after 5 years one of the discharge hose of the BW tank on a lagoon 500 needs replacement ...
lagoon had the smart idea to install a 60mmm ID hose, huge diameter, great for quick discharge, but unfortunately not a standard size
So far impossible for me to find ..
I even contacted the manufacturer in Italy and they told me it is a special size they make specifically for lagoon/benetau, so not possible to buy on the market.
They said I could get from their distributor in France, but they only sell the 50' roll (??!)
Has anybody had the same problem before?
How did you fix it?

Re: black water hose

Any possibility of replumbing with PVC rigid pipe and maybe a short section of the existing hose for any needed flex area?
I've read threads here on CF where people have done it and been very happy with the results.
