Marine Elegance Installation Question.

Does anyone know off hand if its ok to cut off the narrow hose connection from the larger one on the toilet outflow line that goes to the holding tank? I have looked through the instructions and they say its 'ok' to leave it on if using the larger 1.5" hose, so to me that means its ok to chop it.

I need to make a very tight 45 degree bend immediately after the exit of this line from the toilet with a bronze 45 elbow, so removing the smaller diameter portion would help with flow i think.

Maybe seems like silly question but just want to be sure until i can find an answer. Im not sure if that smaller diameter portion helps the toilet build pressure for vertical runs?

Fitting on bottom.

If the hose you will use is only gripping onto the larger diameter portion, then yes, I would cut it off. I would also open up the restriction that the smaller diameter is creating.

Better than bronze for many installations, these types of fittings can solve all kinds of difficult plumbing issues.

Re: Marine Elegance Installation Question.

This one is above my pay grade. Call Mac McCoy in Raritan tech support on Monday. 800-352-5630 x 306 if you're in the US...1-856-825-4900 x 306 if somewhere 800 #s won't work.

Why are you using a bronze elbow???

Re: Marine Elegance Installation Question.

Just wanted to add an updated reply so that if anyone has the same question in the future and comes across this thread it may save some time.

Raritan tech support confirmed that this fitting should not be cut. There is no flow advantage to doing so and that the fitting was designed to work in and be in the shape that its is. Cutting the smaller end off could/would likely damage it even further.
