Not even a hint of hyperbole. Hunter may have used Trident hose, but 101/102 isn't the only sanitation hose that Trident makes. It's highly unlikely that Hunter would have used 101/102, which is a double-walled rubber hose with a green stripe that has a list price of $10 + Trident #101 Sanitation Hose Trident #10 2Sanitation Hose - and it is indeed VERY stiff. It's been on the market for 20+ years without a single reported odor permeation failure...something I don't THINK you can say about the hose you just replaced on your boat. I'd bet serious real money that the hose Hunter used was this one Trident Sanitation Hose #148 flex PVC. 'Cuz it or the identical Shields #148 flex PVC is what all production builders use.A bit of hyperbole to say that the Trident hose is as stiff as an ironing board, since that is what Hunter used originally
This is all I could find in search for it: http://jgbhose.com/data_returns/detail_company.asp?prod_id=903846&id=139 No mention of sanitation in the list of its uses. I don't know of any water hose that's rated for below-waterline connection either.....turns out Hunter used a Lawrence brand Smart Flex water system hose for our boat's sanitation system. More to follow.
Hi Lee, I'm of the old school if it is not broken don't fix it. The forward head still works just fine, but seldom used. Maybe some day I'll replace that hose, but for now money will go towards other projects, such as a head sail repair. If you would like to send some of your extra money this way I would be very happy to spend it. Our money tree is a bit sparse this year.why not remove and replace all sanitation hoses
Thanks for that tip. Made a big difference in how smoothly the new hose slid through. Some concern that the new hose would separate from the old as we were pulling it through. Then to my surprise at how difficult it was to remove the old/new hose from the fitting. Sheesh, what a grip!We used a double barbed plastic connector to connect the old and new hose.
It's a lot easier if you warm the hose first. I always used a blow dryer 'cuz, unlike a heat gun, it can't overheat the hose.Then to my surprise at how difficult it was to remove the old/new hose from the fitting. Sheesh, what a grip!
You'd be amazed at how much scale can reduce the diameter of a hose...see attached photo...and I've seen worse than that. In warm waters, which have a lot more sea water minerals than cooler water, scale can reduce the diameter of a 1.5" hose to 1/4" inch in just a couple of months.Seemed unlikely that scale clogged it completely shut without some help from an object dropped into the toilet.
Crusty mineral deposits from years of use. Combination of sea water flushing and human waste, some of which never made it into the holding tank at the end of a cruise would remain at a low point in the hose until the system became active with the next cruise. I place a lot of blame on the PO. I've been very diligent about flushing fresh water through both toilets at the end of each cruise. But it is what it is. New hose works great.Not to bring up an old post, but you never mentioned what actually clogged your hose?
After every cruise (almost) I put about a quart of vinegar into the head hoses to set there while I close up the boat. Fresh water flush, and it has lasted 13 years so far...., some of which never made it into the holding tank at the end of a cruise would remain at a low point...
