Sewer Hose Suggestions

We are looking to upgrade our sewer hose. Any suggestions for brand and make/model to purchase? We tend to camp in areas where we need a decent amount of hose length. Thanks in advance.

Rhino Brand seems to be a good product. We have one and are very satisfied with it.
Look on Amazon.com you'll see plenty of options.
Check with Tweetys.com, they sponsor our Forum

Best regards,
Doug

I have been using the Sewer Solution (water propelled macerator) for the past couple years and like it a lot. Look for the video on the operation. I have pumped 30 feet with it and supposedly it can go much farther than that. Tweety's also sells it.

Not that anyone asked...

That Sewer "Solution" seems like a real waste of potable water for doing what mean old mister gravity will do for nothing. Venturi type pumps are very inefficient when it comes to water usage.

There is real environmental overhead for every gallon of potable water which we use. There is the energy to pump the water to the treatment facility. There is energy needed to pump the water around during treatment. There is energy and raw materials used to make and add the chemicals used during treatment. Then there is the energy needed to pump the water up to pressure to distribute it in the water system for your use. In this case it gets even worse. The "Solution" is dumping extra perfectly clean water into the system which then needs to be treated as wastewater. Treating wastewater to discharge into the waterways has all the energy consumption I mentioned earlier for treating potable water.

I'm not a green nut, but I do try to minimize my wasting of our resources.

As to it being able to flush out a black water tank better... How clean does it need to be? It's always used to hold the same old sh*t. It's not like you are going to eat out of it.

Sorry to go on. vic

Interesting analysis. My local water company brags about it only costing .01/gallon to deliver water to my tap. As per your analysis I would have thought it would have been much more expensive. BTW I do have a sewer solution but I haven't used it in several years since I moved from where my sewer drain was just a tap into the cleanout trap at the S&B.

Gallons (cubic feet) of water all add up.

My point was the overall impact, not just the money. Does their cost analysis include the sewer charges which are included in most every water bill? The billing theory is that what comes in must go out through the sewer system and needs treatment. I wonder how the campground feels about supplying extra water and more sewer charges for their dump station use?

Another observation is that many of us camp in areas where drought is a real problem. We use their local resources and drive away so I guess it's not our problem then? Cost isn't always the only factor.

The purpose of posting my use analysis on the "Solution" was to provide information to those who may have a concern. As was mentioned above, anyone can do whatever they want in the good old U.S. of A.
