    My CI has a waste water outlet buried deep beneath the van, it is 60mm in diameter and protrudes a mere 25mm. Emptying it accurately into a drain is an art form, one I have not yet perfected. I would like to fix some sort of flexi-hose to it (have bought the jubilee clip in anticipation) but cannot find a supplier who stocks the necessary piping. Has anyone solved this and is willing to pass on their wisdom?

    On a site recently I noticed there were a selection of houshold plumbing fittings/pipe in different configurations for this very purpose, would that work, ie work out what you need and make up and carry with you?

    I do often look at European vans and ponder this as few of the sites we've been to seem properly practical for grey emptying?

    fixed this 1 easily, 500 mil water bottle cut off bottom this fit over outlet. drill hole in centre of cap about 1 inch in diameter normal caravan waste pipe fits exactly over this , just drill a coule of small holes in side of bottle to put string through this then ties on to stop bottle falling off , if you need a picture ask

    Thank you all, your accumulated advice has solved my problem, a cut off 500ml coke bottle, a 60/70mm jubilee clip to hold it on, 1m of pond pipe from the garden centre for £3.45 and a 30mm jubilee clip, and some string. Sorted.
    Thanks again.

    It's nice to know that in this age of technology things can still be fixed with an old pop bottle, a jubilee clip, a bit of pipe and some string.
    Pure magic.
