    Unfortunately I lost my grey water drain pipe and tap to a large rock in a layby in France. I jury rigged a stopper until we got home but now need to replace the pipe and tap. So far the local motorhome dealers have been unable to supply.
    My van is a Bessacar e560 and the only remaining piece of pipe shows 25/32 x 1 " as its size.
    Am I better off trying swift dealers or going to a plumbing outlet to sort it out.
    Whilst I'm at it is it worth replaceing the rigid hose with a flexible one?:Eeek:

    Hi had same problem - went to a local plumber who fixed a stainless steel drain tap at the end of the pipe, Job sorted.
    Just need to leave drain tap open in winter to stop it freezing up.

    From my experience most are std 32mm or 40mm plastic available in most diy places, try swimming pool or fish pond stuff for a suitable tap.
