I'd like to get a macerator, something like a Seaflo 02 or maybe Larrynwin's Shureflo to dump my black and grey waste tanks at my storage place, where their convenient new dump point has inconveniently been built a foot or so above the ground.

These macerators have 1" plastic? output barbs, and I'd like to use around 10m of 1" layflat hose on a reel to keep it compact and tidy as it'll live in the garage. I think I need a disconnect at the outlet, to avoid forcing dirty water out at the other end as I roll it up.

Are there any converter fittings which will attach to the 1" barb, looks like plastic, and let me connect and disconnect, or will I need to make up a short adapter from hose and jubilee clips? I thought of Speedfit but the biggest fittings don't reach 1".

Any suggestions for a flexible layflat hose on a reel?

You could possibly use something like this as a coupling

I think Coastal Cruiser. has one as well?
I do indeed Jon
Have a macerator set up with about 60m of solid pipe.
Never went for the lay flat as have had issues with that sort of pipe when used on construction sites before.

This photo when testing is the only time it’s been out of the box in over 18 months as with many trips in the UK and Europe I have yet to be stuck to find a drive over dump every time.
When I return home I have a gully grating that I installed on my new drive where the van parks and it goes straight out down the main sewer 😁😁
Another item I thought I would need and it’s done probably 10’000 miles stored in the van garage 😂😂

Manic Thanks for the suggestions, the solvent welded demountable connectors might work if I can find one close enough to the 1" outlet on the Seaflo, and if the housing is solvent-weldable.

jongood Yes, that's the one. Cheap, and has a water hose connection for cleaning up before disconnecting. (y)

That's because you bought a new gully! What's the outlet fitting and is it demountable?

Coastal Cruiser. Looks tidy.

I can't quite see, is that one of those 2-part Uniflo fittings with a jubilee clip on each end? So they're flexible enough to clamp onto the outlet pipe?

Have a small hard rubber pipe from the pump outlet held on with a jubilee to this fitting.
Other end on the flexi pipe.

jongood No, funnily enough not! Does this fall into the category of a solution in search of a problem, or is there something you'd care to share about the state of your black tanks? :LOL: Looks like it might take quite a while to start to back fill the black tank, if that's the aim.

On a related note, what do you all reckon to the provision of a hose connector on these macerators? I thought it would be useful to clean up more thoroughly before the kit goes back into the garage, or no need if it's flushed with the grey water?

And are there any layflat hoses which won't stick or rot if they're left rolled up for long periods?

I just like stuff to be clean! there's a reason later black tank setups have cleaning inputs 😁
