    WELL I GOT ONE.

    I assume you mean the pump/macerator that fits on the RV waste gate outlet.

    Works very well.

    Just don't use any push fit connectors as they block and restrict outlet flow.:thumb:

    Hi Lyndon

    Yeah I've got one good piece of kit works well mine can pump 30/40 mtrs no problem. I use couplings from Freedom in Tewksbury but I'm sure Linda can get them cheaper make sure you get good couplings though terrible mess otherwise.

    From the pump I have about 2'6" of grey corrugated hose then I use various lenghts of blue 1" lay flat to the dump point. This allows the outgoing fluid to gain momentum before it hits the lay flat which if cold can be hard for the pump to open. I also always pump through some grey waste first just enough to make sure the hose is fully open then change to black and then back to grey. You need various lenghts of lay flat, if thats what you choose, which you can connect together because Murphy says you'll always be a few feet short but you don't want to add another 30ft if you can help it.

    Hope this helps
    Good Luck :thumb:

    Hi Lindon There seems to be two types, one has prongs which allow it to fit directly onto the 3" sewer outlet, the other needs a reducer. Personally and I have no proof of this, but I think the second one is more likely to get a blockage in the reducer pipe.

    Some of the cheaper ones seem to lack power from what others have said.

    Olley is right I forgot that. Mine is the one with the prongs which fits straight onto the outlet and has plenty of power did'nt fancy the other type myself.

    Mine came from Lynda and VERY pleased with it.

    I do however like to dump from time to tome normally so you get the whoosh effect that I feel clear any debris in the tank.

    Waste is though normal hose pipe.

    As it happens walked into delivery from her today on time as usual.

    Glad the deliveries got there chaps! :winky:

    I keep the portable macerator kits Lyndon, they fit straight on to your sewer outlet and have a corded remote control so you can stand well back in case of emergencies :roflmto:

    I also keep the hose connectors if you need them.

    Cheers
    Linda

    PS You will get 10% discount on your order :winky:

    PPS.......is that you bidding on my macerator on Ebay? :Blush:

    Hi
    Flojet is a good piece of kit, make sure you use correct size cable , you don't want a lack of power when you need it the most!!!!!
