Caravan Grey Water & Sullage Hose

13 Products.

Sullage hoses, also known as grey water hoses are an essential component in managing the waste water from your caravan. They serve as the conduit through which grey water is transferred from your caravan to an appropriate disposal point, ensuring that your waste water is handled in an environmentally responsible manner.

Understanding Grey Water Hoses

First off, what's grey water? No, it's not a new trendy drink. Grey water is the used water from your caravan's shower and sinks. Managing it properly prevents you from turning your campsite into a mini swamp. Plus, it keeps the environment clean, making you a hero in sandals and shorts!

Caravan grey water hoses are specially designed to transport this water to a proper disposal point.

Choosing the Right Sullage Hose

Not all hoses are created equal, especially when they're handling something as glamorous as grey water. Consider the length - too short, and you're playing tug-of-war with your caravan. Too long, and it's a trip hazard for your midnight snack runs. Material matters too; you want something durable yet flexible, like a good yoga instructor.

And let's talk bore size - this isn't a dull topic, we promise! The diameter of your hose affects drainage efficiency. Choose wisely to avoid any unwanted water fights with a rebellious hose.

Benefits of Using a Quality Sullage Hose

Investing in a quality sullage hose means you're opting for hygiene and convenience. These hoses help keep your site dry and odour-free, which is always a plus if you're trying to impress your camping neighbours.

Environmentally, you're also doing your bit. A good hose ensures that grey water goes where it should, reducing the risk of soil and water contamination. Feel free to brag about how eco-friendly you are at your next campfire gathering!

Step-by-Step Guide to Connecting Your Sullage Hose

Connecting your sullage hose isn't rocket science, but here's a quick guide to avoid any watery mishaps. First, ensure your hose fits snugly to your caravan's outlet. It's like matchmaking - the perfect fit makes for a happy caravan.

Next, lay your hose in a gradual decline towards the disposal point to prevent any backflow scenarios. Think of it as setting up a mini roller coaster for the water. Finally, secure the connection with a hose clip - because no one likes unexpected surprises, especially of the watery kind!

Maintenance and Care for Sullage Hoses

After playing its part, your hose deserves some TLC. Rinse it through with clean water after each trip to prevent any residue build-up.

For storage, ensure your hose is dry and coiled correctly. This prevents kinks and extends its life, so it's ready for your next adventure without any grumbles.
