Adaptor for waste pipe

When I find myself on a fully serviced pitch,  I find I have to tie my 10m length of spare corrugated waste pipe (standard caravan type) to the waste outlet of my Autosleeper Broadway. Is there any adaptor that will fit into the corrugated pipe, then onto my outlet tap? I can't seem to find any other posts re this.

Can’t help with your issue but if there is an adaptor these guys will know. The website can be a bit tricky to navigate but most things water related are on there somewhere!

We have a Gardena tap fitting that pushes on to the drain tap. It has a thumb screw to tighten it but it fits quite tightly so its enough just pushed on. We have a length of old water pipe with a female Gardena fitting. So far we have managed most serviced pitches with the hose on its own. If we are using the waste container we have a short length of pipe that just fits into the container below the tap.

Minos using Glynes solution would put a severe restriction ie waste pipe going from around 28mm diameter to about 8 inside the hozelock push on fitting . I would take your corrugated hose and the outside diameter of the drain tap to your nearest plumbers/ tool station  / screwfix and see if any of the 32m  solvent weld range of pipe fittings could be adapted. I have done exactly as you did but found  it better for the waste tap to be a loose fit inside the corrugated waste pipe going to the drain. This allowed air to enter and smoothed the flow as an airtight seal caused water /air glugging  back up through the sink and flow was poor. Allowing a little air to enter at the waste tap connection smoothed flow and stopped air travelling back up the pipe. In the end I only used it a couple of times  as you were left with finding somewhere to store 10m of smelly corrugated hose!

Try a Colapz flexwaste pipe kit. Brilliant piece of kit. Not cheap at about £25 but as its pull out corrugated pipe it closes to a compact size. Comes with flexible rubber ends and a cleaning brush. One of the  best things I've bought in a long

In the end I've tie-wrapped a rubber caravan awning band to the end of the corrugated waste pipe. This now loops over the outlet tap and the waste outlet sits in the pipe.

You can get 28.5mm corrugated hose (for example I got 10 m from Go outdoors.)  It is a reasonably tight fit onto the autosleepers tap.  I used to use a hose fitting but the hose was rather narrow and could block up.  It is a normal caravan size but not always easy to get.

Hi All,

Having seen the 'colapz' on another forum I thought it was a good idea exept for the fact I would be scrubbing out dirty corrugated pipe, splashback perhaps?

I searched on line for 'smooth bore black corrugated pipe' and purchased 25mm bore pipe x 3mtrs. Tenner delivered. It was a 'push' fit on my previous van, bit looser on the Rienza, so I'll fettle it to fit.

Use it, disconect it, swing arround dirt out, pack away, no smell.

Hope this helps.





Cheers
