Aft Head

I have a 1983 36 Albin ..... The aft cabin head toilet I would like to run PVC pipping to the holding tank. The PO had only partically replaced the white hose bu the original hose is still connected and going into the holing tank. Has anyone attempted to do this and if so how was it done ... thanks

Yes...I just cut it in lengths to get under the floor boards and joined with couplers....could have just done it down the inside of the stringers under the engine mounts but didn't.


Yes I have a 40 but very similar with a single engine.

I haven't attempted this and won't because I have a short but convoluted run, but I believe the hose and pipe sizes are different. I think somebody makes adapters.

The thing I would be concerned about is that hose is flexible and PVC pipe is not. If I were doing this I think I would use a short piece of hose at each end to allow for movement.

Greetings,
Mr. WK. "...to allow for movement." Bowl movement I hope.
Mr. K. Innuendo aside, I agree with the addition of short pieces of flex hose.

I have a 40 and ran mine like psneeld did but used hose at each end as described above.

YES.
BOTH for flexibility and because the connecting bends necessary were too hard to duplicate with PVC.
