Any recommendations?

My Connie has three heads and they are all very low elevation. Fortunately they are crowns with macerator s. I did not want to buy a y for each one so I a
Have a single ball valve at the bottom of the tank then a macerator pump to through hull.

I know I'm late on this threadů
I had the same problem as everyone else fitting sanitary lines. I tried all the same things mentioned here. Finally, while at WM I asked and they sold me this stuff:
WEST MARINE Hoselube at West Marine

When I used it the hose slipped on without any effort. Now, I keep a bottle on the boat at all times. Works great with the heavy duty ribbed bilge pump lines too!

You can get the same stuff at an auto parts store. "Radiator Hose Grease". I've been using it for years.

Hoses should never have to have any sealant to prevent leaks. You either have mismatched hoses and fittings or you're doing it wrong.
