Roger is right. People don't realize that all hoses are not created equal. Hot tub hose LOOKS like "standard" sanitation hose (sched 148 flexible PVC, which is the cheapest marine sanitation hose), and costs even less which lures people into buying it... but it's not the same and will permeate even faster. Nor is it rated for below-waterline connection, which if your tank is set up to be dumped at sea, is another reason it's a bad choice.

I've surveyed only three President 37's. Unfortunately all three had aluminum holding tanks. You may have a much bigger problem than some bad hose.

Raritan's list price is $15.00, making $9.90 a very good price. As is all too often true, WM's price is 20% above list. It pays to shop!

There should be writing on the new hoses...it will tell me whether it'll last a while. Still curious to know the make/model/age of your toilet(s)

I just redid my entire system (two heads) with Trident 102 hose. About $400 for fifty feet from Go2Marine. I hope I don't have to do that job again for a while. Less than $8 a foot.

"Worst Marine" gets away with this by having walk in locations,

Defender requires planning ahead.

This is definitely NOT a job to worry much about hose pricing. Choose only from the two options that Peggie offered.

I have raritans that are around 5 years old. At least that's what the last owner told me. Not sure the model but they are electric.

FWIW, I think WM offers a service that's sometimes worth what they charge. I know it costs a lot for them to stock one each of everything in the free world (well, OK, maybe each store isn't THAT well stocked)...

But OTOH, when someone needs a part for an unplanned project -- like something just broke, and the fix needs to happen RIGHT NOW! -- a 20% mark-up (or whatever) over MSRP isn't always all that important. (Yes, planning ahead is better... when it's possible...)

And they have to pay those pesky clerks...

IOW, I don't begrudge them trying to make a profit...

If our closest local WM closed, that'd be about 15 people out of a job...

Raritan has 3 electric toilets (4 if you count the electrified version of the manual PH II). You need to know which one(s) you have because you need the owners manual(s) to know how to maintain them and identify parts. Can you post a photo? Two photos if they're different toilets...

They appear to be Raritan SeaEras...you can download the owners from here:
Raritan SeaEra owners manual

However, I'm not sure about the one with brown discharge hose...it appears to be 1" hose, which only Jabsco uses. If you'd like to discuss your whole system in more specific detail than is practical in open forum, send me a private message...I'm always glad to help.

fishpcb and Peggie,Looking at the base, the toilet on the right (dark hose)looks much like the(noisy)Jabsco we just fitted.

It is a very loud head. Plus water only comes out about half of the ring. It has not been used much the last couple years. This head has new tank and hose so I've been working on the old one and replacing the hose as soon as it gets here.
