Create long sewer hose

At home I can hook my trailer up to my septic system. Need 100 feet of sewer hose. Anybody build their own or have a ready made solution?

I know the concerns about using home septic system. Asking about a solution for 100 foot hose.

I concur although 100 ft might be a reach. I have used almost 50 ft with PVC pipe at home to my cleanout plug. Plenty of water pressure for that.

Go to the hardware store and get 3" ABS pipe, usually 10 or 20 foot lengths, Couplers , bushings, and any other 45's or 90s', etc.

Get on line and order the RV sewer hose to ABS adapters from Valtera or Camco, etc.

Lay it all out, glue it and screw it all together. done. Have a cold one and try it out.

3" PVC pipe should do nicely. Be sure to establish a gradient between 1/4" and 3" per foot. Less than that leaves you open to clogging; more than that may allow the liquid to drain without the solids

You could also consider having a professional install the correct "dump connection" that is convenient to where you park your AS

I go over 100' to the sewer cleanout at home. I use the Sewer Solution with a combination of Sewer Solution flexible hose and 1.5" PVC. I have been using this for over ten years and it works perfectly. I also use the Sewer Solution on the road and have been using it for thirteen years.

Since it's your home, do it right.
Use 3" PVC with clean outs buried just as if it was from a house.
Leave a capped entry near where you park the trailer.
Why bother with 100' of hose?

One reason to use a sewer solution, or Flojet system is when you have a situation where the trailer is parked level with or even slightly below the cleanout for the house...meaning putting in dedicated lines with the proper pitch is not possible without completely rebuilding the septic system. However using a system that pumps the fluids does move it to the cleanout in fine fashion.

Create long sewer hose

The 3-inch pipe concept will work if you are able to achieve the proper slope from the RV to the septic tank/line. The sewer solution works where there is no slope, or there is a slightly up hill grade. The Sewer Solution is as close to “ready made” as one can reasonably expect. Outside of the kit purchase, all you need are some lengths of 1-inch bell end pvc, or standard pvc and couplings. We have one in use on a full time hookup to a septic tank line. Our 1-inch pvc is buried and tee’s into the top of the 4-inch line.

Just my $0.02.

Sewer Solution is the answer to your problem. We had one for several years, at a couple places where we set up, we've pumped over 100 feet, with up to a 2 foot rise over that 100 feet. I use PVC thin wall pipe, and cut it into 4 foot sections with couplers that connect each piece. a 3/4" conduit will connect to standard hose that comes with the Sewer Solutions to the PVC pipe.

It' a great product.....for whatever it's worth.

I did the PVC pipe and was happy as a clam. Until the code enforcement officer visited and advised it was a code violation to have the pipe above ground!
