Been using the same "brown one" brand from Walmart for the last five years. I have no IDEA what the brand is.

I too think Walmart has the best deal. It might not be the best (might too) but for the money it is thick and comes in a 20' length. Get them and use all bayonet connectors and make an extension. You will be covered.

The best hose I have found is called Tigerduct from a company call Kuriyama of America. This stuff is available from Industrial Hose / Tubing distributors. You can easily attach Valterra connectors from CW and your then golden. It puts Rhino and the others to shame.

My favorite one is the one that doesn't leak.

Not really more expensive, when you add in that you don't need the elevator, storage tube, replacement hoses, gloves and the convenience cleanliness, and reliability. And you don't need to worry about what kind of TP to use. Sewer Solutions just flushes it all away. Self cleaning. And packs up in a small package. The last sewer hose you will ever need to buy. Carolina Cruiser has it right. JMHO

Maybe cheaper for you, but not for me, and I am not talking money. I built my own.

Don't you have to have water pressure for the sewer solution to work. I know most dump stations have water available but some do not. Even the ones with water do not have a hose or some have a hose on a spring with short reach and a radiator filler nozzle, not a screw on connector.

I made my own sewer solution from plans someone posted here 3-4 yrs ago. It worked fine when I had water pressure and a hose connection but was useless with no way to attach a pressure hose. I find it easier to just attach the slinky, pull the handle, and be done. With the SS you attach the sewer solution, attach a smaller but still slinky like hose, attach a pressure hose, turn on hose, open valve, wait for tanks to drain, and then pack it all (two coils of hose and the SS itself) back up. Plus, the tanks take a lot longer to drain with the SS. I hate getting behind some SS person at the dump station.

So I guess you have to choose the dump stations you use or is there some aspect of the sewer solution I am missing.

PS: I have only bought one slinky in the last 6 years and do not have any other expense. No "elevator",gloves, or any other replacement items. I do agree that $100 is not a significant expense if you like it better, I prefer my old but reliable brown slinky.

With my SS the hose is always connected to the twist on connector. Just twist on to the dump drain and connect the quick connect pressure hose. I have never seen a dump station that does not have a water hose. Some with no connector, but a simple push on 'Bandit' gets you connected. My SS has a very durable non-corrugated polyethylene hose. Nothing like a slinky.

When done dumping just Snap off the pressure hose, untwist the SS and roll it up and put it away. No need to rinse and clean the hose. The fresh water pressure hose has already accomplished that task.

The other advantage is that it will pump uphill. Very handy in some campgrounds I have been in.

The SS does take a little longer to drain. But we usually get sewer sites anyway. If we use a dump station, we use it at non peak hours.

Sewer Solution. Love it. Used it now for 6 years - - love it. Stores small, durable, cleans itself. Store 20' of hose in less space than a 6' brown fountain hose.
