Sanitation and Vent Hose Lengths

Kim Chapman

I removed the medicine cabinet in the aft head. Also cut out the toilet paper holder. There is also the access cover in the aft shower. This maximizes the access. To pull the new hose through I securely attached it to the old hose and then pulled from the aft head. A second person pushing from the holding-tank end is necessary.

I know that one owner actually replaced this hose with rigid PVC. If I were to do it again I would do this. More challenging but also a more permanent solution. Probably save some cash also.

I would like tips on how to replace the sanitation hose from the aft head to the holding tank in the main salon.  Impossibly long run behind nav station and poor access to connect under the cabinet to the head.

I'm looking at replacing all the 1-1/2 sanitation hoses and vent hoses on a 2006 400 two cabin boat.
Can anyone tell me how much of each hose size 1-1/2: and vent hose  would be needed to replace all those hoses?
