Best hose for your waste lines. Let me tell you that if you have black waste this hose will get it to the right place. It's stiff but durable.

        Do not use below water line

          Comments about Series 148 Multi-Purpose Vinyl Hose:

          This hose looks great, but very difficult to install and it crack over time. I would not use it below the water line. You might just forget to shut your thru hull valve some day and you dont want to have toilet hose sink your boat. Use the rubber metal inforced hose for below water line. Great for things like toilet to the tank, or tank to the deck fitting.
