Between the odor and working in confined spaces, replacing an onboard sanitation line is never a pleasant job. With Sani/Flex Odor Shield Marine Hose from Raritan Engineering, the task can be completed quicker and with fewer expletives. Incredibly strong, it has class-leading flexibility.
The 1.5″ version of Sani/Flex Odor Shield has a bend radius of 3.15″. The 1″ model has an impressive 1.97″ rating. Combined with its suppleness, it’s super-easy to snake the hose around the tightest corners.
With sanitation hose, flexibility is half the equation. Old or poor-quality styles will often seep odors throughout a boat, especially during summer months. Sani/Flex Odor Shield is manufactured from top-quality butyl rubber. It’s 15 times more resistant to emitting noxious smells than common PVC and backed by Raritan’s 10-year warranty against odor permeation.
Sani/Flex Odor Shield is strong, it’s reinforced with double helix steel wire and synthetic textile yarn to provide a maximum pressure value of 105 psi and a 315 psi burst rating. It is also extremely resistant to collapsing from pump suction. Lightweight, the 1.5″ version is 0.6 lb/ft, while the 1″ hose is a mere 0.35 lb/ft.
The white abrasion-resistant cover of Raritan Sani/Flex Odor Shield Marine Hose resists ozone and seawater. Inside, the hose lining is smooth for maximum waste flow. It costs $15.75/ft USD for the 1″ size and $16.50 USD for the 1.5″ version. It’s also available in 10′, 50′ and 100′ rolls.
