Trying to save room as I am running out of storage. Thinking of using this hose for Shurflo macerator. Anyone use something like this? Will it work? opinions?

Storage where? - in your trailer? If so, why do you need 50' of 3/4" hose when all you need is a long enough length of 1/2" to reach from your macerator to whatever you're transferring the macerated contents to, usually a tank of some sort sitting in the back of your truck. For use at home I do use a 50' 3/4" output hose but of course storage in this scenario isn't an issue. All that said, I've never used a roll flat hose like this for this purpose as it's way to expensive but I see no reason it wouldn't work.

I use these. Coil up like string - but just don't ever run over it!

The one campground where i would use the macerator the most is set up for MH's. When I back in all my hookups are on the wrong side and my sewer hookup is at least 30 ft. from my outlet. I don't want to carry 50' of hose but due to circumstances I really don't have a choice. This is usually a 14 day stay and 10 hours away from home so we are loaded and storage becomes an issue. I guess I could always make the room to save some $$$. Thanks. I'll take a look at the one 2oldman posted.

2oldman...I see by your review on Amazon that the hose is smaller id then you expected. Does it still work alright as a discharge hose? Even going 35-40 ft?

The hose you selected will work fine IMO.

It is smaller than I expected but it does work. What it doesn't work well for is slow-draining the gray tank.

I used a couple hundred feet of the roll flat lightweight pool hose to dump the holding tanks from the 5th wheel to the dump station. The Flojet burned up before the tank was empty. Will get a macerater before I try it again.

I use a 1” lay flat discharge hose with my macerater all the time when dumping at home and it works just fine.
