Rariton Sanitation Hose

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.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
