To make this hose work, I attached the 1½-inch hose to a threaded hose barb fitting that screws into the drain manifold on my tubes. Now, when we're done using the tubes, I simply unscrew the hose and roll it up on itself. You can now store 15 to 20 feet of drain hose inside one of the tubes. It's a good idea to put a short piece of hard, rigid pipe or another hose barb fitting at the terminal end of the hose to hold it open. This helps eliminate any back pressure in the drain system.
