I'm hoping somebody can help...

I need to replace the direct outlet hose from this y-valve to its seacock. (looks like PO used a flexible grey vacuum cleaner hose! - strange, the other hoses are all 'proper' white hose, but I don't know where to find more)


Jabsco says it's has 40 mm ports, but W/worths don't seem to supply hose that big, and I can't seem to find any pipe with a 40mm ID.

I did find this:
but I don't know whether it's appropriate - its ID is 38mm, does that mean I'll need to manipulate it on? (using heat I'd imagine)

If this isn't the right way to go, could somebody point me in the right direction please. I only need about 1.5m.
Many thanks in advance.

I'd try blackwoods they're in most places or a pump specialist

Thanks woko. I'd never heard of blackwoods before.
Had a look online, but couldn't find anything, they only had 40mm OD hose, so same problem

Thanks guys, found the problem - w/worths online details says 40mm, but the hardcopy catalogue says "suits hose sizes 38mm". Easy fix - appropriate 38mm ID hose is readily available .
