The Flat Out Sullage Hose (Grey Water Hose for Caravan & RV)

Especially designed for caravans, campers and motorhomes—suffer your sullage sulks no more!

Sullage hoses are usually large, smelly, brittle in cold weather and difficult to store tidily. We’ve heard storage stories (of other brand hoses) ranging from coiling in a garbage bin in the van shower, to winding around the gas bottle on the draw bar. Our sullage solution is the most compact and easiest to use available in today's market.

Made from heavy duty elastomer, our hoses roll flat onto our Multi-Reels and automatically expand when unspooled to offer high flow grey water disposal. With a flexible smooth finish, they are durable in harsh conditions and collection of debris inside the hose is inhibited. End plugs ensure no leakage or smell when stored.

As the hose is stored without air inside, any microbes remaining will go to sleep rather than reproduce through storage periods, making it the most hygenic sullage hose solution.

Working with a flat hose that is gravity fed, it is important to connect to drain point with the shortest length of hose you have if you wish to achieve maximum flow. All our sullage hoses come in cut lengths with a joiner provided for when the full distance is needed. 

  • Rolls up completely flat
  • Major space saver
  • Durable and Flexible
  • Won't crack in frost
  • No Ribs, flushes clean
  • Most hygenic option
  • Self draining as you wind
  • Versatile lengths with joiner provided
  • Australian made with 3 year warranty

Black vs Grey Multi-Reels 

In 2023 we introduced a new range of Sullage hoses on Matte Black Multi-reels. These new Multi-reels are made from over 95% recycled industrial plastics, with no compromise on strucutral integrity. There is no difference in the hoses for each unit. We have now discontinued production of Flat Out Sullage hoses on Grey Multi-Reels, the lower price for those units is available until sold out.

We recommend this smaller unit if space is your primary concern. You can join additional lengths if required, see 25mm accessories. If you have a washing machine and no grey water tank, please consider the 32mm hose option (M4/M4K).

Jumbo Peg to Secure Sullage Hose - Kingpin Pegs

An easier-to-use alternative to ratchet clamps this jumbo peg (designed for railing) is super strong and when placed correctly will stop your sullage hose slipping. ...read more

Flat Out sullage hoses are designed to fit 25mm or 32mm barbed irrigation fittings and as they are gravity fed, they do not need to be secured against pressure. However, there is slight variance in sizing between different brands for barbed hose tails and you might find your hose a little loose on the fitting to your van. This hurricane strength rail peg will work to keep your hose into position during your stay with the added convenience of super user friendly operation.

The same peg works for both 25 and 32mm connections. Colours are a lucky-dip of red, blue or yellow.


Because they're so handy we also offer them as a pack of 10 so you can use them for many other applications such as:

  • towels/swimwear over thick rails
  • heavy/thick items on the clothes line
  • bundling tent ropes
  • outdoor tablecloth in wind...

Drain Adaptor for Flat Sullage Hose

Used to hook your 25mm or 32mm Flat Out sullage hose into a drain pipe. One end is barbed for you to insert into the end of your sullage hose, the other end is elongated so that it hooks into the drain better. 

The reason you need a drain adaptor is if you were to poke your flat hose into a pipe, you would force a kink, and that will restrict flow. This drain adaptor allows the water to freely change direction.

Otherwise we suggest you matcvh your hose to your outlet and use the M4 allowing maximum flow rates.

How to choose the right sullage hose for you

"Which one should I get?" is a question we are often asked. Firstly, you do not need to select a hose based on the outlet on your van. There is no standard sullage outlet size for Caravans/RVs in Australia. However this is no cause for concern, as fittings and conversion parts are easy to come-by.
We suggest you select a hose based on your space, length and flow requirements and then acquire fittings accordingly. See the decision quiz that follows for how we help people choose.

Regarding fittings, we stock a few helpful attachments yet if none of those qualify, we suggest you talk to your local pumps/irrigation or caravan parts specialist. They will carry a significantly wider range, you simply need to ensure your outlet finishes on a downward pointing barbed fitting of the same size as the hose you choose (ie 25mm or 32mm).

Important Downward Connection

Please ensure that you connect our hose to a downward outlet, or the hose will fold before water flows into it and fail. If you have a horizontal outlet on your camper, you can add a second ‘drain adaptor’ to your purchase that will act as a downward connection adaptor.

how to connect a flat out sullage hose downward

Don't take it from us, hear from our customers...

When Zoe was at a caravan show in canberra last year she met Rob as he came across our stand. He sang praises of his sullage hose and we asked if he wouldn't mind telling you about it. The result is the video you see here.
Glen is a Flat Out International fan and shares his tips with fellow travellers for an easy grey water collection tank. He uses the same fitting (that he made himself) to easily connect his flat sullage hose at the correct angle.

Flat Out Sullage Hose Setup and Usage:

 

1. Remove outer plug, connect to van and walk away to unspool.

2. Run your hose to the drain in flowing curves rather than making tight corner bends, this will assist flow.

3. Your hose is cut into 2 lengths, use the shortest length required to meet the drain and use the joiner provided when required to extend the reach.

9m Sullage Hose on Narrow/Original Multi-Reel M3/M3NK/M4K

4. At the drain, connect the drain adaptor and hook in drain to direct flow downward and reduce chances of displacing the outlet.


To Pack Away:

1. Run clean water through camper sink to flush hose.

2. Detach from camper and insert one end plug

3.Slide this end into the centre of the reel after lining up the opening of the reel with the rubber guides

4.Wind the first length of hose walking along as you go, any excess water in the hose will be forced out naturally

5. At the junction, remove the joiner and slide about 1cm of the second hose inside the end of the hose you have already wound on

6. Carefully do your next wind to ensure it does not lose grip

7. Keep winding until you reach the end

8. Remove drain adaptor and place the second end cap on protruding end of hose
