Time for a bit of plumbing, first off, the waste water.
It’s important for us to have things like the water containers and gas bottle on board, so when we do pull over, we can just hop in the back and put the kettle on with the minimum of fuss, e.g. without having to go outside to connect the gas, fresh water and waste water up.
This means that the fresh water and waste water needs to be connected up all the time, whilst also making sure they don’t splash around when travelling.
As you can see from the picture below, I’ve created a sealed system for the waste water by using off-the-shelf and cheap garden hose connectors.
‘No spills’ waste water container for when we’re on the move…
This is how I did it:
First off, I drilled a hole in the top of the waste water container lid, then screwed in the male part of the hosepipe quick release connector.
Next, I used a hosepipe tap connector, fitted with a short piece of hosepipe and the female part of the quick release connector…
this is then clamped onto the sink downpipe, like so…
the other end is pushed onto the waste water container.
This creates a sealed system, which means no spills. It also makes it very easy to disconnect the pipe from the waste water container when it needs emptying. Cost? Just under a fiver.
The next job is the fresh water system but first I’m going to need to buy some bits and pieces to complete the job. Hopefully, this should be done within the next couple of weeks. See you then. 🙂
When the container got around half full, water started to spit out of the plug hole, so a breather pipe has now been added to allow the air to escape.
Cost so far £635.00
