When You're Filling The Aqua Roll...

What do you do with your water pump/suction hose?

 

We're only on our third caravan trip and I find it interesting seeing what people do with their pump/hose, some disconnect them, some leave them on the floor, some have a little pocket that goes in the bottom awning rail which they drop the pump in.

 

I just tie a quick knot in mine, keeps it off the van and the floor and stops any dirt getting on it.

 

Simple, quick and free!

All the pumps we have ever had had a lower groove that the hose went into.

Keeps the whole pump and hose off the ground.

That will be the lip you turn the hose in on itself into lol you I was looking for a particular word. The Groove :)

out of one into the other?

Bit drastic for want of looping it lol

Doh is me, sorry never thought of that, but then I carry a 30m hose to fill mine up haha

This is not a dress rehearsal.

I've an internal pump so I've no pump to disconnect but I put the filler pipe into a 2 gallon plastic jerrycan which I use as a "reserve water supply" (always keep it topped up with the "left over/remaining" water from the A/roll to make sure that the OH always has water when I'm filling the A/roll :)

Its not so easy when you have pushed a piece of 32mm white plastic plumbing pipe over the outside of the Whale pipe to make sure the filter doesn't float and start sucking in air!

Id certainly like more to see you tie it in a knot then like the OP suggests. Gotta flex some muscle then to do that!

Indeed :)

 

When one is empty I swap the pickup into the other one for continuous water. At my convenience I fill the empty roll which already has nothing in it.

Drastic?

The Truma Ultraflow water pump assembly has a blue hook on the pistol grip connector on which to clip the power cable when the pump is removed. The clip can be seen on this photograph in its stowed position. It is diametrically opposite the pistol grip "trigger" and is similar in design.

 

To use the clip, the pump is removed from the water container and is curved to make a circle with the hose, the clip is raised from stowed position and the power cable is hooked onto the raised clip.

 

Before I had this type of pump assembly I would remove the whole assembly and place it in a clean washing up bowl whilst the water container was being re-filled.

The whale pump has a slot in the housing to hold the tube.

 

 

 

You live and learn. I never knew that. Never had a problem where to put the pipe BUT the solution was staring me in the face.

I have 2 water containers so rarely leave the pump unsupported but have a builder's stainless steel cavity wall tie that hooks into the nearby water heater outlet which holds the pump off the ground.
