Setting up your Flat Out Drink Water Hose

Get the best out of your Flat Out drink water hose by having it set up correctly.

Connection to your caravan, camper or motorhome

Our hoses work best with a downward connection, otherwise you may experience flow restriction. If you have a horizontal or upward BSP inlet, we advise additional purchase of an elbow adaptor.
