Flexiable PVC??

Im in a tight application of black water tank,
both the toilet and tank is 3 inch. its a very tight fit.
I thought rubber couples and 3 inch Flexiable PVC would work but where to buy?

Ebay has rolls for $300 but I need a few feet.

What about a landscape supply?

Have you got any pics of the connection to be made?
PVC is for electrical use. As in conduit.

Do you mean ABS used in plumbing? Maybe search that instead of PVC.

Something like this?
https://www.savko.com/products/black...nt=32160803533

Its the darn muffler, I need to clear the depth so id need to go higher to clear the muffler making the toilet 5 inches HIGHER then I thought,
Its just a little but it needs to go ABOVE the muffler or below and below it would show. Iv already got the frame drilled and hole cut so now im just needing a "Fix"

Flexiable PVC would allow me to mount it then cut it down then mount the toilet.

How do you guys do it?

I doubt that will work because it isn't that flexible, only on long curves, like in a trench. Also, how hot does a muffler get? That is only rated to 150*F. Can you smell the bus going down the road after an hour of use? I can. No good in the cold either, will break at -10F likely from vibration when driving.
Maybe reroute your exhaust and muffler away from that area and use ABS pipe.

It's common in pool and spa applications. Might try a pool supply type place. 1.5" and 2" is pretty common, might be harder to find 3".

Google to the rescue...

Flexible PVC by the foot

As far it being the right solution, pictures would be nice.

Got 3 inch plastic reinforced pipe from the farm store... comes on a roll like the sauna pipe for the hot tub. Actually bought about 60 feet for the fire truck, had some left over and used it for the toilet and other 3 inch lines to the tanks in the lower compartments.
