On a 'fully serviced' pitch there is no standard. Connecting water & waste pipes can be quite a challenge sometimes.
The water supply is usually easy. All you're ever likely to need
is a hose pipe. Or perhaps a longer hose pipe!
What about the waste? Carrying a pile of pipes & plumbing
fittings is one solution, and it can be quite expensive, we didn't
Aquawaste comes in two flavours: Aquawaste Junior &
With both systems, waste water from your van goes into the WWRV
(Waste Water Receiving Vessel) - also known as a bucket!
Aquawaste Junior is very simple. A bucket with a pipe
attached! You could easily make your own but it might
actually cost you more than buying from us! You might
also ruin several buckets...
One continuous pipe is used. No 'trombone' pipes propped up on
bricks or slings attached to awning rails etc etc.
The bucket has a connector which is attached to a flexible
delivery hose. The hose feeds to the drain. If your outlets are
close together you can drain directly into the bucket.
At the end of your trip you can coil up the pipe & put it in
the bucket, ready for next time. The hose is much more
flexible than the 'usual' stuff. See the photo above.
You don't need half a plumbers shop dripping drain water in your front locker on your way home!
You don't need to spend ages setting it up!
OK - it's a bucket & a pipe. You were expecting more?
You're kidding? The water goes in the bucket, then to the drain!
On a faintly serious note, the bucket acts as a reservoir.
The drainage pipe is 1" internal diameter. This is larger than the waste pipes we've seen on any caravan so shouldn't get blocked.
On a decent (ie level) seviced pitch, the fall to the drainage point is likely to be small, and drainage can be slow. The bucket helps with this, you don't get water backing up.
Aquawaste Junior costs £13.99 + £3.99 delivery (UK mainland
