Best fixer

I have just pulled the grey waste drain hose off the grey wast tank by catching it on a fallen branch. What I would like to know is! Which glue would be best to glue a new hose into the tank please. I do not want to have to remove the tank if I can help it. This Autocruise Starlet is so low! Has anyone else had the same problem?
Thanks in advance.

Is that still a flexible pipe they used. It was held on with a Jubilee clip when first made.

Have you snapped the hard plastic outlet piece from the tank or just pulled the hose off?

Has the hose been pulled off? What I mean is, is everything else intact and the fittings themselves in good order?

Or has it ruptured the pipe and you're looking for a way of joining two broken pieces of pipe together?

There are literally hundreds of fittings you can use to join two pieces of pipe (depends on your pipe of course)

Whatever you do, don't be tempted to bung a load of sikaflex or silicone around it and hope it will hold. It won't.

If you can post a picture it will give everyone a better idea of the problem and hopefully and permanent solution.

Thank you all for your consideration and advice. I will get to it this weekend hopefully. I don't think the outlet spiggot in anyway damaged so the fix should be fairly simple!

I really cannot understand what the previous owner had done with the drain hose. as when recovered it from the lane, the spiggot end of the hose was a mass of black rubberised gunge. Hence my question as to the best glue to fix it. The fix was simple! A new hose and a jubilee clip and Bobs your Uncle. At the moment the hose is clipped to the bottom of the skirt, I am going to make so that it is tucked up behind it. I will put a picture up when I next go to the van.
Thanks for your replies.
