Fresh water hose

Ok here is my issue.

My white drinking water hose needs to be replaced. I don't really want to by another one as coiling it back up is a pain.

So my question is the hoses that are coiled can they be used for fresh water as we don't drink from the tap. Only used for washing dishes and showers.

Thanks.

Those coiled hoses have a nasty habit of bursting under constant pressure. I was thinking about getting one, and was talking to a guy camped next to us a few weeks ago who uses them. He said it is so easy to store he just drops it in his container and it coils itself. I asked about the rumors of them bursting and he said he hadn't heard that but he had only had this one for a few trips. As fate would have it we woke up the next morning and there was water everywhere. His hose had burst and was spraying out into his campsite, and ours for who know how long as it happened sometime during the night/early morning. I think I will stick with my white hose, it may be bit of work to coil it up to put away, but I highly doubt they will burst like that. You can read about them in some of the product reviews and see what I am talking about.

Going to place a order for a couple different lengths of these water hoses, highly rated by folks that have bought them

You are right Mike, I did not understand that is what he wanted to use, I use them, and had a couple burst years back, new ones seem to be lasting...........

Ok thanks for the info.

I have one for the king flush and yes it coils up very nice. Which is why I thought would be great for fresh water also.

Just a thought on the bursting issue I use a water regulator set to max 60 psi I wonder if that would be a help or not.

My house is on a water well, max pressure is 62# cut out........had the older ones that came out a couple of years back blow out........
I still carry a new model one 75' long in the Coach, I never leave pressure on it, drain it down a bit after using it..........gun shy

I have had 3 different coil hoses and they were all junk. Never lasted. I would not put them on a line that would be pressurized all the time. If the hose were to break, where you attach it to your water intake, you'll have a real nice flood in the basement.

Consider this - http://www.menards.com/main/outdoors...13899146408506

Ditto on the collapsing hoses bursting if left under water pressure. Had it happen to me too. So I switched to the above.

It's a 50 foot hose on a reel - works at any length - is easy to store - I use it and have had no issues with it imparting any taste or odor to the water.

If you purchase one of those portable hand hose reels, coiling the hose back up without crimping it is very easy. It also acts as a good storage device. I think I got mine at Walmart....very cheap.

the main problem with one of these flat hoses is that it has to be completely un-reeled before water will flow. I've also "heard" that they are susceptible to bursting under pressure too.

I bought one of these for the boat and it kinks and gets tangled if you actually try to use it. Might work as a water hose if it never gets stretched.
