I know we are supposed to use white hoses. Supposedly, garden hoses have some level of lead. Growing up, though, we never used white hoses. We always used the garden hose.

For that matter, we didn't have water filters or bottled water - just, simple tap water.

What's worse Mike, this was a brand new rubber hose. It has that oily rubber after taste that only new ones have. Totally gross.

True Ali, but think of it this way, every time you take a drink, you can go back in time, remember running around the yard, thirsty, and grabbing the water hose for a drink of water !

Just bustin your chops again ! Just get a drinking water approved hose ! We are thinking of one of the blue ones, that claim low temp. flexability ???

I have three of the white ones Jim lol. And did I use any in my haste? Well, Haste made waste cos I had to empty the FW tank... didn't really go to total waste cos I used the water to water my big trees.
