Zero G water hose

Anyone out there use collapsible water hose for filling fresh water tanks or pressurizing their water system? Vinyl hose is so hard to handle and coil up. Also takes up a lot of storage space. Seems like good alternative to me, if it will hold up. Thanks.

Been using 2 of them for about 2 years, one for fresh (we bring bottled water for drinking/cooking), and one for black tank flush.
Both have held up well, take up little space, and are easy to roll up and store. Using them about 4 months a year. Won't ever go back to vinyl/rubber hoses.

I have used these for a few years now both at home and to flush our black tank and every single one has sprung a leak or worse, had the hose come loose from the fitting. They are great as space savers but at least for us, not all that durable/reliable.

So using one for our city water supply is out of the question.

We've had 3 or 4 at the S&B and all have sprung leaks.

Really like the concept but they need to be more reliable.

I would like to use for black tanks flush. I have a powered built in hose real, so no space saving benefit to using with the fresh water.

Thinking about trying the one I see Richard Karn advertising on TV, if Al likes it it may be worth trying.

Not sure some posters actually have the Zero-G product by Teknor. Zero-G is made in USA. and comes with two year wty. This is not a "pocket hose." It does not shrink in length. When not under pressure it handles like a wet noodle. I am very happy with ours.

I think the Zero G hose is the best thing out there for RV'ers!

The ones I have are the Zero G, and they have been used for 2 years in all kinds or conditions. Connected and disconnected last year on a 13 week, 13,000 mile trip to Alaska, numerous weekends, 5 weeks this year to G. Canyon and areas around. Heat, cold, freezing temps, still good as new after hundreds of connects/disconnects.

We fulltime and have been using Zero G hose going on three years. The first one we had sprung a leak. Camping World replaced it no charge. Never had a problem since. I carry two 25’ Hoses and would not go back to the white RV hoses. The Zero G hose is so much easier to handle especially in cool weather.

can`t be

I think some are confused on the brand. I had a few of the other kind and they all failed but the Zero_G brand is much sturdier, I have 4 hoses and have severed me well. They are more expensive but you know the old saying.
