No I don't think you can rely on the chlorine in the water. That's a pretty high bacteria load when these idiots do stuff like that on the spigots.

As the late George Carlin once said: Just think how stupid the average persons is, then realize that half of people are even stupider......

I say that the hand you shake, the hug you make, the doorknob you touch, the grocery cart you push, (shall I go on?) may have essense of yuck stuff.
But we ate dirt from the garden and drank from the garden hose, yadda-yadda....and the more we got jizzed, the less allergies we had and the fewer infections we suffered.
Just sayin.....

That said, the chlorine in the water does a good job (if it's not a well), and so does the UV in sunlight (on the spigot).
Honestly, I'd be much more concerned about what I pick up from a doorknob at Crackerbarrel.
HAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't spoil Cracker Barrel for us too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it hasn't killed him yet. It probably hasn't even hurt mim.

Yikes.... ...Cousin Eddy sure gets around I'm not a germaphobe, but that's a pretty disgusting thing to do.

Frankly, IMHO I don't get the big deal about wasting time and getting splashed by "washing" the inside of the sewer hose. Dishwashing gloves on...I dump the black tank followed by a full tank of grey water which should at least blast out any residual solids. Then I cap one end of the Rhino hose and then collapse the hose and cap the other end. Done... put it away until the next time. Stays very clean on the outside and clean enough on the inside and that's all that really matters.

cheers,
Joopy

I'm also convinced. Now let me get this straight. You are talking about sanitizing the sewer hose so you can use the water hose to flush it ....right?
Pete, I was talking about spraying the spigot (threads AND inside) before attaching the freshwater hose in case some idiot contaminated it before I got there.

I suspect that those people that rinse the sewer hose at the fresh water tap, and use the same hose to wash out their sewer hose and poop tank and then use it to fill then their fresh water, will all say we have nothing to worry about, germs are no big deal, and you should just quit worrying about it! Which is why they do the things they do.

I read one of the worst places for germs, fecal matter and you can guess all the other yucky stuff to be found is in movie theaters.😱😱 yet almost every week the dw and I make our trex to the movies and buy their popcorn. I always wash my hands before going to sit down and never grab the arm rests.

If you go too far on "germ-free" you do not build enough immunity; a compromised immune system is why some kids (not mine) are sick more than well after they start school.

Your cell phone has more bacteria than a bathroom door handle or even toilet seat and we're worried about a spigot?

Forget the small things in life...........what I am starting to really worry everyday Joe, is about..........Getting older
Now that is something to concern oneself with, and worry about
