Question Water fill hose

I'm going to be 65 in Sept.You know when we where kids how the water out of the garden hose in the summer was just the best.It was as cold and good as it got.I recently heard on the news a test was run on all kinds of garden hoses and wouldn't you know it,a unacceptable level of lead was found.Huh??.Don't know if the white RV hoses are any different.Comments??.

I drank out of a hose quite often and I'm kind of alright. LOL!
White hoses are safe for drinking and will hold up under pressure.

At our age we should be aware of one thing. We have survived more bad stuff in our food, water and air than the experts say we could have. In the past, we were in danger at "parts per thousands", along came better instruments and we were in danger at "parts per million", even better instruments came along and they warned us of grave danger at " parts per billion", now the newspapers are even warning us of impending death at "parts per trillion". I say "don't worry, be happy, live longer".

You can run water through the hose before you hook up if you like, but the other chance is that the campground water has as much lead as anything else.

Does white hose make a difference? It stays cool longer in the sun.
Unless it is marked as a "Safe for Potable Water use" it is probably no different.

At our age, I think I can find better things to worry about.
