Favorite water hose

Our water hose finally has bit the dust. It wasn’t a good one to begin with- kinking etc. What’s your recommendation for a replacement?

I like the Zero-G hoses.

The first one linked is marketed as the RV/Marine specific hose. It has a 1/2" diameter. This one is 5/8", and is also safe for drinking water use.

They store easily, are lightweight and do not kink.

Another vote for zero g - stores well even in cold weather - I will never go back to the old white hoses.

I carry a Zero G 50' hose for those times when I need a longer or extension hose. I have 2 Coil Hoses permanently attached (1 to fresh and one to black flush) which are always there and these are 20' when extended and are typically good enough for about 90% of our locations.

X3 for Zero G.
I carry 2, a 50 ft dark blue one for water supply, and a 25 ft black one for general use.
I use more around the house, being easier to handle in the yard.

Zero G works really well for a hose that just lays on the ground. Stores away really easy.

They are not great hoses for hauling around your yard and watering plants and what not. They kink up way too easy when using in the yard.

Another Zero-G user here.

I have quick fittings on all of my hoses. This makes them easy to connect to the RV and then drain and store connected so they do not get contaminated.

I carry 3 of thees hoses, a 25' and 50' for out potable water and a 25' for general use. I do still have my white hose on board just in case. We are boondocks and a few times I have needed to fill up I had all of my hoses and borrow.

I did find one thing the Zero-G does not work for and that is gravity transfer. I tried to gravity fill my RV tank from the portable bladder on my truck. With the Zero-G being collapsible, if it flowed at all, it was greatly reduced. Pulled out the white hose and was not a problem.

I use a 25 foot one for fresh water and carry a old white sure-to-kink one if I need something longer. Another one for the black rinse stored with my dump hose and fittings.

x100 for Zero G. Even at 40* the standard blue hoses are tough to roll up.
My Zero G has been flawless for 3 years.

I used a Zero-G hose for a year or so and it worked really well but eventually developed pretty significant corrosion on the fittings which made them really difficult to use. We ended up switching to Flexzilla hoses in 10' and 25' sizes which (fingers crossed) have worked well so far. They don't store as easily as Zero-G hoses but don't kink as easily, either, so it's pretty much a wash.

FWIW, we've been using Gorilla Easy Connect brass hose fittings for the past year or so and they have really made a huge difference!

We have been using them for the last 4 years with no problems. Liked them so much I replaced the ones at home with Zero G.
