I like my water right hose. Not cheap but light weight and flexible. It used to be highly recommended on this site.

If the zero g is coiled and connected... will it stay coiled as I turn on the water pressure? or does it flip out?
It stays coiled up.

Looking at the website i agree it does not say BPA free. Also says its not for hot water applications. Which for an RV hooked up to water in the summer might not be a great idea. Water in the hose can get really hot.

Also, a thinner hose may not be a great idea to have under constant pressure.

In cold weather I simply connect my water hose to my outside water connection and run hot water through it until it becomes soft and easy to coil.

That forestry service hose sounds like a nice one. I’m going to get one, even if I just use it to replace my non-drinking water hose.

It says the inner layer is: “High tensile polyurethane NSF liner”.

Does that imply it’s drinking water safe?

Also, am I missing the length in the description somewhere? It looks like it ought to be about 50’ long, but I don’t see the length actually stated anywhere.

I asked them this very question.... Below is the response I got back -

"Good morning Joe,
Great question. The short answer is that the white layflat is not considered a “potable water” hose. That being said, we have had customers completely use a layflat hose for this application and never have any issues. One thing we recommend is using a TPU lined hose instead of the black EPDM rubber lined. The reason being is that potable water hoses use the TPU anyway. Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.

Thanks and have a great day!

I guess I did miss it [emoticon]
Thanks for seeing it for me.

As far as drinking water safety goes, as long as it doesn’t give the water a ”hosey” taste, I’d be ok with using it to fill my fresh tank.

I grew up on a dairy farm. In the summer time we ran many hardware store garden hoses to several different areas watering livestock and chickens. We often drank from those hoses and never gave a thought about what the hose was made of.
Now 50-60 years latter it's hard to find a hose that does not put a bad taste in the water when hooked to an rv. full time.

This is also in the description of the forestry service lay-flat hose:

“ Polyurethane lining made from high tensile TPU compounded”

Sounds like it should be good for drinking water then. I never leave my hoses laying out anyway, I fill the water tank and use the pump.
