RV Water Hoses
There are many different types of hoses on the market today, but as far as your RV water hose is concerned, you want to get one that is safe to use for drinking water. Hoses that are safe to use for your drinking water supply are usually white, or have something printed on the label that states it is safe to use for drinking water. That means that most (green) garden hoses are out. Never use your fresh water hose for anything else other than filling your fresh water tank. Remember that the water that goes through that hose will be the water you could be drinking or cooking with. The Apex Aquaflex Water Hose has a lead free design and is safe for use with water you will be drinking. Not having the proper hose could lead to health hazards, water contamination and bacteria build up in your hose. When hooking up to any water source turn the water on and let it run through each piece you use before connecting it to the next, this way all the parts are rinsed and are cleaned out a bit. If your RV has been sitting in storage or just has not been used in awhile it is a good idea to flush out and sanitize your fresh water tank and use a small amount of bleach to run through your drinking hose to kill any bacteria that may be clinging to stagnate water trapped inside it.
