Editor's Notes

April 10, 2020:

As you select the right hose that is safe for drinking water, whether it is for you backyard spigot or for your RV, there are various factors to keep in mind. Hoses are constructed from various types of materials, so you want to choose one that is made from materials that comply with different governmental standards. These standards ensure that the hose is free from lead, among other things,so that you and your family will be protected. The Teknor Apex NeverKink is one model that is made with FDA sanctioned materials. The Camco 22783 is another option that is NSF-certified to be safe for drinking water.
