Filthy campground behavior

We were watching two families packing up to leave. Much to our surprise we saw both of them put their sewer hose right onto the fresh water tap and rinse out their sewer hoses! If you don't already, please make sure that you use some disinfectant on the whole fresh water tap prior to hooking up your fresh water hose because you never know what the people before you did.

I carry a spray bottle with a diluted mix of bleach and water. A strong mix. I always spray before and after we hook and unhook.

X2--- I let it sit on the tap for a few minutes before connecting hose.

First thing I do is spray with bleach solution then flush the tap.. I let it sit for a couple minutes while setting up and spray again. You can never trust that the tap is clean, it is exposed to the elements when not hooked up.
