I think he is referring to the "snake" hose. When you add pressure it swells and straightens and when you turn off the water it shrinks back up.

I almost bought it until I did some research and found out:

1) No way to coil the hose with pressure in it. It is all over the campsite when pressurized.

2) Can not keep the hose pressurized for long periods of time without ruining the self collapsing feature.

3) expensive

They may not be meant to use for potable water.
Go for what you know. A white drinking water hose hose that is built to withstand pressure over long periods of time.

Agree with 1 & 2, but not with 3, I found them a lot less expensive than regular hoses. I love the fact that I store my 50' in a 3# coffee can.

I only use it for the black tank flush. It is not for potable water.
