Water hoses for filling and flushing?

Any recommendations for water hoses?
I've heard that Pocket Hose makes a potable collapsible hose now. Silly question, but do most of you have 2 hoses, one for drinking water and one for flushing tanks?

Thanks, Steve & Deb

Yes I have a separate hose for clean water and one for flushing. There probably is not any possibility for cross contamination, but I like keeping it separate. I use the white drinking water hose from Camco and I have a heated drinking water hose. For the flush I have a grey one, don't remember the brand.

Definitely 2 different hoses! I use the white drinking water safe hose for city water and a cheap hose I got for free for buying fertilizer from home depot for black tank flush. I like free!!

Yup! Two different hoses, have several white fresh water hoses and a separate gray hose for dumping grey tank into the woods if not at a dump station (and allowed to do so) and use it for flushing black tank. Also keep a spray bottle of water/Clorox mix to spritz facets/fittings before use...

Noticed these are only 3/8" ID. A lot of hoses are 5/8" ID. Don't know how much difference the 1/4" makes but would think it would have some impact on water volume available at the RV.
