Hmmm...looks interesting. I have the 50ft roll up collapsable hose but this one looks even easier if it really works!

I'd be afraid it was a snake and chop it to pieces!

Seriously, what would the water taste like? A regular garden hose? Would it hold up the pressure while hooked up to your rig?

Order one Herk and then give us your review of it!

They don't state that it is safe for drinking water. It very likely might not be.

I take it you never drank out of a regular old rubber garden hose when you were a kid?

No one can answer that question because those that drank from a garden hose are all dead. OUR gov't has declared they are not safe for drinking, only for watering. Thank you polititians for saving me from myself!

Not so fast there dude, where do you think all these senior citizens (including myself & DW) drank from when we were kids. We also survived lead based paint, riding bikes without headgear, played in parks without rubber mats, went to schools that had asbestos insulation, carried our lunch to school in used paper bags and rode in cars with suicide door without seatbelts, airbags. Don't know how so many of us survived without "Big Brother" watching over us. We even shared bottles of pop, played baseball and football with no protective gear whatsoever.
Oh, by the way, some of us also got our rearends warmed by switches, belts and calloused hands for misbehaving.

I drank from many a garden hose. Yes it tasted terrible, but when you thought you were about to die from heat stroke, it was so good!

We also climbed trees and went barefooted all summer!

It only tasted bad if you didn't let it run long enough. My mom even cooked on a kerosene open flame stove IN THE HOUSE! Boy, we are lucky we survived to even start school.

OH THE GOOD OLD DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't forget we play outside ALL day and came home when the street light came on or when ALL the Mom's where calling "Dinner". The neighbors corrected us when they was us do something wrong and then our own parents really laid into us.......
Yet we survived, to raise the next generation
