The fact that they stopped making gas and paint with lead in it but still make garden hoses with lead in them seems a bit far fetched to me. It just doesn't ring true.

I'd still get an rv hose only because I hate the smell of garden hoses.

Hey guys... I think it is fine if you flush the water out of the hose first. Isn't lead used extensively in PVC? What about all those folks using PVC tubing?

Comming from a family of hunters, I have eaten my share of birds and animals shot with lead and nothing has affected me, affected me affected me....

my house was built a year ago with pvc from meter to house. then pex. pvc definately adds an odd flavor. doesn't come through in the beer luckily.

Resurrection of thread....

I'd still recommend you flush the hose with a few gallons of water before you start using it. Grab a sample directly out of the faucet, then one from the hose. Compare the flavor. If they are the same, go ahead and use it. If you have a portable carbon filter housing, putting it AFTER the hose would be a good idea.

Where do you get an RV hose? Or is the answer "an RV supply store"? I don't think I've seen one in Lowes or Home Depot.

Lowes definitely carries them. Look for a white hose. It might be called a marine hose.
