Question Fresh water hose

I have been using the blue Camco 35’ water hose for 2-3 years now. It seems like it is stiffing up a little making it harder to coil. I was think of trying the Zero G hose, https://www.amazon.com/4001-50-Light.../dp/B014M9PEXC or the Flexzilla hose, https://www.amazon.com/Flexzilla-Gar...03TFE7ZM/?th=1.
I have a 3’ flexzilla hose that goes from the water softener to the rig. But having 50’ of it is a different animal.
Just wondering if anyone has experience with either of these and your thoughts on it.
Thanks

Folks that have been using their drinking water version; do seem to like it a lot!
They store so easily...

I’ve had 3 of the zero g hoses for about 2 years now, I really like them, not as messy and hard to roll up as traditional hoses.

What hose Bob? I asked about two different hoses that look interesting.

Why have you had 3 of them? Do they keep failing?

We’ve been using the ZeroG RV version (blue) for about a year. It coils easier and weighs less. I highly recommend it. Also using the gray ZeroG at home for about a year. Also with good results.

When you are at Home Depot do not forget to pick up some blinker fluid also.

HD not a good place for blinker fluid--almost no auto department. Need to check AutoZone or O'Reillys.

I figured after almost 900 posts. I could add 1 humor.
What aisle is the Blinker fluid in??
I hope you have a relaxing Summer!

It's in the one where they keep the cross-drilled brake lines...

But the BEST place to find this stuff is here:

IMHO this is the best hose out there. It is flexible in cold weather and most likely will outlive me. rvwaterfilterstore.com Custom lengths with brass or SS HD ends.

Maybe, I have not tried all of them so I am not in a position to comment. Do you have more specific information (i.e. a manufacturer and part number)?

Go to the website i showed for info on the hose. It's 1/2" ID. Some will say that's too small. My experience says it does not make a bit of difference.

Full time use of nearly 4 years with no signs of wear.

Finally found hoses on the site. Not intuitive on the phone. Is this the custom made hoses? I’ve been looking for a place to get custom lengths made.

If you need a custom length: give it to me!
I haven't met a hose yet that I couldn't bugger-up somehow. I'd always have to shorten them, and add a new end...

To save the frustration.. Stop by Harbor Freight..They seem to carry Pre-Bugger'd hoses...
