That sounds like a 50 foot hose that has been cut into some pretty handy lengths: with some room to spare!

FYI
If you get brass hose end fittings (in the “brass” section not garden hose section) you can make up lengths that are more suited. And if you have a PEX crimper you can use 3/4” PEX clamps on the 5/8 hose or 1” clamps on 3/4 hose. Much better then hose clamos.

You can also make a permanent 90 with this fitting, cut off the male threads and slide on a 5/8 hose and PEX clamp, it will fit.

Duane,
I keep a 90 degree and 3’ hose always attached. I just push the hose into the water locker when traveling.

I also love the Zero G water hose and have one 25’ and one 50’. I use one of the orange extension cord reels to wind them up on, make storage quick and easy! Just make sure you completely unwind before hooking up, if not you’ll understand why after the first time you don’t!

My white / FW hose is a PITA to coil and store. Takes up half the bay. I see the XeroG on Amazon. Are they drinking water safe?


Anyone have a recent review?


How are they in cold weather?

If you think the white one is a PITA you should try the blue one.

I don't think any of the expando hoses are rated for drinking water.

The easiest to roll are the toll flat hoses.

We've used 50ft zero G hose for a year and a half fulltime now no problems easy to store takes up no space, check label for drinking water safe, ours is gray and I think the blue one is also drinking water safe also .

75ft zero g.
I also have the awful white python of a piece of world class tangling turd, and we use it regularly. I just this moment in 38°,tried to wrestle it into a coil... No luck.

I need a shorter zero g (or store it on an extension cord reel) to make life easier, but a industrial auto recoil reel is sitting here in the mod pile. It was going to be the sewer hose but it's 5/8", and I deem it too small of diameter. 100ft. 95lbs, like you see in oil change bays.

Get a zero g.
Mine was $14 shipped, through amazon warehouse.

After getting the hose to look like that: I'm surprised that you didn't have a line of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in front of it!

The zero g look interesting.
Is the zero g one of those that gets shorter without water pressure or does it remain the same length, just easier to scrunch up and put in a box?

No, it's always the same length. The fittings are solidly made and solidly attached.
That bundle was one of those hand and elbow Wraps like an extension cord, a half twist and an end wrap. Maybe a minute total from laying out on the ground to wrapped with that red wrapper. The wrapper is a piece of copper wire inside of a tiny pool noodle type thing. I thing they're 4 for 6 bucks at hd.

I had bought it in hopes it would work on my macerator. Back pressure in a macerator makes the thermal break, break. So I have I go with a bigger hose. Luckily I found out about back pressure before I hooked up the zerog. I'm running a 3/4" hose on the macerator but I have a one inch ready, just haven't put the quick fittings on it.

Ok - just ordered a black and a blue 50’ zero g from Amazon. Hopefully I can trash the white one from Camco.

Go to the hardware store and buy a plastic reel made for extension cords, they are usually orange. The reel makes rolling up and storing a flat hose super easy, it doesn’t get tangled up, and the reel keeps things neat in the storage compartment. I had a 25 ft “white” water hose and it fit on a reel nicely too.
