I use the blue inline filter to keep CG system crud out of my system. We change CGs often and never drink their water.

The Zero G hoses are not collaspable hoses like the things you see on TV. These hoses are much better than those type hoses. They don't have that memory that standard hoses have so you can just wad them throw into a tote or bucket and it will just stay there. Where as the standard hose come alive like a snake and tries to escape it confines.

I'll second the recommendation on the Zero-G hoses. I bought one off the shelf at WalMart not knowing anything about it except they said drinking water safe. Just bought another one for the Bigfoot. I'll convert all the house hoses to Zero-G as they wear out. More choices are available on line WalMart and probably Amazon. I bought the 50ft version as that was all WalMart had on the shelf.

I liked the idea so I looked them up on Amazon(.ca) and the reviews were less than spectacular. Seems like a lot of them are developing leaks after a couple months of use.
I think I'll hold off for now.

They do have a 5 year warranty that APEX will honor as long as you keep the receipt. They are better then my last two CAMCO hoses that if cool (below 60*F) wont roll up or the crappy Chinese made aluminum fittings break off. I fixed one with $12/set brass fittings and scrapped the other, replacing it with a Zero-G

Water hose

I am using a hose that I bought in 1972. Lifetime warranty. Never needed it. Do not know if it is drinking water safe or not Will not kink flexible in cold weather. Bought a hose hanger from Home Depot and mounted it on the front wall of basement

We use a plastic tub, about 22" x 16" x 12" tall. It holds 100' of fresh water hose (which we've needed in a COE and a NFS campground), 25' hose to flush black tank, and a small bucket in the middle that holds the black tank treatment bottle and a spray nozzle.

I just coil them up connect the 2 ends together to keep bugs from crawling in and to keep water from dripping out then then throw them in the basement
