Yes, but what color hose did you use?

Many non-potable water hoses contain things like lead. You don't want to use them.

Ah, but it doesn't contain CHOCOLATE, which is also absolutely necessary for good health, long life, and happiness!

I used to have a friend that put beer on his Rice Krispies in the morning and called it Snap, Crackle, and Burp.

Lead ????? I'm sorry but, I doubt it. They don't use Lead for anything anymore.

At one time it may have been in hoses but, those hoses have long ago been thrown away.

Good idea, my granddaughter has some fruit loops in the rig. Fruit Loops awash in Pumpkin Ale.

next time your at your friends house you had better ask how old it is. almost all homes built in the 80s and earlier had lead soldered copper pipes. people still live in them there are hundreds of them in my area. these people have been drinking the water for years and are still healthy. lead consumption from one or two hose fittings is just plane hysteria.

Yes.... LEAD

The white hose is FDA-approved.
