Another question I have gotten mixed answers, has anyone used the expanding hoses for non potable water? I carry a regular hose also, but would rather use the expandable ones to save space and weight. It appears the DAP hose may be the best well made one.
The DAP is best if it is not relied on for a lot of use, the hose section is prone to failure as it is very thin. For a secondary hose for the RV is perfect as it fits right back into its container. For heavy use around home, I would pass.
If you were to get one, be sure to get the professional (or what ever it is called) version with the better ends.
The Ohunu expandable hose has way better reviews though. It can be bought for about $25 shipped on Ebay. It's $35 on Amazon.
Although all of the expanding hoses seem to be hit or miss for quality.
