Aerated water after extended hook up to City

I have been hooked up to City water at my home for about 3 weeks now. The water from the taps is coming out super aerated..almost like it is carbonated. Filling a glass it seems like it has alkazeltser in it, but it's air.

Anyone experienced this or know what causes it? Valve manifold is set to City water settings and nothing is out of the ordinary. I am being supplied by a new hose I just purchased, which is an APEX RV/Boat hose (blue with white stripe)[Home Depot]. This is the only thing different than anytime else I have hooked up to City water..

Are the rubber washer in place at the connections?
Seems like you're drawing air in somewhere.

Never had that problem do you have a Pressure Regulator on the City water hookup to much pressure might cause that problem

Did you have antifreeze in the water system? If you don't get it all out it will make the water fizzy.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

Air cannot get into the system. If there were a place for air to get in there would be water leaking out from that place. It would be possible to suck in air from the pump side but this post is referring to the city water connection.

Yes, I have experienced this phenomenon. I can fill my coffee pot with what appears to be white water. In about a minute it will clear up. What causes it is a mystery but there is no air getting in. It seems to be the worst right after de-winterizing. Eventually the situation goes away.

The DW commented that water from the toilet is not "fizzy" like the water from the sinks. Nor is the water from the shower.
So I am going to take off the aerators on the kitchen and bathroom sinks to see if it is happening there. The other option is we are experiencing big pressure differences across the regulator. Our home pressure has hot 100psi, so the regulator is dropping pressure almost in half at times.

It is very strange. We have not winterized and I would hope we have flushed all the antifreeze out of the system from 6 months of usage.

The other thing I am going to replace is my spare RV water hose I bought from Home Depot. It is about to rupture. That may be causing it as well.

But, the problem persists at the sinks. So it may not have anything to do with the hose or regulator.
