Zero G RV Marine Grade Hose

I was looking for thoughts and comments on this type of hose. What we have now isa bear to roll up. The blue beast from hell. It is a great hose if you can get it wrapped up. Thanks in advance.

I picked up a cheapo 50 ft. expanding hose for filling my tanks because my 50 ft white drinking water grade hose is a pain to roll up. If I am going to stay connected to water while camping I use the solid hose.

There have been several posts about using a bucket to keep the water hose neat and several ways to roll it up. You might look a them via the search function.

I went to Amazon and saw a 28% 1 star ratings, lots of "it leaked first time I used it."

Buy 2 25' and cut one in 1/2. Had many CG that was all we needed.

I bought the Zero G hose at CW last year because I was tired of fighting the white hose and storing it. I also bought a hose bag that I put it in. I got a black collapsing hose at Home Depot for the black tank flush and that also goes in a separate hose bag. I can now store both my drinking water hose and black tank flush hose and take up minimal space. Both bags will fit in the water utility area of the FW basement.

Been a pleased Zero G user for almost two years now. What a pleasure it is not to wrestle an old-school vinyl hose anymore. Any concerns about bursting have not materialized in our use of it. I applied to anti-seize to the aluminum coupling threads as a precaution (I inserted brass quick disconnects in both ends of the Zero G, so they're never unscrewed).

I’ve used a Zero G for a year now which is longer than any of my white hoses lasted. I have two 25’ hoses and generally only use one most of the time. I would buy them again - haven’t seen anything better. I also thought the pice was reasonable for a good hose.

I use these: I have two (25') self coiling hoses. Generally only need one. No kinks and easy storage.

The Zero G hose is not BPA free if that concerns you.

Used 2 of the 25' Zero G all of last season, they are still good for this season. I won't go back to a white hose. Mine aren't even the marine grade, bought the standard hose at Lowe's. Says on the package that is drinking water safe. So far me, the wife and kids seem unaffected. Honestly, we don't drink water from the tap at the campground anyway, mostly drink bottled. I also bought a lowes 5 gallon bucket at the same time, store all of my water stuff including hoses in that.
