Any hose could be a problem. If the water sits in the conveyance it leaches contaminates. The solution is to run the water for a few minutes to flush before using the water. The same rule for the water from a faucet. I well remember the "rubber" taste from 1950's hoses.

Clean-out-hatch for fresh water tank

Since I currently have my fresh water tank out because I did some floor replacement, I decided to go with Smokelessjoe's method of retrofitting the water tank for optimum cleaning by installing 2 clean out hatches. However, as long as you can get to the tank easily, you don't have to remove the water tank to do this. Here's a link to his water tank "recipe." I use a wet shop-vac to get out anything that doesn't drain when I'm cleaning.

Here is where I bought the marine clean out hatches:
