It says Drinking water/RV safe on package. I have had mine for two years and it's great. No more struggling with plastic hose in the winter.
Well, I know nothing about these hoses, but in the description on Amazon (the link provided), it says, "Not recommended to be under constant pressure." Isn't that a bit worrisome?

We will find out, as we are using a blue one here at our camp host location until 7/15. If it fails before we leave, we'll let you know!

FYI, I just visited the Teknor Apex website for Zero-G, and did not find such a warning there. Did I miss it? https://www.apexhose.com/zero-g-rv-marine-hose

A year and a half with no problems. Mine is only hooked up when camping, I donít do indefinite stays anywhere so itís not under constant pressure in that sense.

Our fancy Flexzilla hose was covered in black mold.
So I cut it to see if the inside had mold too.
Lo and behold the inside looked beautiful. White as snow.
But It went in the trash as it was cut in two.
(does this rhyme?)

We did not want that moldy thing anywhere in the trailer.
