What about the heavy duty black rubber hoses? I have been using some made by Goodyear around the house and they don't seem to have any taste issues or plastic smell.

Perry, There are still some nasty chemicals that leach out of non-potable approved hoses into the water.

Maybe the white hoses are on the way out?
I have recently purchased an all blue drinking water hose made by Camco. It's a no/kink design and thicker than the average drinking water hose. Might be more difficult to roll up when cold, we'll see.
I don't know if it's better or not but it sure looks special.

I have a couple of the blue hoses, and they are good, except for your concern....they are a real PITA to roll up when cold. Stiffer than.....well, you know.

There is a side benifit of owning the blue hoses.
It's the upper body strength exercise we'll get rolling those things up.

Ya, it took me a long time to think of that one.

About rolling up hoses, I tried some of the green Flex-AbleHose, like in some of the pop-up adds here, the one that expands with pressure from a small size, and they worked well, no problems, except they gave the water a bad taste. No telling what kind of chemicals they were putting in the water.
