I have been using Flexzilla hoses for several years now and never had an issue. After replacing hoses regularly, these are by far the best hoses I have ever had. I also use their air hoses, and same excellent quality applies.

Great hose. Wish HD carried the 100' to price match. I actually prefer the old style grip

I would love one of these fancy hoses... but I found the trick with dealing with cheap hoses. If you can, try to run hot water to the garage or yard.

Before putting away the hose, I always run hot water through it and it softens up the rubber of my crappy $10 hose. I used this hose with no leaks for 4 years. It's kept in a warm garage (ambient heat from the main floor above) throughout the winters.

I guess if you let the water run a bit to get all the standing water out of it before drinking/filling up the RV, you're getting most of the nastiness out of there.
Same never heard of the word "potable" until we first bought a PUP, have upgraded a couple of RV's since.

At home I won't buy/use anything except rubber uses. At the RV, potable hoses are cheap, adverse health effects of using a regular hose aren't immediate. The inconvenience is worse in campgrounds with water hookup, running the line every time before use, to the point people will just end up skipping it.

I camel'd this one for $18:

I made the mistake of filling my RV tank with normal green hose. All i could taste and smell was rubber. I think it has more to do with hose composition than anything else. You can buy 25’ cameo hose off amazon made for drinking water for under $12, so don’t know what scam they would be running. I bought three and just connect if i need more length. Cheaper than buying longer ones and rarely need more than 2 25’ lengths

Says on the HD website that you contact their Customer Service team for price match/beat before buying. It would be easier to do this in store if you're close enough to one though

I already have a 50' Flexzilla, but really what I prefer is a 100' hose. Does anyone know if I can connect two 50' Flexzilla back-to-back to form a 100' hose? Do I need any special connectors to adjoin the two hoses?

On the website it says you can connect any 2 hoses flexzilla hoses to increase the length, so in your case 2 X50' hoses should work to form a 100' hose, I've also read that in a few gardening forums before it would & many times works out cheaper than purchasing their 100' hose which is normally $200+

it's lighter than most heavy duty hoses, easier to clean, and doesn't leak. Honestly, you just have to try it out.

You can connect two 50’ to make one 100’ hose without any special connectors. You will introduce a restriction in the hose as ID is greater than the opening at the connector. I don’t know if this will affect pressure or flow though.

This is the one I have from US HD.
I believe HD canada also carries rubber hoses but not continental brand.

I've had the hose for 5 years (stored in garage) and it's like new. Yes it will kink but the kink will not lead to a crack or an permanent crease/kink like the nylon hoses do (basically all the green coloured hoses you see). You can unkink it and it works normally, no permanent damage to the hose.

HD is a swivel grip and KMS is not. This could potentially be an issue.

As per what I said they are different.

Swivel version vs non-swivel version.

Thank you! I just got this hose from Warehouse Deals for $40. I need a new hose for down at my RV, so I'll bring one of the ones I use at home down and replace it with this nicer Flexilla.
