The Hooligans have three outdoor water bowls that I wash and fill with a garden hose. I've been using the "drinking water safe" hoses for many years but figured I'd post a message in case anyone is interested in reading about the danger of some garden hoses on the market.

I recently purchased a new one from Amazon. It's a 50', 5/8" Apex NeverKink Boat & Camper Reel hose - I paid $28.64 which included shipping. You can get shorter ones, I get the 50' so I can also water some of the plants along the front fence.

Thanks. This is something I would've never given a 2nd thought about, especially for watering my vegetable garden.
