This is the one I picked up at Home Depot for $13.00.  I'll give it a taste this weekend and report back.  If this doesn't work out I'll build my own.

Thanks.  I'll be interested to read what you think...

I finally had a chance to test out this hose for off flavors this weekend. I flushed with hot water then cold, poured a tall glass and thought it tasted fine. Assistant agrees so it shall remain in the inventory.

OK.  Thanks for the report.  I'll have to get 2, since I need 50', but at least they're cheap.

Yeah, and the other thing I noticed about this hose was that it was really easy to "work" with. I picked up a $10, 50' made of another material for the discharge line and what a pain in the keister this thing was to coil.  I'll be picking up another one of the RV/boat potable 25' for $12.

I just now caught this thread.

 Tubercle uses a 20 year old hose pipe with no smell or taste. It must be all flushed out by now.

 And "hose pipe" is not a typo. In S.C. the term "garden hose" is used as a Yankee detector. Just like folks that cook on a "barbeque" instead of a grill.

 Lesson in southern dialect over.
