I mean, I don’t think a camp should be giving that water to people’s kids, but if it were really that dangerous, I’d probably be dead. When I was a kid we’d drink out of the hose all the time. In terms of using an out door spigot to make rodi, I imagine most people are hooking their rodi unit straight to the tap, or using dedicated hoses, regardless, it’s going through the filter, so it doesn’t really matter.A number of years ago my young daughter was attending a Summer Camp and she told me during lunch the Counselors would fill up all the kids drinking glasses out of a hose.
I did research and about fell out of my chair.
Ever wonder why water out of a hose tastes "funny "?
You're drinking 1) mold and mildew that grows inside a hose, 2) other various forms of bacteria growing in a dark place inside the hose, 3) particulates of broken down pieces of hose sweltering in the blazing sunny.
All very bad for your health
I immediately told the Camp Director who about lost her mind bc they were in major violation of State Health Board regulations.
They could have be shut down immediately if inspected and fined a hefty fine in the 10s of thousands of dollars.
They changed the drinking water source immediately the next day.
Soooooooo. Do you really want the residue crap coming out of a hose in your tank?
