My water is good, but a filter for the outdoor hose is a great idea. Thanks to the person that suggested that.
There are hoses made specifically for potable (human consumption) water. I believe they are white or bright blue. Drinking water for horses does not fall into the same category. You can use a garden hose for horse drinking water.
The same is true with pvc pipes. If I remember correctly, cpvc pipe is for drinking or potable water. Regular pvc is for other water like your washing machine or toilet or waste water.
The reason is that some hoses or pipes are made with lead, and that can get into the water. Not safe for drinking. However, taking a drink from the end of a garden hose won't kill you. Posted via Mobile Device
