Is 1/2 inch garden hose OK? - pjborg - 12-28-2009

Hi there,

I have 3 lovely granddaughters who like to help "Papa" water the flowers and of course the first thing they want to do is take a drink from the hose. Did you know that it's virtually impossible to find a drinking water safe hose anymore? I finally found a place in Caldwell, Idaho that sells them and now I have to decide what kind to get, because hopefully I'll have them a long time. I've used 3/4 inch - too heavy and cumbersome - and 5/8 inch, and I am considering 1/2 inch. I don't have a sprinkler system yet, so I use the hoses to water my entire yard. Any information you can share about 1/2 inch garden hose is appreciated. Happy New Year!
