    There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a cool drink of water straight from the garden hose. Beware though; garden hoses can contain lead products. This means that while you are enjoying that refreshing water, you may also be ingesting lead contaminants. While letting the water run through the hose can reduce lead contaminants, a drink safe hose is the best option. A drink safe garden hose from Gator Hyde is lightweight and its industrial strength makes is durable. Kinks in the garden hose can be a big hassle, so another added feature is that the hose is kink resistant. GatorHyde stays environmentally conscious by making the hose from 50% recycled polyurethane.

       A drink safe garden hose not only provides safe water for you, but also for your flowers and vegetables. The lead free water you put on your garden will be safer for the garden’s soil, any run-off water, and other near by plants. Lead free garden water also prevents contaminating your vegetables; this is especially important if you are growing all organic vegetables. Another problem area of non-drink safe garden hoses is contact with lead while working in the garden. You may come into contact with contaminants from the garden hose while digging in the soil. Drink safe hoses make the water safer for you, your plants, and your environment.

       Many non-drink safe hoses even have a warning label on them. (This is a requirement for hoses sold in California.) The warning labels state that there are chemicals that can “cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.” For any hose, whether it be drink safe or not, you should not let water sit in the hose after use. If water is left in the hose, it should not be set out in the sun; this can cause damage to the hose. When you do use your garden hose, let water flush out the hose before using it for pet bowls, for drinking, or in kiddie pools.

       Drink safe hoses are an excellent option for any user. They benefit those who want a cool drink on a hot summer day, the plants that are being watered, and the environment around the garden. GatorHyde hoses provides drink safe hoses that are lightweight, durable, and environmentally friendly. Using a drink safe hose can prevent lead contaminants in your body and in your garden.
