I recently modified our water system to allow us to hook up to the dock water supply. What a wonderful idea, right?
Everything seemed wonderful as I filled a glass at the sink to take a sip and then passed it to my wife. Wow, that was plastic flavored water at its worst. My wife grimaced and asked “Is it always going to taste like that?”
The offending hose was only three feet long so it should clear up after a day or two, right? Not a chance. We were not willing to live with that taste so I found the RIGHT hose and quickly swapped it out.
If it smells like a garden hose it will taste like a garden hose. Get the right stuff.
Happy water, happy boat, lesson learned.
