    Totally different hose in that ad then the no-freeze hose that was posted about earlier. I actually did buy one of the no-freeze hoses and love it. While I can see it not living up to some of the claims about it for me it was a godsend this winter,

    I had only a 25 foot length so it was easy enough to let it drain completely and once it drained it weighed almost nothing and easily coiled up to fit right in my tack trunk. Even in the coldest temps it stayed soft and flexible. So no fighting with heavy frozen hoses this last winter. I was in heaven.

    I know people with longer lengths that were harder to drain were having problems with it still freezing up and getting blocked.

    I bought one of these too, I haven't used it much at all, did it say somewhere it was safe to drink from? Didn't even consider that.

    I believe that the "no freeze" hose from the other topic/thread was drinking safe; it's the one the OP linked to - the "as seen on TV" one - that apparently isn't.
