Don't know....but growing up, when messing about in the garden I might have drunk from the hose on numerous occasions doesn't seem to have done me any harm

The hose is not so much the issue. The vessel is a great breeding ground for bacteria

I got the 15.4 litre & no I just run hose pipe through it for the final rinse,,I'm really impressed with it as I have black wheel on my RRS & also on my pickup & I washed the wheels Sunday afternoon & rinsed the with the water through the Di vessel & Monday morning their was no water marks on them at all.
DLGWRX02 I'll give it a shake next time I use it & see what the metre reads then

Have you tested the water before it enters the vessel, if somwhat was your reading. Just be interesting to compare.

Another good tip get some containers and keep so filtered water in, works wonders for washer bottles, and also if you need to dilute and mix up some solutions.

I used mine for the first time at weekend after making the plunge and buying one. To say that I am impressed with the results is an understatement. I thought that I would see how the car dried naturally as I usually get loads of water spots if I don't beat the sun in the race to dry it off. The car dried perfect looking like it had just been polished without a mark on it.
