Outside Faucet


Very strange problem with my outside faucet. Whenever i will use my outside water hose it comes out milky white and very foamy and odd smell. Inside faucets are just fine just the outside. Could it be the hose itself? Im stumped on this one. The reason i havent tried without the hose cause the faucet is buried in some bushes and a PIA to get too. Any idea whats going on?

No i havent only because its so difficult to get too. My main thing i was curious if anyone has ever had a hose do this? Also if it matters the hose brand is NeverKink 100 FT.

Do you have a filter, softener, or other manner of water treatment in your home?

Does the water clear up after a minute of running (two minutes if you turn it on low only)?

It's probably the hose inside equivalent of the "new car smell". The water sitting in the hose for days picks up chemicals from the hose, more so if the hose gets hot lying in the sun.

(After awhile, after losing the chemical content, the hose gets brittle.)

replace the hose. chemicals in the water breaking down inside of the hose. From sitting in the hose under pressure

This. Trim the bushes and replace the hose.
