Supply water choice

Questions about interior, exterior, plumbing, navigation, electrical etc.
Greetings all,
My Gfriend has gotten in the habit of turning on water faucets when we arrive after several days of not being aboard. The purpose, she has repeatedly pointed out, was to clear out the red tinted water that comes out initially.
I realize now I should have taken this more seriously. I picked up a new "drinking water safe" 50' hose from WM and installed it. Same product as the last one. I couldn't believe the dark red water still left in this hose that came out. What is going on

Here?????

Thanks,

I would run some of the dock water into a white plastic bucket without using the hose and see if it is your water source. If that looks ok, attach your hose and fill the bucket. Now you know if it is the water or the hose or neither. Good luck.
It is possibly the brand of the hose. Maybe you should test the hose by themselves. Cut open the old ones and see what is on the inside of them.

Goodluck!
