When I bought Ours, I was mainly concerned that it had ''Food Grade'' stamped on the label..
If you do get an odd taste to start with you could try running a cup of the 'White Magic' threw the tank...We do find the water tastes 'Sweeter' after doing this (kills any bugs that may be in the tank as well)

Cheers :cheers

Don't forget to also check the fittings you use on the hose. I've seen many people go to the trouble of buying food grade hoses and then use standard plastic garden hose fittings (the pieces that connect the hose to the tap).

Brass fittings should be ok. I think I paid $1 more for brass than plastic.

I noticed at Bunnings today they had "food grade" hose (white with a slightly blue tinge) made by Neta for only $19.95 for 10 m .... I thought that was pretty reasonable ...

Cheers Chippy :D
