I noticed the garden hose that I used to fill my pool gives off a terrible smell when dispensing hot water after it has been sitting in the sun. Also, I tasted just a bit of it and could tell the garden hose taste was present. This of course is only when the hot water from the sun is in the hose that has been sitting there. I had never really thought about this, but should I be concerned about filling my pool with this hose? I would like to think that after the water has run through the pool and displaced all of the hot water, that any dangerous chemicals would be removed or at least reduced to a safe level? I am concerned of course because my grandchildren swim in the pool. Does anybody have any insight on this? I'm probably just being paranoid, but would like to know everybody's thoughts on this. Now of course, while swimming I keep thinking I can have a strange taste, but I'm thinking is just from the salt addition.
