A: The washer package says nothing about additives that dissolve in water. You can minimize the extraction by limiting the temperature of the coupling and water when flushing the hose to discard the heated water and using light colored hose to reduce solar energy absorption. OR call the manufacturer and inquire about this issue. The manufacturer of the flexible polymer of which the washer is fabricated may have a listing of the properties of the polymer. (The same thing is true of the hose (especially if the outer jacket is black.)
A: Thank you for your interest in Danco products and for your inquiry. Our products are designed and only been tested for use in washing machine or garden hoses.We can not guarantee anything else outside of the purpose of our product. You may want to contact the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, also known as OEHHA.
A: Thank you for your interest in Danco products and for your inquiry. The size of the hose this washer works with needs to be 5/8 inches. The actual dimensions of the actual washer is as follows: O.D. is a 1 inches, the inside diameter is 3/4" and the thickness is 1/8".
A: No. It comes with the following warning on the back of the package: "Warning: This product can expose you to chemicals including 1.3-Butadiene, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov". My father bought these for our garden hose, but I am going to have to return them because I don't want our food garden to be potentially harmed by the rubber in these washers. What I don't know is why manufacturers still insist on making washers that have these harmful chemicals in them.
A: I would think so.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. These washers are intended for non-potable water applications.
A: Being that these washers are also used in connections for clothes washers and other appliances, you may find them in the plumbing aisles, but generally they are for garden hose use which would be much easier to find in the Garden section of the store. Generally located with all the hose accessories and repair products and very close to where the bulk of the Garden Hoses are kept. When in doubt just ask one of our associates for help.
A: In my local store these are located with the hose connections in the garden section. Unfortunately they are in a very small package and are therefore easy to miss among the various connectors and fittings. I found mine right next to this easily identifiable Y connector (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Melnor-2-76-in-Metal-Y-Connector-9000/100178887)
A: Typically next to the garden section in garden hose and attachments.
A: Two years later and HD still hasn't answered. This proves that nobody monitors questions on the website for correct info. Sad.
A: Garden Department (With the Garden Hoses, Hose repair parts and accessories).
