Thank you for your question. We are not able to recommend a specific product, but I did a web search for ‘filter for arsenic hose’ and found this (but I am certain there are others): http://www.ecoonespa.com/spa-products/hosefilter/ You might be interested in this Extension article that discusses the actual risk of arsenic even entering plants, let alone posing a hazard to humans: https://www.unce.unr.edu/publications/files/ho/2009/fs0909.pdf Good luck!
