So if this is true, how long do you need to flush the hose line so that you are not getting the treated water?

It depends on the size of your system, but this should not take more than a minute. If you want to get an accurate measurement, you can take a PPM meter and take measurements every few seconds. Once the PPM drops and maintains a constant number, you can be sure that it is flushed as good as it can be.
