Default Re: The perfect hose

well im putting the final tuches on the CAD drawings for the ends. I have decided to certianly make this hose modular with replaceable parts so a whole hose replacement would not be required if there out of warrenty or maby you would like to change it up with colors or somthing the first runs will be in clear acrylic because i have some leftover drop-offs from another job to play with. i have decides to also sodium bicabinate bath all items before assemblie to elivate the nasty new hose taste that some new hoses have, i dont think you can get rid of it all but surely should make it better tasting smoke from the start. For now for the first i try for my self im going to try a o-ringed socket fitting to see how it works that way if your o-rings get lose you can just replace them. unlike the razan i have where the grommet became lose fitting and the mouth piece would leak cause its lose grommet. I was thinking that i would make them screw together but my worry would be that people would over tighten them or cross thread them. Then if i try to make a really corse thread so they were hard to coss thread they could crack eaisly from over tightning or leak due to the lack of sealing surface. I think this o-ring idea i have will work grat buy im gonna try to make a few and throw them out there for people to try.
