Re: hose problem
But what goes unknown is the amount of tobacco particulates and reactive buildup that accumulate inside that hose as it is used. Condensation from smoking creates moist surfaces on the interior of the hose. Then as you're smoking, the moist interior rusts the hose coil and collects particles that eventually dry up. When the hose is bent when put away and taken out and moved around while smoking, these tiny particulates become loose later to be inhaled by the smoker. These particulates are no doubt unhealthy, but can also cause displeasing odors to linger inside the hose, discomfort to the smoker and throat irritation.
