Hey everyone! My name is Zach. I have been smoking hookah for over a year now but just recently decided to buy my own. If you want to see it, I have a blog on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/zlj1989
I have probably used the hookah about 8 times now. It is pretty good and it's nice not having to travel an hour just to get to the hookah lounge but every time I've smoked it, I seem to get this weird metallic taste in the smoke. I have narrowed it down to the hose because when I smell it I can smell that same smell I get when I smoke it. I have tried washing the hose and the entire hookah with baking soda and lemon juice. The smell has barely gone away. Any suggestions? Should I get a new, fancier hose or just give it a little time because the hookah is still new? Thanks everyone!
