Re: Hose Smell
What Thunder said.
These hoses are made of metal rolled into coils and then made air tight by that fabric or plastic or whatever it is that's on the outside of your house.
You can see the coils when you look at the hose.
Make sure you never get it wet because it will rust extremely easy.
And yes, don't smoke it anymore because inhaling rust is not good for you health at all!
I hope you have a shop nearby where you can just go pick one up instead of having to wait for one to come in the mail..
Hope that helped!
