if its just the hose just get a different hose, the myas are brass with chrome (or nickel not positive) plating so they cant rust, but they can get a bad taste that a good scrub with dawn then a soaking with vinegar gets rid of

From my experience Myas can most definitely rust. I cut the ends off and decided to pull the coil out of the leather to see how bad it was and it was rusted all the way down the length of the hose. I think they just use an iron coil, because it was not brass or chrome.

I've done this with a Mya hose and it worked well +1 for this idea. Cost me $4 for the vinyl tubing and it also improved the draw of the hose. Its also kinda practical because you can see the smoke in the hose but this really isn't as cool as you would think.
