if you're gonna smoke hookah, you need to have a clean pipe! it tastes like SHIT if i don't clean it. use fresh water every time, bacteria and even mold will grow inside of there and then you'll really be sorry.
if you take care of your pipe (and it's not a crappy chinese), it will last you for years and years.
+1 i was really suprised as well, i do the same as you but use baking soda and lemon juice instead
