That KM hose has a great draw, effortless, but as most people will tell you, the taste/flavor from the open vs restricted/focused draw is less. Cold and iced water gives more clouds, but less taste. Like Ari asked, do you want clouds or flavor? I clean my KMs and others with warm water and dish soap, allowing the vase to warm up if I had used ice, as not to fracture it due to warm/hot water exposure. You do use brushes right? The washable hoses Narbish, Razan and Nammor have removable tips that can be replaced with aftermarket ones with tighter draws.
