Default Tiny particles going to my mouth from two brand new KM hoses

So I don't use washable hoses, much prefer to keep a hose for each flavour/flavour group. I don't like the fact that my Nammor tends to be petty rigid, even after multiple uses it still has got the bends from when it was in a packet. (compared to KM non-washables which are very 'free flowing'). I also dislike the taste in my Nammor, everyone has been telling me that the artificial taste goes eventually, but still after many sessions it is there. Anyway, enough of that, let's get to the point.

Recently I purchased these two hoses:
http://www.myshisha.co.uk/apps/webst...s/show/3874526
http://www.myshisha.co.uk/apps/webst...s/show/2569461

I really like both, especially the crystal one is really neat. The problem is that sometimes I get tiny specks go in my mouth when I smoke, they are the colour of wood and are absolutely tiny, almost look like a tiny 1mm wood splinter. This mostly happens if I shake the hoses up a lot and take first few pulls, after that it's no problem, so in reality this only happens at the beginning of the session. These hoses are brand new and of course I never washed them.

Any ideas what this might be? I'm thinking it's just something left over from the manufacturing process perhaps, Egypt being a sandy environment and all?

Wild guess. Non-washables have rubber inside. As this ages through humidity, temperature, etc, it starts to flake.

Possible you got old, weather worn hoses?

Have you tried blowing them out? It doesn't sound like rust, but any unidentified particulate matter that could end up in your lungs is less than optimal.

Is it salty? Sometimes evaporated moisture can leave some crystallizations in hoses that have traveled or sat.

I think this will remain a mystery. It's not salty, but then again there isn't enough of it to taste it properly. I tried blowing it out, and some of it came out, I beat up the hoses against a wall to disclodge all I could and blew it out, I think most of it it out. Smoking some AF cherry at the moment and I'm not getting anything in my mouth. I'll see as the days go on if it comes back.

Take a grommet and attach one to a gas station tire air pump to blow it out maybe?

I had this issue with only one non-washable but my other ones were okay.

If you do decide to try a non-washable, never had an issue with my Social Smoke Pro Lounge tasting chemically but just in case, I rinse them through with some diluted vinegar and rinse them. Then again, they are a bit rigid but running really hot water through the hose and grabbing it afterwards, and turning the hose gently like you're wringing out a towel fixed this.

You can ghost washable hoses too, IMO washable hoses are the best in every single situation, you cant go wrong with them.

that air isnt dry at all...you're likely to blow oil all through your hose. fine for tires, gross for hoses. I've become very disgusted by compressed air recently.
