Default Freezing the Hose

I just recently started poping my hoses in the freezer a couple of hours before smoking (about a few weeks ago..?). For about ten minutes, its a cool and refreshing smoke. But, my question is is this safe for hoses, or should I be wary of shortening my hose's lifespan?

It is fine. The freezer will actually pull moisture out of the hose and it might increase its lifespan. Unless you crack it of something while it is frozen.

I've been careful with how I put my hoses in there, and how they are when taking them out. They're pretty sturdy, so I haven't had any problems thus far. Good to know I have nothing to worry about however. Thanks.

I have never done this with the hose but during the time I am setting everything up and packing the bowl I put the stem in the freezer for a few minutes. It gets cold pretty quick and it doesn't make too big of a difference but I will say that it is worth the extra effort.

I love putting the hose and hookah in the freezer. The first 15minutes of smoking is super cool. And from what ive heard, its better for you. Hotter air can irritate your lungs.

No, unless it was like -40*F in there, or if you had lots of moisture in it.
