Default Is my hose rusting or is it just dirty as hell?

I cleaned my hookah today and I'm STILL cleaning out my hose. I usually find dark spots on my fingertips after cleaning, which is the residue, but during this cleaning I've been blowing almost pebble-sized chunks of black gunk out of my hose.

potentially your hose has rusted, especially if you had water go through it by washing or bubbling into it.

it could also be "coal particles" that make it from your bowl, into the water, and sometimes bubble up...happens more with cheaper coals

The coals I was using were pretty bad.

if it's not a washable house then it's probably going to be rusted if it isn't already.. What kind of hose is it?

There's nothing worse than a rusty hose! Most hoses aren't washable and it it got water in the inside then it could be rusty and its time to replace.

I have been into hookahs for a few months now. My first two hookahs were Myas with their standard hoses. I didn't know anything about washable and un washable hoses so I always ran water through them when I cleaned the hookahs and noticed a few weeks ago a lot of brown coming out for a second when I first put the water through them. This undoubtedly is rust with some dirt I'm sure so I have since ordered new hoses and wont use them again. I went with the Namor hoses and I have a KM hose which is not washable so I'll never run water through that one. You live and learn. .

most mya hoses are not washable. By running water through them you've compromises the lining and are probably blowing out the particles. I f you've only been using them for a few months, than chances are you haven't built up enough resin to actually leave a residue on your digits. I would suggest a new hose and only rinse those that you know are washable.

I think you should stop using that hose and get another one.
