Default Hose Smell

Hey everyone! My name is Zach. I have been smoking hookah for over a year now but just recently decided to buy my own. If you want to see it, I have a blog on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/zlj1989 I have probably used the hookah about 8 times now. It is pretty good and it's nice not having to travel an hour just to get to the hookah lounge but every time I've smoked it, I seem to get this weird metallic taste in the smoke. I have narrowed it down to the hose because when I smell it I can smell that same smell I get when I smoke it. I have tried washing the hose and the entire hookah with baking soda and lemon juice. The smell has barely gone away. Any suggestions? Should I get a new, fancier hose or just give it a little time because the hookah is still new? Thanks everyone!

Was the hose washable?
Because if not, it's definitely rust.

It's just the hose that came with it, so I guessed it was washable. If you need to look at it, I show it on youtbe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18P8E8HslHA

That hose is not washable, I don't know how many times you have washed it but I am pretty sure it is rusted. Get yourself a new one & stop using that hose because you are inhaling metal particles.

What Thunder said.
These hoses are made of metal rolled into coils and then made air tight by that fabric or plastic or whatever it is that's on the outside of your house.
You can see the coils when you look at the hose.

Make sure you never get it wet because it will rust extremely easy.

And yes, don't smoke it anymore because inhaling rust is not good for you health at all!

I hope you have a shop nearby where you can just go pick one up instead of having to wait for one to come in the mail..

Hope that helped!

You could always cut off the tips and replace the hose part with PVC tubing of the same thickness. A number of people have done it, and you can find some tutorials in the homemade section.
