Default Best Cheap Hose.

Alright, so im home from college for a while and to my dismay, almost every single hose ive had has rusted (about 8). There is only one that hasnt and that one has a leak in it and the mouthpiece is made from some weird type of metal that tastes gross in your mouth if you dont have a q-tip nearby. So, I was thinking, I want something really cheap and something that wont rust. Honestly, I bet I can make a better cover than all of the ones out there so looks do not matter. Just performance.

If I had a bunch of damaged hoses and wanted a badass hose for cheap, I'd be looking to refurbish what I have. Photolinger has a video on refurb for leather hoses and there are a few in the DIY homemade section, pretty much all for the cost of rubber tube and time spent.

Go with a home made. If you have that many hoses, for a 7 foot hose, you would end up paying probably around 6 bucks. And it would be completely washable.. lol

I was pleasantly surprised by my AF healthy hose. My ONLY problem with them is the small gauge, I like a wide gauge.

When you rinse them out with water it completely cleans it (in my experience.) I guess from the special plastic they used.

I have a green KM washable hose http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...able-hose.html which smokes AWESOME. It's a little on the short side, but there's no metal parts, so no chance of rust.

The word washable is in the URL of the product page, so that's where I got my info from. I don't see why it wouldn't be though, it doesn't have any metal parts so it's not going to rust or anything.

There is a metal coil inside of the leather tubing of the hose to keep the hose from collapsing or restricting the draw. I believe that it was originally marketed by the vendor as a washable but after several users ran water through their hoses and complained of the rust they changed it. Probably kept URL the same. If the hose doesn't explicitly state that it is washable its best to assume it isn't.
OT: The AF healthy hose would be the best "cheap" hose IMO. If you were to invest in a Razan/Nammor/Narbish/Caravan it'd be money well spent though.

jsut put a good magnet next to the hose, if its magnetic its no good, if it doesnt say in the description its no good either. i did read the above and i can see why there would be confusion, but atleast you didnt find out the hard way, kudos for you for research.

I don't have a magnet but I've always heard that no KM hose is washable. Also with my Razan I can push in on the actual hose, the KM I cannot.

it takes no craftsmanship to make a homedepot hose,

but you can just get an AF healthy like said above, and that hose workes great, the tighter draw actually ends up getting you more flavor in the end, so no worries.
