Default brand new nammor hose is... RUSTING!

i received my brand new nammor hose, washed it and hung it up to dry two nights ago. yesterday morning i awoke to find that the end which inserts into the hookah is rusting. in looking closely inside the hose, i can see a plastic lining in between the outer hose material and the metal coil - i am not sure if it is supposed to be like this but i am wondering if this is a manufacturing error since the metal coil is exposed.

either way, a never-been-used washable hose is rusting. what a piece of...

when i received the hose, the grommets were loose so obviously the glue used to secure them was not the best. i read about others having this problem, no big deal. are you not supposed to wash the hose without the grommets? and i used water more on the cold/warm water when i was washing so it's not a temperature issue.

i bought it from southsmoke. they are offering me a south smoke certificate, which is nice, but now i have to pay shipping a second time to get a hose where either the manufacturer is lying about it being washable or has such poor quality control that its washable hoses rust on arrival. and there is nothing else on their site that i need (their other hoses are nothing special).

very very disappointed. anyone else have a similar experience?

Sorry to hear. The threading on my Nammor has started to come apart, but never had a problem with rusting. Maybe you were just unlucky and got a bad hose to begin with...I say home depot that ish and make your own hose.

Has to be rust in the water bud. I just now looked very closely at mine and theres nothing that can rust. theyre washable. It has to be your water.

it's definitely not the water. i cleaned it in my kitchen sink, which i have been using for close to 3 years now. i was watching the water come out of the hose too as i heard that some residue can come out during the first cleaning, but the water was clear. the hose was fine after i washed it too. only the next morning after the water had been lying inside the hose evaporating did i see the rust.

i looked inside my hose and there is a metal coil in there, so there is something very fishy going on with nammor. i was very surprised to see a metal coil, as i thought washable hoses don't have these.

don't suppose you could post a picture?

If there is indeed metal in there then you should return it. Nammors/Razans/Narbishes do not have metal inside them. The hose itself is made entirely of plastic, IOW they are a plastic convoluted hose. They are not like unwashables hoses made up of by a metal coil wrapped by foil paper or plastic wrap.

You need to post a picture. Nammor hoses have no metal in them. If your hose has metal in it then it is not a nammor. Can you like to the exact product you ordered?

Also, where was the rust exactly? Was it on the end of the hose or inside it? If the actual tip had rust on it i would suspect that your hose port was rusting.

I really think that the hose you have is not a nammor, because nammors have no metal on any of its parts.

Actually bracque is right. at first they have this rust appearace when you clean the water out after a shesh. use warm water for the first couple of seshs and youll be good.

hey guys,

pictures attached. you can clearly see the metal coil, and lots of rust. either southsmoke is selling fakes (really nice fakes, which i doubt), or nammor is going downhill fast.

not even one smoke out of this hose before it fell apart.

I am pretty sure that is not a Nammor Hose. I have opened an old one of mine and it is all plastic on the inside. I would demand my money back if I were you.

No need to be pretty sure about it. It's certainly an unwashable hose.

i bought it from southsmoke.

the initially offered me credit to get something else. they did this without seeing any pictures, which is a nice start. my problem is that i don't think i should have to pay shipping twice for a hose, and, i don't like any of their other hoses. i would normally take another nammor but if the nammors they sell are fake, then obviously i don't want another one.

i asked them for my money back, or for someone there to carefully inspect their stock to be sure they have a real one to send me (and no shipping charge).

their pre-sale service and shipping were good and fast, and initially their customer service in this instance has been good. i hope they continue with this level of service and do what's right. i'll be sure to report back here either way.

the only nammor-look-alike hose that i know has metal coils is the Caravan, but caravan coils are stainless steel which doesnt rust.
