Default Power cleaning your hose

Just recently I discovered a extremely effective way to thoroughly blow out my hose using my standard vacuum cleaner. I already made a video about it, but I've found it so useful I thought I'd post about it here too.

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/video...s&videoid=2230

I have a wet/dry vacuum also which I've found has made it easy to wash out non-washable hoses. Just wash it with lemon juice like you might a washable hose, then use the vacuum method to totally dry out the hose when you're done.

You just need a vacuum with a hose and a small kitchen funnel. Give it a try. I've only been doing it for a short time, but I suspect it can reduce overall ghosting and over time increase the life of the hose in general.

Just saw the video and love the idea! (I like your video making style BTW.)


You should start yourself a thread in the member video forum. If you plan on making lots of videos, you'll be glad you started the thread now instead of going back over your videos to gather the info later on!

Thanks

That's a good idea to start the thread. I've been wading in slowly because the way I'd like the videos to be when I'm done is a little time consuming. I'm not sure I'll be doing it all that often. The last two just seemed like ideas that were too good not to make some videos for.

Where should the thread go, if I decide to do that?

Post a thread here..

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=37

I have a thread started called "Dees Videos" or some such, take a look at it.

I edit the first post whenever I make a new video and also post a reply to it so that it pops up in "new posts".

Nice video, i thought this might be a good idea to start some shisha off as well, like if you have a cafe instead of starting every shisha yourself you might be able to hook it up to a new vacuum cleaner and get it to start it off

I was afraid I might end up in the 'out of context sayings' thread. Hey, what can you do?

Ghosting hasn't been too much of a problem for me. For some reason I get no ash or residue whenever I smoke (32" KM, phunnel bowl, and CN's). However, I found your vacuum method to be extremely useful when using clay bowls and quick lights, which is what my friend uses. Thanks again for the unique idea.

I'm really glad someone has been able to use it!
