Default Dead Hose?

I recently decided to pull my old mini mya acrylic out of the closet for fun and it did not store well. The hose has rust all over the tip and as far in as i can fit a q tip, is there any way i can clean this and make it usable again?

My understanding is that once it gets to that point, it's done for. You certainly don't want to be inhaling rust!

crl is food safe so as long as your rinse it you should be good

if its just the hose just get a different hose, the myas are brass with chrome (or nickel not positive) plating so they cant rust, but they can get a bad taste that a good scrub with dawn then a soaking with vinegar gets rid of

Pull the ends off and replace the hose section with clear foodgrade pvc tubing

From my experience Myas can most definitely rust. I cut the ends off and decided to pull the coil out of the leather to see how bad it was and it was rusted all the way down the length of the hose. I think they just use an iron coil, because it was not brass or chrome.

I've done this with a Mya hose and it worked well +1 for this idea. Cost me $4 for the vinyl tubing and it also improved the draw of the hose. Its also kinda practical because you can see the smoke in the hose but this really isn't as cool as you would think.

o no the hoses do have steel but the stems of myas dont (other than the bb and maybe the ports but they are pretty decent stainless). i think i got confused since the OP is talking about using a KM instead when its just the hose that is the issue, than again the op might be just talking about a KM hose

No i have a KM that is in fine working order (thank god) i just got my old mya mini out of the closet for fun and realized the hose was trash, i would probably break down and cry if my KM hose rusted.

if it has rust it is shot, dont try to repair it dont try to salvage it, if it has a pretty decore to it you can take that but if any part of the hose that is used for smoking becomes rusty its done for. its simply not worth the health risk.
