Default Quick Question on KM RAINBOW HOSE

I bought a km green single pear hookah from hookah john that comes with a green rainbow hose
http://**********.com/product.sc?pro...&categoryId=11

The question is: Is the hose washable?

Ty,
Mike

an easy way to tell is, once you the hose take a magnet to the hose part and if it sticks then its not washable

Definitely not washable.. I got 2 of em. the handle is like a strong cardboard type material (i learned this cus my friend mistakedly washed his hose) and when it got wet, it didnt stay straight, its bent at a weird angle just from being went.

edit: I just put a magnet to both of my KM hoses and they both are metal coils..

so dont wash it. lol

no they are not washable.
KM hose are of good quality and if you look after them they will last a while.

They're not even cardboard. The tubes are made of wrapped paper. I kinda like taking apart KM hoses just to see what kind of paper they used. The last KM I disassembled and rebuilt was made from some poster.

Why not sell it then or make it a dedicated hose for your most smoked flavor? Oh and if you do rethread your Nammor hose, wrap the new thread before removing the existing one because it can be a PITA to rethread the loose hose covering and keep it as tight as it originally was.

$7 profit is pretty good for a hose you wont use.

excellent hoses, however i dont think they are.. i got one and it smokes great but it tends to keep teh flavour in the hose :/ especially strong flavours such as mint or melon
