Default Is this what all cheap hoses are like?

keep in mind this is what came with my sahara

it appears to be a metal coil wrapped in plastic, covered in a layer foam, another layer of plastic and lastly the felt.



I'm going to attempt a homemade hose and disassembled one of my hoses

That is why I would be very careful with washable hoses that have stainless steel coils, since they can still rust sometimes. I'd like to see what a hose with plastic coils or whatever is used looks like..

AF Healthy hoses may not look amazing, but you can be sure they will not rust.

I was surprised that the plastic didn't have any funk on it at all. The mold only clung to the metal coil.

What are you planning on using for materials on your hose build?

I plan on useinv the ends off this hose and a rubber hose so it's washable. I haven't decided how I'm going to cover it yet.

Washable hoses like the Narbish, Razan, etc... are made of a corrugated rubber hose with the material wrapped around it. Then this is attached to a piece of plastic pipe.

That hose looks pretty good to me. They are usually worse, built of the metal coil, some wrapping material (mostly labels of arabic soft drinks but people have also seen sheets of erotic magazines here ) and then a thin layer of felt. The metal can be either stainless or normal steel, this is how a cheap hose looks after a few months of use:
