Default Homemade 10 ft hose

[FONT=Calibri]Why I need a 10ft hose hahaha I do not know, but what I do know is that it was only 5 bucks at Home Depot a lot cheaper then if I went to the local hardware storeÖ.Iím thinking about wrapping red tape a where the hose and handle meet, it doesnít need it though because it doesnít leak but it will match the hookah nicely. I also, was going to Rit Dye the hose red, but I donít know if Iím going to, next time Iím at a store like Wal-Mart that carries it I will look to see how much it coasts. What do you guys think?[/FONT]

I'd say be really careful. I know how rigid that type of hosing can be. If you don't use utmost care you will easily tip over a hookah, especially a pumpkin. This is coming from experience. Long hoses and small hookahs= disaster.

[FONT=Verdana]It smokes amazing, better than the one that it came with, and this way when the hose needs cleaning I can either spend the time cleaning it or just spend another 5 bucks on a new hose. Iím 10 feet away because I took the picture last night at like 12 on my bedroom floor; it wouldnít sit right on my bed. jvminner, I know what you meanÖ.. I put hot water threw it in the morning, and I got to say that it made it a lot more better, its fine on the table once water is in it. Iím not sure if I should Rit it or not, what do you guys think?[/FONT]

I would goto walmart and get some fabric and wrap it. I know when I got this tubing it was in a coil, and it's hard to try and get it to be straight and not wanna coil back up. Was yours like this?

I think this would look really cool if you went through with the red dying process. Would look semi-pinkish but I think it would work.

IMO the RIT dye isn't a good idea. I use to have a RC truck and the plastic you dye on them isn't the same material as the hose you made. I tried black RIT on clear fuel tubing and it didn't work at all. More of a mess than it was worth.

Here are some parts i dyed. The black rockers there use to be grey. And them blue A-arms come in white so they can be dyed any color you want.


Not trying to hijack your thread with random RC pictures lol. Just showing you i knew what i was doing... just doesnt work on some stuff lol.

ahhh yes, the plastic tubing from home depot hose. I actually had a chinese pipe with three stems and I plugged one of the stems and ran two clear tubes to a T fitting then one long one from that.... it was epic
