Question Mold on the outside of KM hose?

So one of my KM hoses might have mold on the outside. I'm about to go to work so I can't post a pic right now but I will as soon as I can. I don't know much about the structure of the KM hose but does this mean that there is mold on the inside too Again, I'm not sure if it's mold, but I think it is.

Anyone else have this issue with their KM hose? I can't taste anything weird in the hose.

Way too much of a risk. Sure penecilin (sp) is just mold, but too risky

Mold can be extremely dangerous if Inhaled. It can cause severe lung infections and put you in the hospital faster than you can blink.

Ditch the hose and buy a new one, don't even try to save it.

If you smoke out of it with all your flavors, get a Narbish or Nammor.

Pic will come in the morning. I want to see if anyone else has seen the same thing happen. There might be a thin layer of felt on the outside of the hose. Does that sound right for KM hoses?

I got the hose when I got my KM double pear (from John) about 4-5 months ago.

Definitely get rid of it. Fronting some $ for a new hose vs. getting sick from a moldy one? Need I say more?

But yeah, if you don't have your health, you don't have your hookah.
