Default Brand new hookah hose tastes like metal.

As most of you know, i just purchased a new hookah off dirtcheaphookah.com. I have a problem.

The hose that came with it tastes like metal, and smells like metal. Like very badly. What does this mean? Did they send me a rusty hose or what happened?

This is the hose that came with it. I know its metal tip but my other hose tastes and smells nothing like this when i received it.

I'd contact DCH, they may possibly send you out another hose. Just explain the situation.

yeah, sounds like rust. Usually you can blow through the hose and see the rust come out of the other end.

hmm...strange. I got the same metallic taste when my hose rusted. You can run some lemon juice through it...but it's only going to be a temporary fix. It's just going to make it rust worse. haha

All new hoses taste weird when you first use them. The new synthetic leather smell is basically interfering with the smoke flavor. It takes at least 2-3 smokes before you break it in, then you are good to go.
