Default My KM...is it just because its new?

Ok so Ive had my KM for a couple months but I dont smoke that much anymore. Anyways, after Im done with a session and go to clean my hookah I notice that just running water through it cleans it all out. My previous hookah I had to use a scrubber every time. But it seems like with my new KM the tobacco doesnt seem to "stick" to the inside of the stem.

Are KM's just awesome like that or is it just because its still pretty new?

Probably because it's pretty new. I would still run a scrubber through it if you have one. I've had it where I ran just water through and the water was clean but after I scrubbed it a nice brown color cam out.

I agree that it is better to use a brush after each use to clean the prior smoke's "stuff" out. This will keep build-up out, and make each cleaning easier. If you just use water, in time you will need to brush like crazy, and you may retain prior smoke's flavor/residue.

Even though the water runs clear brush the stem for smoke residue still sticks to the inside of the stem.

I clean mine quite regularly, and I just run hot water through it. The water where I live is very hot, but I usually don't bother with brushes too often. Maybe once every 10 bowls or so.

When I clean my KM very thoroughly and use it, I tend to just run hot water through it afterward and it works great. I only use the brush maybe once every 4-5 sessions. I do the same thing with my Mya Arcylic 18" and since I don't change flavors much "Vanilla/Cafe Latte" I just run hot water through it and it smokes great.

I run hot water through every session and then on every 3rd session I brush it out.

Same here I could be running water through them all day long (it isn't km specific either) it comes out clean, once the bush hits it, you get all sorts of shades of brown.
