Default How long do you use an unwashable hose?

I noticed condensation on my narbish hose tip which made me wonder about the bunch that like to use non-washable hoses over washables.

Wouldn't the condensation affect the metal(or any other non washable material)in the non washable hoses?

Indeed it would. Noticed you're in Hawaii too, I'm sure the humidity doesn't help. I used my unwashable hose for quite some time, about a year I think before it started tasting terrible and flakes would fly through.

Even before they start flaking they can be gross. I had a Mya hose that I thought was nice, dry, and really just plain miraculous. Upon taking it apart, about a year into its life, to use the ends for a homemade hose I found that the sludge-like mess within the hose was preventing the chunks from being sucked off of the rusty coil. I kind of like the stock Mya hoses because they have the flexibility of a leather hose without the handle which makes them far more portable.

I used mine for almost a year until it started to taste like a cocktail of old smoke, ash and metal, 'Smoashetal' for short. Thats when you let the hose sleep with the fishes

I've been using my two KM hoses for a while now, I just look after them well. I purge the hookah and the hose immediately when I'm done with the bowl, and then hang the hose up with the ends down to cut down on moisture.
