If it's washable, run water through it. If it's not, you can whirl it around like a whip or jumprope until you get ALMOST everything out. lol

what hose is it? i had an egyptian with almost the same prob and it was paper based. (it was the hose that came with my egyptian hookah) Most likely that the hose aint all that durable and its time for a new one.

Haha that would be a really bad idea if the hose wasn't washable at all. It makes it rust faster like crazy

Use a drill with a slightly smaller bit then the opening. Or use a narrow metal pipe cleaner (with stainless bristols) youcan find them at home depo.

I used a drill bit that was slightly larger than the opening diameter and drilled me a new hole so to speak.

After you do any drilling you might want to use a can of air and blow any dust, filings or debris out.

DO NOT run water through it, unless it is rated a washable hose, which it probably isn't if it has splintering wood inside the handle.

There are some good suggestions by Fursaken and Husky and the can of air to blow the remains out by Dunkel.

Cheers!

Seriously, any hose that has splinters is a hose you need to toss. Having splinters in your lungs has got to be a horrible idea.

I going to try drilling out the mouthpiece then cleaning it out and see if it helps any. If not the its prob the paper in the hose breaking off.

You can buy an AF healthy hose for 3 bucks or a J & R custom for 8. Both are easy to clean and while neither is perfect they both are pretty good and will last a long time. Dump the splintering hose and stop hurting yourself please.

It's probably not wood bits; it's probably rust.

same here man! when i was new i thought wow! that looks cool! after one session the thing became obsolete. it looked cool holding it and everything and that first session was really good. for some reason it turned to crap when i used it a second time.

tossed it and got a nammor.
