Default hose air pressure

the thing i like about the km / egyptian hoses is that the handles and ends come off. i just hit some new ends on one of my unused kms. the km hose due to air pressure pushes out smoke w/out actually puffing away. i noticed my razan does this very slightly however one of my egyptian hoses (it looks like a twilight hose from km) does not do this and it has a harder pull. this is pretty interesting, anyone notice this?

I have seen my little hose the I made out of home depoy pvc tube and some plumber clamps do this every once and a while. I just figured it was normal so I didn't worry about it to often. I don't really know exactly what it means either, but it looks freakin' sweet.

I have yet to experience this phenomena, but hopefully it happens with my Razan sometime soon. It sound like it would look really cool.

Wait, smoke coming out of the tip of the hose when no one is using it?

Yes, It isn't much smoke. It is just a little bit drifting out of the hose. It seems to happen more often when my shisha is a little hot or if the atmosphere in my room is a little warm. Like when I have a ton of people over.

Wow, never seen the continuous smoke from my KM hoses. But there is always a very small and short time smoke trail after taking a puff.

i dont know ,i kind of like it. it would appear that with the air pressure being good like that its easier to pull smoke out of the hose into your lungs
