Default Ummmm wtf nammor?

I got my order from Hookah-shisha today (review after I sample the items i got (Orange and Melon Al-Waha, and my Nammor hose)) and I rember hearing some one say that you should wash the hose before using it to get rid of the plastic flavor. So I take the hose apart and start to wash it when all the sudden this purple water starts flowing out!? Has any one else's done this? I'll upload a pic as soon as I can find the usb cable for my camera

the purple color is from the color of the hose. im guessing you got a black nammor or one of a dark color. dont worry about it. the same happened when i washed out my black razan. just keep running water through it until the purple colored water stops then problem solved.

yup, i think its from the dye in the mouthpiece. when i first ran water through it the mouthpiece was a dark black but after all that purple colored water came out, the mouthpiece went from dark black to a dark purple color.

Yea both the mouth piece and the hose were coated on the inside with it, washed it out with water, than baking soda / lemon juice combo, and more water, seems clear now, going to try it out here in a few at a friends place.

Same thing happened with my Razan, I washed it with hot water for a couple of minutes and it was gone. Although I stained the "puffs" on the handle...

I just ordered a green razan. Does anyone know if it does it with the green razan as well. Thanks for the heads up though it would suck to stain the little pufs on it :P.

yeah. it happened to me, on both a black and blue. nothing to worry about once you wash it out.

just dont use hot water, use lukewarm. the hot can melt the glue

Hello Wanab,
Whenever you buy a Nammor or A Razan hose, you always want to wash it out but taking the tip off and running water through it untill it comes out clear and for the hose but water in it and hold both ends so it runs back and forth drop that out ans repeat untill it comes out clear. The color that comes out depends on what color your hose is that is the color that they used to die it. You def want to wash it out because it has a disgusting taste you do not want to be smoking.

My green Razan was washed at least 3 times before first use. i didn't see any green dye come out, and my puff ball sweatband thing didn't get all stained.

I've washed my black Nammor four times now, and still taste plastic if I smoke a weaker flavored shisha. Meanwhile, I've got a $7.95 plastic hose from H-S that delivers just as much smoke. I'm certainly not saying the Nammor is all hype, but I know from life experience that if enough people say something's the greatest thing ever, there are people who even if they buy it and find it doesn't live up to the hype will still agree that it's the greatest thing ever. I've yet to have anyone explain to me why the Nammor's so great...

I have been saying it forever!! That little $7.95 hose from H-S is one of my favorite hoses! I just through a cover over it! I have not washed it in over a year, but if I did wash it I would not worry as it is completely plastic!

As for your nammor, they look nicer ... and I use two of those too. Just be sure to wash it out with some baking soda and lemon ..

Cheers!

i have 1 nammor, 2 razans in use, and 3 different km hoses. i like the km hoses but only for specific flavors. the washable ones i use for everything else. they are great for my purposes and i like how they look more than home depot tubing, i felt they were good purchases...

I picked up a Razan yesterday and I am using it right now. I did get some of the dye when I washed it, but the plastic taste is definitely there...no worries though, I'm sure it will go away with more washes/ use

Same with mine. It took two sessions of AF strawberry to get the taste completely out.

I purchased a Razan with 1stGen the other day at ******* Hookah. I just washed it out with water for about thirty minutes and the awful plastic flavor was gone forever.

All washable hoses are plastic based and will have a plastic taste for a little while. As stated the color comes from the dye that is used. It's no big deal and it's not just Nammor.

When my Razan hoses were new I:

1. tied the ends together with a rubber band. making a loop.
2. holding the ends up, I literally filled the hose up with lemon juice and water.
3. hung them over a coathook for a couple of hours.

After pouring out the juice and rinsing them with clean water a couple times, I hange them ends down over the same coathook overnight.

Next morning they're dry and ready to use.
