Default Washable Hose Wanted

I was planning on buying a new washable hose but since Smiley shutdown his site it seems that no one has anything but Mya. I refuse to buy Mya products for the reasons I have mentioned in the past. Can anyone recommend another washable hose and where to get them?

I can't really help you on buying a washable hose.
If you're not opposed to homemade, you can always make one. There's a tutorial in the homemade section that can help you, good think is you can choose the length and everything pulls out easily.

I've already made one based loosely on the tutorial and it works fine, also the whole clear thing lets you see if you're pulling smoke or not.

Unfortunately... all the ones I have used that are made commercially (washable) are not really washable.

You have to make a real washable hose.

I start with a good set of old hose tips and use this stuff as my hose. Just glue gun the stuff together.



This stuff is much more flexible than the clear vinyl tubing at Home Depot.

Then you can order a hose cover or sew one up yourself to cover the ugly black plastic hose.

Yeah, just make your own man. The cost is almost negligible, and they're really easy to clean. Plus, you can make 'em as long as you want, etc. , and it's easy. Highly recommended.

either that, or you can buy ultra cheap almost disposable hoses. A sites carrying hoses for 2 bucks a pop.

The Nammor hoses at Hookah-Shisha are washable, I think. They look really nice and I've heard good things, except for a recent complaint at HF -- one member received a hose that had a tear in the leather or something. Things like that should be eligible for replacement, though...

Hey Lake, I really like that ugly black hose! I have one and love it, works like a champ! VERY easy to clean, which is a big plus!
I bought mine from an online store, with plastic tips/mouthpiece. I tried to find that hose, but couldn't find it, who carries it? Cuz I would like to make some more of those hoses...

yeah, i would suggest making your own - either viynl or other material.

my only question about that black hose - how the heck can you get all those ridges clean?

and slightly off topic - i brain was wondering why didn't they make a true washable hose - and it hit me while walking at lunch...

if they made a true 100% washable hose - people would only buy 1 hose... ever.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I didn't know that the Mya washables are not really washable. Actually, I was ready to make a hose with some excess clear plastic tubing and the ends of an old Egyptian hose I dumped but they wouldn't fit. I suppose next time a hose wears out I'll try out the idea lake suggested.
