Default Deteriorating Hoses

How often should you replace hoses??
I know that after awhile, cheap hoses start to wear out and get holes and little bits come up through the hose and get into your mouth.

I had one hose that lasted about a year... where as some of my other hoses didn't last nearly that long.

Is it a cheap hose thing, or just an in general thing...

My KM hose has already started to go bad after 3 months of using it. I can taste AF Grenadine in it still and the taste won't come out at all. Looks like it won't be long until lil cardboard pieces start coming out of the KM hose

I don't even use my unwashable hose. I keep it in the hookah when its not in use for decoration because it looks nice but when i use the hookah i only use my washable nammor.

Get yourself a Razan hose, it's 100% washable. You'll never have to worry again.

I will always fight you guys on this one! I have washable and unwashable hoses and mine are all functioning properly. I have a KM hose I use just for mint flavors and have been using it for over a year and it rocks! I just blow out the smoke after I am done smoking. I have a few different hoses for different flavors, example: red hose for berry flavors, brown hose for coffee flavors, etc

All my hoses are tasteless, besides maybe a hint of flavor, but that flavor blends with what I am smoking. That is why I color code my hoses for flavors of a specific taste.

For my washable hoses, I don't even wash them, no need .. just blow the smoke out after use. I have two nammors, and MYAs (never wash these! even though they are washable) and a plastic hose for $8 from H-S

I have $3 Healthy Hose from Al Fakher just for Double Apple, one for Chocolate/Mint .. etc.

Just my opinion though, I like having multiple hoses and not having to wash them all the time ..

Spend the extra couple of dollars for a washable hose. They work wonders, haha.

Just get a washable, or keep repalcing unwashables if that is your style. Replace every time they get to the "taste like everyone you ever smoked at the same time" stange. This stage is also known as the, "my hose tastes like ass" stage. Good luck in your hose adventures!

I don't know rob!? but you accumulate them over time. You just got to look for the deals. SaharaSmoke has some discounted hoses for $3, that is pretty cheap! Like I said, doesn't matter if I have a non washable hose, I will use that hose for just Chocolate Mint for instance.
