Default KM hose problem...

Okay so i have had my Precision for about a month now and i am really enjoying it... But every time after i smoke my hose needs to be cleaned throughly or else you inhale what looks like the lining of the hose... best described as black coffee grounds... its not that i mind cleaning my hose regularly but seriously i have to spend atleast 5-10 minutes cleaning my hose after i have smoked once before every session so any advice/insight would be greatly appreciated. May just pick up a razan if this continues... (insight in this would also be appreciated)

the km's are great, although i wouldn't wash them. i have used mine for 3 months now and i don't have any problems, i was my hookahs but not that hose. the importers say they are washable but there is metal in there that will rust. your best bet is to get a washable hose like a razan.

Sounds like your hose is rusting. BTW, regular KM hoses are NOT washable.

Pick up a Razan if you want...Its gonna be one of your best investments when it comes to hookah :P

Your hose is just crusty on the inside from all the times you have smoked with it. It's completely broken in.

Don't wash it with water, but what you can do is blow air (compressed air or what have you) through it to clear out most of the crusty gunk. use of water in the hose will build mildew, ruin the lining, rust the wire coils, and make the cardboard (what comprises the solid handle parts) soggy and will split.

Razans are great, I would recommend putting the Km tip into the Razan and the inhale will be more controlled, instead of an in your face blast of smoke.
