Default Hookah isnt tasting so good

Well me and a few friends smoke hookah every day for 2+ hours a day, we all love it. But recently ive been noticing my hookah just tastes awful. We use alot of different brands and flavors, but i dunno if im making the holes too big or we are using crappy coal but someone give me some tips so i can get back to smoking hookah like i used to thanks =p

Do you clean it out w/ warm water and brushes after every use? If not, this is most likely your problem.

I get this problem from one of two things:
1. If i haven't cleaned out my hose. A lot of little black shit gets in there and could make the smoke taste bad, it can even sometimes go in your mouth when you inhale. Gross.
2. Sometimes if you accidentally burn your shisha while using a clay bowl, there will be black stuff near the inner-top brim of your bowl. Any leftover black burnt stuff will make the next bowl taste like ass. Burnt ass, haha. I use brillo to scrub that off on the occasion it happens because my bowl is well glazed.

make sure u do NOT wash a non-washable hose and the other way around. if u wash a non-washable hose, it will rot.
make sure u wash the stem, base and hose well.
poke holes with a safety pin or a thumb tack. something sharp and very thin.
Use natural coals and avoid quicklights, they alter the taste somehow. Make sure the coals are "cooked" well (red all around when u blow into them)
Try to use more but smaller pieces of coal, much better than using less but bigger.
Do not overpack the bowl
Put the coals on the edges of the bowl
make sure the foil is well stretched and not directly touching tobacco, but not too far from it.

that's all I can think of for now

I've read that its been suggested to use a new hose for each flavor you use, which of course can get pretty expensive if you like to vary your tastes. Otherwise I would just get a washable hose.
