Hookah Diving Scams
SEVERAL HOME BASED COMPANIES (SELLERS) IN THE HOOKAH DIVING INDUSTRY ARE CURRENTLY SELLING TOXIC NON BREATHING GRADE HOSE AS DIVE HOSE!
As with any industry; there are good and bad companies and sellers in the marketplace. Hookamax is proud to be one of the good companies that produces high quality hookah diving systems, built and designed by professionals that care about your safety. Hookamax Dive Systems has been a leader in the hookah diving industry for over fifteen years. Unfortunately, several home based businesses posing as actual companies pop up every few years and assemble so-called hookah diving systems by utilizing over the counter components to include dangerous PVC air hoses. Breathable air grade hoses (food grade hoses) are manufactured using a special process that ensures that the hoses don't gas off toxic, cancer causing toxins that are found in standard PVC air hoses. Breathing grade hoses all contain a special food grade liner that is clear. All breathing grade hoses have special stamping on the hose that designates it as a breathing, or food grade dive hose. All legitimate hookah companies are willing to supply you with a copy of their hose certification if you ask. Currently all breathing air hoses on the market are either yellow, or occasionally black. If the hose is another color or does not say breathing or food grade, don't breath through it. The con-men try their best to make their hoses look like the real thing and in most cases even use a yellow hose. If there is no stamping on the hose simply unscrew the end and examine the liner, or contact the company that manufactured the hose and ask for a certification. Several home based sellers are currently falsely advertising their toxic hoses are non-toxic or breathing grade when they are not. It is your health and your safety so please do your research!
