    Kurt,

    Poke a needle into the hole in your thingy. That should clear the blockage and restore a good stream. A little Bombay Saphire beforehand may help.

    It happens to all four holes. The problem must be up stream.

    I've never tried blowing out my own hose and I try to have assistance when a good blowing is needed. But I have seen pics of others that tried to do it by themselves. Seemed to work for you... Do you have pics?

    Stuff that turkey with creanberries for me. :D

    I did get wet when I blew it out.
    I unhooked both ends and put 120psi through it. The other end was pointing at me and squrited me, then start flopping all over the place.

    Dude, if you taped that, you could post it on some websites and charge money for the money shot. :flipoff2:

    FYI, I had a slit in my hose which made the pressure drop. Replaced it and everything is cool. I wouldn't know about taking it in the face, but I know that Safado likes it that way. :flipoff2:

    Let me know if you are still having problems, I would be happy to stick my finger in it's tailpipe to see if it is the prostate!!! Shameless medical humor:)

    >> ... then start flopping all over the place. <<

    I left out the part about being sure to secure the hose with one hand before you got started with the blowing.

    I'll update the FAQ.

    Just don't lick it afterwards, we know how much you like to do that. :flipoff2:
