I use a stiff bristle brush attached to a length of stiff wire. Feed the wire through the hose, and pull the brush through the hose a few times then rinse out.

Cool. I was thinking of using a bore cleaning brush with 550 cord attached to the end but I wasn't sure about the metal wires. (Don't worry, its new lol) , i appreciate it!
