Re: Just bought a AF Solid - having some problems.
Just got my small AF in the mail today myself and I had a heck of a time getting the purge valve off upon test fitting all the parts for a dry fit. There is a ball bearing inside mine but it had a burr on the side of the fitting which would have caused a seal issue. Otherwise the hookah is amazing. Rocking out to some SB White peach now. :-) I'm getting decent smoke with 2 CH QL coals. I'm running double tin foil over the funnel bowl and poked 3x3 holes shown in johns vid review. The sultan hose is pimp. It matches my shag carpet in my house. LOL
I set up water level to be about an inch above the bottom of the downtube and am going to experiment to get the best results from a taste/smoke density balance.
Both a phunnel grommet and hose grommet came with my pipe. I couldnt be happier with my purchase. Thanks John!
