Is this considered a defect?
I recently purchased a KM Al Bakr hookah from HC and there is a crack at the bottom of my downstem. When washing the hookah, water fills up in the bulge at the end of the stem. Also, there is a gap between the two tubes at the downstem and it is hard to dry in between the cracks. I'm worried that this will cause my hookah to rust. I've attached pictures because it's kinda hard to describe. Can you guy tell me if these are considered to be defects? If so, do you think HC will be wiling to switch it out for me? Thanks guy.
