Re: A sad day! Need advice!
Which parts, specifically, don't fit together properly? Is it leaking smoke from around the hose port or base grommet? You said it basically doesn't work, so I'm just curious as to what it is or isn't doing that is causing issues. It may be something that can be fixed with some electrical tape or new grommets or even a better hose.
Do you have a picture of the hookah you could post?
