The plated common chamber isn't worth the trouble. I thought I liked the tight draw at first, but it got to the point where it was making me sore smoking it. Also, you will NEVER be able to clean it at all. It's impossible, even with a salt/baking soda/lemon juice cocktail. If water gets in there and doesn't come out, which some won't, here comes the rust.
Hookahs like this tend to be very well made, save the plated chamber.
I know most of you guys weren't around to see the Syrians that an old vendor had, but they were the same design, and they were Solid as all hell but the plated common was hard to get past.
