my first hookah was a chinese hookah, the one pictured. after buying a better one i put it away before giving it a good clean, and good drying. today i opened the case it came in and its rusted. it practically rusted on its own! pretty crappy if you ask me! the hose it came with constantly had black dust coming out of it and the pull was really bad! it was also very hard to guage the water level because the base was painted camo colours.
