Try a SMALL amount of dishwashing soap, warm water, lemon juice, and baking soda to clean out your hookah, especially with a stem brush.
It also sounds like your hookah might be rusting. Is there brown/red spots in your hookah? most likely
Its not Citric Acid, its Citric Salt (big diffrence), and it cleans excelent with hurting the steel.
there is no rust.

I'd recommend you try really scrubbing the shit of of them with dishwashing soap and hot water, rinse well, and then follow with a round of water, baking soda, and lemon juice.
The pipes are fine, the body is the problem, I use air-conditioner pipe, they are the best!

do you leave water after sessions?
I do, and you are right, that is one of the problems, but then I started filling it up with new every time, didn't worked, I realised there is a problem with the water from the tap, i switched to mineral water and it was all good, now I can't smoke a normal hookah and I dontkno why...
anyway, when I cleaned the filfty hookah the fur returned day after.
ps: I couldn't take a picture, can't see anything...
