Default alright i got a problem....

i've been puffin outta my 32" Hafa KM hookah for over a year now, and it's been slowly dyingg....

so my base grommet has a rip on the side of it and a lot of air leaks through the gap between the stem and base....

I can't find a grommet that fits it perfectly, any suggestions?

electrical tape will help make grommets that are a smidge too small big enough to seal.

Just get a piece of a wet paper towel and wrap it around the part of the stem where the bowl goes. Always works for me

LMAO! Oops :P Thanks race.

IDK, I had the same prob since the vase grommet was too big. But, like everyone has said, I think electrical tape will work. But, if water gets in it

Might as well just buy a new one I'm sure ********** can hook ya up.

Friction tape from home depot/lowes might work until u get a new grommet. Wont stick to the vase or the stem...only itself.

These are problems that will come over time with any hookah regardless of make or model. Some will fall to this faster than others though.

Regarding finding a base grommet to fit your hookah that is why it is best to have the exact measurements and call a vendor to seek their advice.
