Default Rust in the hookah heart..

I just gave my hookah a big cleaning when i out of curiosity put a q-tip inside the "heart" to see if any filth was in there and every time i poked it in it came out covered in copper/brownish rust
How bad is this ? could this affect the flavor because the last 3 sessions all tasted kinda.. off

I bet that is actually just tobacco residue. Every time I smoke I have to clean my grommets because they become coated in this slippery substance, as does the hose port and the inside of the hookah itself. When I clean it out, the brown/reddish/sometimes green stuff washes out.

I would just clean your hookah thoroughly.

You also need some sort of abrasive in it too, like baking soda. It might make a little hookah volcano, but it should clean it well.
