Default Identify the Hookah? & leak issue?

Hello, i recently bought a hookah from a local store and they claimed it was MYA and that its brass, i' am not an expert at this so i figured id ask the pros =)

Also the vase gasket leaks, i was wondering where and which gasket to buy. The diameter of the hole is 4.4cm.

Also i was looking at metal screen and wind covers, but from reading some stuff i think foil is the best option?


for gaskets i was looking at this:

looks like a generic chinese to me, not a Mya

As far as the leak, wrap some electrical tape around the gasket and should solve your problem

go somewhere else and get something better, or buy online, you will be dissapointed with that one.

What did you pay for it if you don't mind sharing?

I love the base but the stem looks shady.

They charged me 80$ for it. I like the way it looks, it works just fine besides the leak witch i will fix.

Yeah i would use electrical tape but i don't want it to look ghetto, besides it comes off very easily after few uses.

unfortunately, its a fake, and there seems to be many fakes going around, but remember, mya hookahs are the only quality chinese hookahs on the market, so make sure there are no leaks or deformaties, and look for the mya logo around, where the purge valve and hose adapter is.

That should help. Hey guys is there a post comparing washable hoses to non-washable hoses, etc? The best I can find is this: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=248

Anyway look into it a little bit, you may want a washable but there are benefits to having a non-washable one as well.
