Default Question for the owners of AF hookahs...

Just got my AF small solid...

is there supposed to be a half inch between the stem and the base? maybe it's the grommet i got with it. it's totally airtight and with the bottom tray it's not really noticeable....

here's a poor picture that may not illustrate what i am talking about.

i have the AF medium solid and mine doesnt have a gap even when i dont use the bottom tray. i suppose you could trim the grommet if it bothers you. i actually wouldnt mind it if mine were a bit tighter.

It depends entirely on the grommet. When I first got my KM for example, the grommet was very tight and the stem was quite difficult to pull out for cleaning after sessions. I decided to sand the grommet down but I took it down too much, therefore I had to buy a new one. As for my two Nour Syrians, I've noticed with different grommets the way the stem fits to the base is different from one to the other. What I would do is just let it be my friend. If it's a tight fit and you are air-tight, then all is well. If not, replace your grommet. I hope this helped

Yeah, there's usually a space between the stem and the base for me too.

But hey, who cares if it's on straight and is airtight?

^_^ Some grommets come too tight and require lubrication or sanding to fit properly.

I get the same thing, but it smokes like a beast!
I have ordered all kind of groments for it and no fit....

My next order from SouthSmoke will consist of the large white mya ones.
Hopefully it will do the trick

I bought the medium one and the black grommet did not fit. I bought a silicone one and it works great. I tried to file down the original with no luck, it was just easier to replace.

Mine fits nice and snug. It's definitely a gasket issue.

Agreed, it's a total pain in the ass to get that stem in all the way because of that damn grommet.
