Default A sad day! Need advice!

I recently purchased my first hookah, regretablly not the best hookah on the market, with no brand on the box, and no threading for the pipes I found myself in a bad situation. I bought a pretty crappy hookah, it doesnt fit together properlly, and when i did put it together, it basicly didnt work. So any advice for salvaging it or rebuilding it with new parts would be really appriciated also ideas for a good starter hookah would be awesome as well.

Which parts, specifically, don't fit together properly? Is it leaking smoke from around the hose port or base grommet? You said it basically doesn't work, so I'm just curious as to what it is or isn't doing that is causing issues. It may be something that can be fixed with some electrical tape or new grommets or even a better hose.

Do you have a picture of the hookah you could post?

Seems like he bought a Chinese with no grommets so use electrical tape to make up the grommets would suggest getting a good quality hookah from hookah John he will make sure that you have everything and that all the relevant bits is there

^^^ Would help us a lot more to help you out, even it is a Chinese knockoff.

Otherwise, you're in a good place to learn and make better investments if you wish to pursue the hookah-hobby.

Teflon tape (Plumber's tape) works better than electrical... And no adhesive!

I'd recommend putting a ring of the tape on the inside of the improv grommet, it'll make it so its reusable and removable. Once you get pics up it'll be easier to help but this is the best we can do without them. Best of luck!
Also I'd recommend upgrading when you get the chance, you'll never look back.

Ah, I forgot about PTFE tape! That's good stuff and doesn't leave any residue.
