Default Replacing Gromets?

i was cleaning my hookah and noticed that my grommets were tainted with mixed hookah taste i don't see how that would effect the taste of the smoke just wondering if anyone replaces them periodically since boiling them seems to stretch them after a few times.

Yes, I change them every so often. It never affected the taste in my view but I have a ton, when you buy stuff you get free ones here and there. So, I just change them when they start to look nasty or start to break away.

You can buy grommets really cheap. I always keep a few on hand just in case one gets damaged.
