Unhappy Hooka is DIVORCING me :(

Hey everyone the names Hubbly

I couldn't find a thread on the topic i'm about to talk bout cause of two
reasons:- 1[ I'm so fudging lazy these days lol] and 2[I'm new to here
SO I DUNNO waht the hell goes on in here and need some special
treatment in the 'Help me out' department lol]

SO ANYWAY....i've been smokin hooka for few years now an
i just bought a new Pumpkin Hooka, its great, small ,compact, fits in my wallet (I WISH), came with great flavours
and stuff...only prob is, the nigerian who sold it to me (i'm
from south africa so its not a racist comment lol) gave me
a viciously,terrribl,CRAP pipe its plastic so i dunno if that
helps....

The reason why i is saying "Hooka is DIVORCING me " is cause
i dunno what could be wrong with it, it doesn;t seem to pull
very well at all and theres a bad aftersmell after i clean out the
base and pipe, everything is clean inside bt i dunno, maybe
its phsycosimatic lol. I think there are a few
reasons....Could it be the pipe? Am I adding too much water?
Have I added to much flavour? Have I made too many holes
in the foil? I jus dunno wat to do?

If anyone can tell me what is the proper routine
on how to go about setting up a good hub with
good water measurements, enough flavour, holes
etc, I WILL SEND YOU ONE OF MY PIANOS, ONE OF
MY LEGS AND.........my goldfish thanks alot
guys,

hubbly

Get a new hose for it and throw out your old hose.

Should be good as new after these steps. Cheers!

First up welcome to HP Hubbly.
Sorry to rain on your Parade Hubbly just clearing up a few things:

1. You are a South African still residing in South Africa if the Answer is yes the following will hold true.
2. A Nigerian sold you the Hookah tells me it was bought at a fleamarket.
3. The Pumpkin Hookah will be a Chinese knockoff with a plated common chamber (steel if I am not Mistaken)
4. The hose is Plastic outside with a metal spring inside and not washable.
5. Check the purge valve the pumpkin I bought had the base that screws into the heart screwed in the wrong way around and would not seal never mind purge.
6. The Maya type bowls that comes with that hookah is enormous get a small replacement Egyptian bowl instead.
7. Check that the Grommet for the hose was supplied.
8. Use a Flashlight and shine it into the heart through one of the holes in the plate (not the big one in the middle) look for rust in the heart.
9. If you find rust you have your culprit for the taste.

I have found that the little plated Hookahs that look like Egyptians is a traditional chambered and is made of thin brass plate that is plated no chance of rust. Just ensure the ports are clean and not halfway obstructed by solder and you will have a Hookah that purges and smokes good. Beware that the hoses supplied here are all plastic with metal coils inside and no matter what they tell you they rust.

rust and shit, I CHECKED AN I WAS LIKE "WTF!! NO!!" thanks

is cute and is light but i'm wonderin if there might be a hole
by the grommits or something cause i checked (after the rust
sighting SCARY STUFF >: ( ) cause if the airflow is excaping
that could be why my pulling is terrible and and no smoke
is residing....?dunno man...i jus dunno...

My little pumpkin had the same issues and I did some open heart surgery on it and discovered this rusting tendency. Unscrew the purge cap and check the section of the purge valve where the ball bearing rests on if it is flat then the purge is in the wrong way around should have a deep indentation for the ball to rest in about half the ball must be showing. That would be where your air leak is coming from.

Ok just to clarify for the rest of the HP members here in South Africa we have a large influx of Illegal aliens mostly from Mozambique Zimbabwe and Nigeria the Nigerians are notorius for being Druglords and shady caracters here and thus some of the population takes huge exception for being called a Nigerian. So Hubbly is rightfully not trying to offend anyone just stating a fact. Being that HookahPro is an international community.

(I sometimes think we have more Nigerians Mozambiqcans or Zimbabweans than left in their Home contries here albeit legally or Illegally).

A while ago there was a situation here whereby the locals started going into the squatter camps and reffugee camps and assaulting the Illegals to force them to flee back to their homelands. Their reasonning was that the illegals were taking the food from the mouths of their children by working here causing unemployment for them.
