That's nasty but I think I'll keep smoking. I love putting myself in risky situations

Take bright flashlight and shine it into the common chamber through the holes and closely inspect the inside for rust and yes rust can make you sick

Agh. Glad my little Chinese has an open common chamber, at least. Like flutterbi's, it has that "first hookah" value and it still smokes quite decently for a solo smoke. The only oxidation I'm seeing accumulate is on the threads between the parts of the stem. Any recommendations for cleaning it? A cursory google search yielded lemon, tartar sauce, and all kinds of other solutions, so I'm curious what you experts use.

there is Two ways one is to retire the Hookah and let it Rust in Peace the other is to open the heart and remove the rust and then try and close the heart. On my first one I opened the heart by prying the folded over lip up with a flatbladed screwdriver I then used a small wirebrush on a drill to remove the rust. I purchased an O-ring that is the same size as the base of the heart(plated piece) and used the the down stem to hold the heart together again after trimming the excess metal from the pried up lip with a grinder. That hookah is for show only and will not be used again for once it starts rusting it will again.
