Exclamation cracked vase - help

Hey, I'm no hookah expert or anything and i'm not even sure what kind of hookah i own lol. But it's a fairly decent sized one with 2 hoses that i picked up from the smoke shop near my house. It was knocked over at a party and theres now a crack in the bottom of the case which leaks and i have to refill the water every now and then.

My main question was if i just used some super glue on the cracks on the bottom would the glue hold up and prevent the leaking? Also is it 100% safe to smoke with? Or does anyone have an alternative idea that could solve my problem? Thanks

So it still holds water and only leaks sometimes? Do you have to refill the water while you're smoking because if that's not what you mean you should always empty out your vase after you smoke. Can you get any pictures up of how bad the crack is?

Instead of using superglue, you could go to lowes or home depot to find a silicone sealant. Like the stuff used to seal aquariums, so it's safe and doesn't absorb anything dangerous in the hookah water. That would be a quick fix, but in the long run you're going to want to buy a replacement vase bro.

I would say go for silicone as well. The superglue will not hold up tho the water long and you would need to re apply. Silicone is made for pretty much this purpose but unless there is a large gap it will be a little difficult to force it into the space to make a good seal. It will be better to just buy a new base but until then I hope the silicone works.

You could go ghetto and stick your vase in a little plastic container filled with water at the same level that your vase water is at. You can use ice in the container so long as the water level meets the level of your vase. So not only do you get rid of your problem until you get a new vase, but you also keep the water colder for longer

Aquarium Sealant will work best IMO.
