Default Need help finding a new base

Hey all im pretty new to this hookah business so id really appreciate some help. I bought a Mya Gelato about a week ago and after the 3rd or 4th use i was disassembling it and pulled the top of and the down stem cracked the base

It is still working now but im afraid the crack will grow, i know my fault, i am pretty bummed. Anyways this is the hookah i own http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-3026-...se-hookah.html

And i am wondering if any of the replacement bases in the link below are compatible and if so which one would you guys recommend. Thanks so much! and for the record it is a great hookah.

Honestly i like them all but a little help would be much appreciated. Thanks once more!

The 1st and 3rd ones will probably be too big, depending on what size gelato you have. The middle option is threaded so it won't work for a non-threaded hookah. You'll probably want to go with one of these: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-2493-...placement.html

Or one of these they are Acrylic and less likely to crack

Agreed. I have owned both #1 and #2 and used them on my 24" MYA Obelisk. Unless you have an extra large grommet, it won't work.

All those bases should work, with the right grommet, bear in mind mya comes with warrenty on every part i believe, so contact the vendor you bought it from, and im sure they will replace the part for you

Those are way to small... he's refering to the Mya Gelato, not the Piccolo

I have a piccolo and I can tell you that the ones that thefaded showed will fit easily on that one, but definitely not on a Gelato

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I measured the base and its around 7 1/2 inches in height and the opening is about 1 1/2 inches. Is that all i really need to know in getting a new one? Should i just find one with similar measurements?
