Default my hookah needs help

This is my first post on the forum, so hello. Ive been browsing for while and this place is amazingly helpful.

So this is my first hookah ive bought, been smoking for a while before, and have used this about 5 times a week for the past month. Its not the greatest at all, but it was cheap and it works alright, but recently I have noticed It doesnt taste all that well. I switched from cheap shisha to roman a while ago and noticed a big difference, but it seems to have gotten worse recently.

I took the hookah completely apart recently, and noticed some rust, I clean it with water after almost every use, so I am thinking that could have been a cause, there is some inisde the ports and the area around them. I tried cleaning with salt, lemon juice and water, and it seemed to take away some of the metalic stink. I also made the mistake of washing the hoses which are now rusted but I am going to mod them with different hoses (as seen on this forum).

Any ideas? I probably should have gotten the mya I wanted.

Here is some pics of the hookah/rust:

If you have a hookah that rusts your not going to be able to do much, you can remove the rust but it will come back, best suggestion is some from of an upgrade, dont know what your cash flow is like but there are some good hookahs out there that wont break the piggy

I'd say your hookah has passed on.... Time to upgrade. Like most other users will recommend, you CANNOT go wrong with a KM.

Bummer ... with those kinda hookahs, you need to take them completely apart, and clean, and leave apart until dry. Otherwise the water just sits in those crevices and makes it rust faster!

I usually wash, and dry .. then let it sit for a few days before putting back together.

The worst part Sambooka is the common chamber in the heart you cannot get in there to dry and that is where the major rust builds up
