Is it the mod stem? The one that unscrews into million pieces? What hose are you using?

the stem is on hole thing and the hose is just the crap one that came with it. I do have rust on the stem but the hose is not washable and I can't see down it.

both try taking a pull directly from the hookah without the hose and if you cant taste the metallic taste then its your hose but if you can its your stem.

I've got the egyptian stem one, had it for quiet a while and currently use it as my main rig, haven't experienced any rusting yet (knock on wood), the velvet ssc hoses on the other hand rust like no other, 3 out of 4 of mine rusted within months, had to upgrade to washable.

with those SS hoses i get a metallic taste just from putting the metal hose tip in my mouth.....since they're metal i hate having metal hose tips, that's what the plastic hose tips were invented for i swear. bleh.

I honestly haven't really heard that many good thing about SS hookahs. That being said, their vases are awesome, I just don't know that I'd get a stem from them.

Someone on PBN's hookah thread had theirs rust, they contacted SS and got a new one for free I think. So maybe good customer service is the answer.

The stem is where your rust is no doubt, the SS stems just rust all to quickly unless they are perfectly dried after each use. I dont know what size base you have, but you can buy a pretty cheap KM stem from H_S and you will not have any of the issues you are having right now

That is what causes a metalic taste and a rusted hose will do the same

That's unfortunate man, after your trouble swapping the stem out already... It's prob not your first choice to drop more cash on a another stem, but a KM stem would solve all your problems. You wouldn't need a new pipe for a LONG LONG time, if ever.

I think it might be the hose, depending on which type you're using, of course, but I've had similar taste with certain hoses... get a Narbish or a Razan (unless you already have)

ugghhh yes deff a rust problem.. i would just not even bother an upgrade to something new all together. i would say run some hot water down the stem and then take a cleaning brush, see if it flakes out. if it does at all then u know you got a rust problem in the stem.

Think I might as well just say Hell with it and get the KM I have been wanting.
