Default DISASTER!

So, I was assembling my hookah, when I was just about to put the bowl on the top, the bowl is a screw on so I was putting it on when it fell, and broke in half? WHAT TO DO? WILL SUPER GLUEWORK FOR THE SHORT TERM?

I super glued my Egyptian bowl man worked fine
Glue let it sit for 1 - 2 hours BUT I was lucky as it was the lower part of the bowl near to where you connect it to the stem, so it doesnt get as hot as most super glues are not heat resistant. You can find heat resistant glue but they are expensive and the idiots at bunnings etc look at you like wtf when you tell them what you wanna glue etc!

Goodluck !

Get a phunnel bowl! or vortex! and to answer you question yes super glue could work but I wouldn't trust that solution when the bowl gets too hot and you're inhaling from it. It depends on where the break is. I would just buy a new bowl. My two recommendations are a small phunnel bowl or a mini vortex. Vortex costs less and is pretty good but my favorite is still phunnel. Good luck.

The biggest hookah bowl disaster would be if you were putting the bowl on, you knocked the hookah off the counter, breaking the base, and the stem and hose for some reason caught on fire so.... you just need a new bowl or just glue it together hehe.

Same as smokey said.. I had an egyptian bowl a long time ago.. Broke pretty good near the bottom. I glued it with some super glue, held it for a while, let it sit, than washed it.. Worked fine.

i would be carful with glue if it gets too hot the fumes are probably terrible for you. i would say head to a local shop by a crap one for now, till you can place an order and get a new good one or even a phunnel or vortex.

Agreed... I am not sure how hot super glue can get before it becomes toxic. That would suck and is not worth it!

+1 ... It's not that hard to make an orange/ apple/ melon bowl... If you don't have any fruit in the house, I'm sure there is a 24 hour walmart near you ....

That's a bummer, my friend. As most people have said, I would either:

1)Go to a local shop and drop the coin on something that will tide you over until you can make an order with one of the vendors

or

2)Make fruit bowls.

Please note the bowl is a screw on so standard bowls will not work If memory serves me correctly there was a post a while back out Hookahs with screw on bowls so a new bowl can only be gotten from the original supplier.
