Other than buying a new one, I don't know how to fix it.

Hookahstore sells $5 acrylic mouthpieces (though they're colored, not clear), check here:

I think h-s might have some as well.

If you have a heat gun, you could try melting both ends (at the break point) and then "fusing" them together, but it won't look that nice

it wont work by melting it man... you can get glass mouthpieces from CH here.. or get the one from HC... or you can just sand down the part of the broken mouthpiece that goes in the hose and you cna have yourself a small mouthpiece LOL

Was it a clean 2-piece break? You might be able to use some sort of epoxy if you can match the broken ends up nicely. Just make sure you let the epoxy cure 100% before smoking through it, otherwise you can be inhaling some not-so-good chemicals

i found some epoxy in my garage and used it to glue it back together, just did it but seems to be sticking and went back together tightly.

but will it be 100% safe to smoke out of once it is all dry and good?

Maybe. It depends on the epoxy. For the most part you should be fine. Check the curing time on the epoxy (not the drying time) and at least double it and wash it thoroughly with water. Draw through it and as long as you don't taste the epoxy at all it should be good. Again, this depends on the epoxy. Mind posting the type and brand?

The best thing to use in this situation (for future breaks) is cyanoacrylate A.K.A superglue. It's an acrylic glue and will seal nicely so long as the break is clean.

Is it just the one bottle or did you mix up the hardener and the epoxy together and apply it?

i just found a tube of Devcon 5 minute glue hardener epoxy, just that

it seems to be sticking together well and looks good, but do you recommend me taking it apart and using super glue for sure?

Epoxy comes in two parts that need to be mixed to actually activate. If you are just using one part it won't harden. Devcon 5 minute should have a solid bond in 5 minutes. If you can still pull it apart by now I would suggest doing so and following the instructions that should be on the bottle for clean up unless it involves heavy solvents of any kind. Clean it thoroughly and get some superglue.

I recommend gorilla glue, I use that stuff like duct tape.

if you don't mind having a short tip get a small nail file and file down the corners into a cone shape, make sure to run it through some water before using it. I had to do this with my nammor hose, it was not as good as the normal mouth tip but was not bad.
