Default Can I fix this hose?

My v3 narbish got broken on accident, whats the best way to fix this? Its not really broken I think it just kinda came apart. I was thinking some hot glue to make sure it gets a nice airtight fit. If got a pretty big crownhookah wand that I don't want to break. Is it worth fixing or should I wait and order a new one?


Any Ideas?

Hot glue or Gorilla Glue would do the trick.

Gorilla Glue should work fine. You just need to make sure that you follow all the instructions. It's not a glue that you just apply and it sticks.

Seems like a good opportunity to get rid of one of the the pompoms lol.

How did it break? Did it just fall apart?

I had it in my bag, and then I opened the bag after a short car ride and the wand was still attached to the pompom only attached by a red rope. There is like a double sided sticky tape on the shaft of handle. I'll try to get it to stick to that again.

Looks like they glued the tassel to the grommet and not the handle, fucking weird. First use a heat gun or a hair dryer to soften up the glue and get the tassel and the grommet separated, then wrap the string back up and use some electrical tape to hold it in place. Get some glue and glue the grommet inside the pipe (handle, whatever), then apply some glue inside the tassel and stick that back on the handle. I've disassembled quite a few narbishes and fixed them that way.

If you end up using Gorilla Glue, keep in mind that it expands as it dries, and as kalutika said, read the instructions. Both surfaces that are being glued need to be wet.

Gorilla glue makes a version of super glue (cyanoacrylate) it contains some sort of silicone particles and dries similar to silicone glue, at least that's what I've used, works great.

Should I worry about any of this glue being "people" safe?

Or get PVC weld that they use for PVC conduits but let it dry in a well ventilated area should be fine after that

I would say dont use hot glue or any typr of glue. You see the pompom part, take that apart:
1-Remove the pompom
2-then unwrap the red string from the pompom (not handle)
3-now the grommet shoud be free so tape that to the handle
4-using double sided tape, wrape the bare sides of the handle untile the grommet
5-now wrap the string around the double sided tape till the grommet but keep enough space/tape so you can add the pompom
6-now add the pompom

that should do it, if you have any problems then pm me. I know this coz I modified my narbish to have a shorter hose port handle
