Default Leaking Hose

[FONT=Calibri]Looking for some Help, I just recently purchased a Nammor hose, it looks great but the first time I went to use it I find it has an air leak between the hose and the mouthpiece. I tried taking it off and putting it back on several times but I canít get rid of the leak. Can anyone out there who uses a Nammor house tell be if thereís suppose to be a o-ring around the mouthpiece or inside the hose were the 2 pieces join together?[/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Thank you[/FONT]

Yes, there should be a grommet inside. Does your mouthpiece fit in snug, or is it loose?

[FONT=Calibri]It fits pretty snug but there isn’t any o-ring. I did try to really cram it on and that cut down the leak but didn’t stop it completely.[/FONT]

Mine doesn't have a O ring but it does have a grommet. Looks just like a bowl grommet...does yours have that?

You buy it from Hookah-Shisha.com? Give them a call am sure they will replace it. Mines just got a plastic thing there.... I can see how I will wear it out over time but for the 100 times Ive taking it off so far it still holds up well at the mouth piece and handle meet no air leak.

You could try a Hose grommet on the mouth piece I seen people use Hose Grommet for Crownhookah glass tips.

where the mouth piece inserts into the hose check and make sure it is sealed into the hose They are glued in and if get warm the glue will come apart, So check that if its loose glue it back in. Mine does not have an o-ring for the fact its just a gromet. However I would contact where you bought it on the issue.

My nammor doesnt have a grommet, but the way the hose is created there are ribs inside the hose that for me, hold the mouth tip in. I usually push and twist my tip in and have no problem with a snug fit.

[FONT=Arial]Thanks everyone for all you input and to Cadrian for the pic’s. My hose is setup the exact same way. I’m going to contact Hookah-Shisha where I got it from to see what they say. Worse case I’ll see if I can find a grommet I can install between the hose and the moth piece to get a better fit.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Thanks again everyone[/FONT][FONT=Arial][/FONT]

oh trust me you probaby will not want to smoke with the nammor right out of the box. You will want to run some lime juice and water through it a few times and soak the tip for the fact. It has a chemical scent when there new and not pleasant to smoke from new. So clean before use.

You might wanna run the water through more then a couple of times considering ive seen videos when you first clean it... there is alot of ink/dye inside that needs to be washed out as well as just the taste of plastic

very true and for sure use some lime juice to help with it. I tend to get warm water and a sppon of lime juice and soak the tip for around 5 mins. It gets the spare dye and taste out of it.

You can also try electrical tape around the mouthpiece for now, I'm sure that'll make it a little more stable in there.
Hope it works out for you, man!

maybe you can try using a thicker grommet to make it fit more snug

=D I know that there is some gross stuff in the hose (dye, flavor, etc) from my buddies Nammor, so I'll be sure to do that.

Thanks for the advice!

It comes in today

Smoke it soon!
