Default Bowl/Grommet problem, please help!

I just bought my first hookah a couple days ago and while I was cleaning it the bowl came off of the grommet and I can't get it back on...it just slides back off and the seal is far from airtight. I'm relatively new to this and don't know what to do....

I noticed you mention this happened after cleaning. I assume you used water to clean the bowl, stem and grommet, or at least to clean the grommet. I've noticed that, depending on the bowl, a wet grommet will sometimes let the bowl slide off or a wet grommet will slide off the stem. I always make sure to use a dry grommet and make sure the stem and bowl are dry.

Dee has a great point I have noticed this also. When washing let all parts dry before putting it back together. Rubber seals best when dry.

Glad it worked out for you.

Yeah, the wet grommet problem I noticed most with my Mya QT. If the grommet is wet the bowl won't settle on at all. In fact, it slips and tips badly. Smoke happy.
