Default Rusting

I haven't owned a hookah long enough to know what the signs of rust are. Can anyone clear this up for me? What are some precautions and fixes for rust. etc. etc.

you will start to see buildup inside your hookah. prevent rust by cleaning it properly, and throughly drying it out, making sure there is no excess water inside your rig

I agree with everyone else. BTW, lemon juice and rubbing alcohol will make the stale smells and tastes go away from previous bowls.

To dry off, get some towels. et it air dry for a lil while and you will be okay.

Don't use rubbing alcohol on metal, your just asking for corrosion.

What about using rubbing alcohol on a brass stem? I've found that rubbing alcohol takes away any lingering smell very efficiently. I've used it on my Mya, but I'm wondering if I can use it on my full brass Syrian as well?

Any metal (aluminum is quite resistant) ; rubbing alcohol, iso alcohol, and any others like it will accelerate corrosion.
