Default valve ideas?

Hi I have a four hose stem on my hookah, I bought it at a local shop so I dont know the brand or anything really, but it is AMAZING! until someone was messing around and somehow got his valve to stay open and he was blowing into it and blowing smoke out of the rest of the hoses, he didnt do anything like take off the valve and mess with it he just did it some how. and ever since then one of the BB's in one of my valves wont close I thoughly cleaned the BB and the removable part of the valve. and it closed like twice but after that it just stopped closing again. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you!!

Either replace the bb with a plastic one or try applying some vegetable oil on to the one you have.

i make my own valves by just putting an eraser into one of the plastic hose tips and then poking a thumbtack through the bigger end to stop the eraser from getting blown out of the tip. put the small end into the hole in the stem and enjoy

I use vegetable oil on the ball bearings in my hookahs but I've never heard of the eraser/thumbtack method before. Very interesting . . . I love ingenuity. Smoke happy.
