Default What kind of glue should I use to cover the cracks on my hookah stem.

Hey, I have a lot of cracks on the stem of my hookah and it's been affecting the smoking experience. I was told to use aquarium glue to fix it, but I just wanted to make sure if that was correct and/or if there is something else I should be using. Thanks.....

If you have cracks on the down stem then you lose alot of the vacuum pressure. I would try to solder it first using plumbing type solder (not electrical) since it does not contain lead. If thats not an option for you then use someting called J.B Weld. Its an epoxy that comes in 2 seperate tubes and when combined becomes very hard. You will find it in Home depot or similar stores.

JB Weld would work good if you can get it to seal off the air. But if there are that many I would suggest a better alternative and just replace the stem or the entire rig if possible.

If the stem is salvageable use jb weld, I've used it on a number of generic egyptians for my friends, they smoke like new after the repair, plus it's cheaper.

I would say gorilla glue, I'v had good luck with that in the past for other projects but nothing quite like this.
