Default Got my first hookah

I bought it off of a friend and the bowl really doesn't sit well. My question is are all replacement bowls one size fits all?

I have a bowl that doesn't fit the grommet, so I use paper towel as a seal. It's thinner, and works well for most shisha.

MOST bowls will fit with the exception of syrian (?) style bowl, which is a male bowl opposed to the traditional female bowl+male stem.

In short, yes, 99% of replacement bowls will fit, the grommet may be too large or too small depending on what bowl you use though.

Not exactly. Usually you can fix that problem by getting a different rubber piece for your bowl to sit on. But different bowls will be different sizes if that makes sense?

Yeah, I use paper towel or black electrical tape to get things snugly fit

If you are lucky enough to have a smoke shop that sells bowls near you then just take your hookah and try to fit the bowl you want to your pipe. I've done this before and it guarantees you'll be happy with the fit.

I think the bowl is completely missing the rubber fitting used to securely attach it to stem. And the glass bottom says Mya Bohemia

Well according to this webpage (http://www.hookahcompany.com/egyptia..._4704_prd1.htm) the bowl is Egyptian style. The hookah itself is (i assume from what it says on the base) is Mya. On hookah-shisha there are 3 different types of bowl grommets, Egyptian, Mya, and Mod. Which one do I buy, Egyptian or Mya?

First off, congrats on your first hookah! Good to hear of another person that has been corrupted. :P If you don't know the brand of your hookah or where the friend got it from, it may be a little tricky finding the right size grommet. If all else fails, you can always resort to using fruit bowls. They're cheap and don't require cleaning and add flavor to your shisha! Look up some videos on how to make apple bowls (the most common fruit bowl). THAT is a guaranteed one size fits all.

There is nothing wrong with your bowl it will work just fine. I can tell by looking at it that it is an egyptian bowl. The grommets are real cheap I saw order both of them and just experiment. If you are going to make an online order make sure to look at out vendor discount codes & make an order worth the shipping. If I were you my next purchase would be a nice new hose and maybe a diffuser. Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions.
