Default Got my order today....

So I placed an order for a KM and here are some pics to show everything im a little disapointed and a little confused

broken egyptian bowl
[img]http://img710.imageshack.us/i/brokenbowl.jpg/[/img]


other pieces still in bag it came in


base that has paint worn off around the lip



top of the KM where it looks like there was some rust...


can someone explain these bottom holes? Ive never seen them before


heres the hook though all put together with a funnel bowl


Mostly Im upset about the bowl beign destroyed and the stem looking like there might be some rust. The picture quality isnt very good since I used my phone but its the only working camera I have right now

Also when I was looking in the stema dn started to clean it a little I noticed a ton of black powerdy stuff coming out of it and when I washed the hose, it came out looking like blue food coloring(the hose has a blue tip), idk if thats normal or not either so I washed it a few times and it still looking pretty blue

Any info is appreciated

EDIT: Im getting a red X on all pics let me know if anyone can see them

We aim to please!
It looks like all your pic addys had a "/" after the .jpg. I think that's what was messing you up. (And of course that kinda sh*t neeeeever happens to me! )

Sounds like that vendor's on the ball. Who is it?

Other than the bowl, everything looks pretty much typical from the KM's I've received... though as far as you washing out your hose goes.... KM hoses arent really washable and washing them out will ruin them =/ the holes on the bottom are for purging and the rust that youre seeing is probably just some welding and storage dirt, just give it a good wash and itll be a purdy hookah

Sad to hear about the original receipt problems. But it's really a plus that the vendor contacted you about it and was not only willing but forthright about wanting to correct the problem. That deserves a big kudos for him/her. Glad to hear that it sounds like the problem is being resolved with minimal effort on your part. Smoke happy.

Ya I'm impressed About how it's been handled so far. And yes it was through hookahstore which I believe is alvin. And for the one who asked it's a KM heart of lion 2 hose.

I might be mistaken but aren't the holes in the hookah supposed to be there? I thought they were there so that the smoke could get to the hose, but I could be completely wrong since I have never owned on of these hookahs! Hope everything works out!

The only pics I've taken are the ones ulglybiker helped me post up. But I can post a pic when I get done with work later just to make sure I do have it set up right cuz I was testingit last night and I think I might of had a leak cuz I was still pulling air even with the stem plugged and the other hose was also plugged too.
