Default NOOOO release ball down the drain

Well I was cleaning my hookah and getting it ready for tomorrow night, had the vase nice and clean, working on the stem like usual, than I went and took apart the release valve and set it in an a small bowl of lemon juice/ baking soda, when i took it out the ball slipped out of my hand and down the drain.

How badly do you think this will effect my hookah?
Tomorrow after work I am going to run down to the our local hookah bar and see if i can pick a new one up.

That sucks. Just use a airsoft BB, or a ball of foil. both are cheap, and are less likely to rust

Use a piece of tape to cover it until you can get an airsoft BB.

The airsoft bb is a good idea, I have more than enough laying around the house

A bb gun pellet or a small rolled up piece of foil will do the job as well

Anyways to stay on topic...

Yeah the things I stated will be good alternatives for the release ball for the purge valve...but if you ever get the chance, just get a new one and I know their only 50 cents

Kidney stones might work if you are in a jam!
... as an alternative to the above I would say try the Airsoft BBs (I use those in all my hookahs, they are light and work perfectly)
If you don't have an Airsoft BB, try a very tightly wound ball of aluminum.
If purging is not a problem, then just ball up a piece of paper or use some tape for now. Ultimately go for the BBs, they work great and don't rust!
