Default Need Help A.S.A.P.!!!!!!!!

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]Hello Hookah Pro Community,[/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino Linotype]PakistaniMasty here, I have a big problem and I need help fast like before Thursday. So I bought this stupid Hookah that I was so disapointed in I ll never buy from Sahara Smoke again theyre Hookahs suck! I was washing it the other day and I took it apart I unscrewed the release valve and took out the ball and I was like ok I can't forget this or i'm screwed and guess what I forgot about it and can not find it anywhere and I dont know what to do I don't even know where to buy it from obviously I do't have enought time to order another one from the internet so if anyone knows what I could do or where I could buy another one from PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP it's honestly an emergency I would really appreciate it thank you[/FONT]

Roll one out of foil.

Or use an airsoft BB. 6mm size. I recommend .20g because they are heavier. Ultr-grade are very smooth so they work best.

Any hard-ware store should have ball-bearings.

I replace all my steel bearings with the airsoft BBs. Cheap, effective and if it falls down the drain it's no loss.

All quick advice and great advice! I use air soft BBs for my ball bearing. If you lose one, you can easily replace it .. hope that helps!??

Or as zen said, you can roll up a piece of aluminum foil and use that ...

Most of the time you can use a normal "pellet gun" BB as well.

But.... another vote for Airsoft ammo here.

If my hookah doesn't have a ball bearing setup, can I just put one in there, maybe in the grommet and have it work similarly?

Bust open one of those yo-yo's with the ball bearing in it, you will end up with like 3 extra ones too.

the ball bearing set up only works under special conditions on the hookah, and really is only usefull on the release valve.

I wasn't sure, but figured I'd ask. I'm definitely not the most mechanically inclined and I'm still new to hookah in general. Thanks for the info, my dumbass would have went out and bought some BBs just to try!
