Default Hose question

Hey I'm a semi-hookah noobie so this may sound stupid but i'm hiding behind a computer monitor so its ok :P

My friend gave me this "cobra" hose for my hookah and the end is too big to fit in the hose grommet if i have the rubber thing in there...but without the rubber thing i dont get a good seal....suggestions?

I just haev a cheap hookah...its like a 19" sahara brand (dont make fun)

Thanks in advacne.

get a piece of newspaper or papertowle, dampen it, wrap around the hose end, and it should fit & seal into the hose port on the stem. Sometimes hoses that don't come with the hookahs don't fit corrently.... newspaper & papertowels are a Hookah'ers best friends at times.

You can also soak a think piece of cardboard, and use that as a grommet too .. I have done this with bowls that are a tight fit .. works well

Cheers!

like they were saying, using a damp paper towel sheet or two should do the trick.

No one makes fun of whatever kinda hookah everyone has, it just matters that you smoke it

Yeah the damp paper towel idea works great...It's funny how hookah smokers think alike in desperate times haha. and Don't worry about having a cheap hookah. I have a cheap chinese made too, but I can always get it to hit just as good as my friends KM. Keep smoking!

Putty can work too.

Sanding the hose will work and do the trick; however, sanding it down is irreversible, so it's generally avoided. There's nothing wrong with it, but sanding it down will take something away, which you can't put back. Adding something on is easily reversible, so if the situation changes, the hose is still in original condition.

You don't have to hide behind your computer dude you can ask everything in here... mmm I'll suggest to use some newspaper or just a napkin. Try to cut it well so it can fit better or try to do it with a wet newspaper piece (just a little bit wet) so it can adjust its shape and then hardens for an after use. Good luck!

The newspaper is an interesting idea actually ...

Imo, electric tape works best for hose and vase grommets since paper towel rip sometimes.

I would use newspaper. Newspaper works well. I have used it in similir applications through my whole entire life. It is cheap and it holds up exceptionally well, for the price that I paid for it.
