Default O NO!! HELP!

So last night i was cleaning up my hookah when i was trying to take off the hose ports to my Egyptian hookah and the little thing that holds the ball bearing teared a little away from the stem! I know that the leakage from that can not be good. Am i supposed to sodder (dont know if i spelt that right) that thing back on? or can i use crazy glue? HELP!

If you aren't a welding type of guy, you can get JB weld or some other type of epoxy putty made for metal. Auto parts stor or auto department in Wal mart would be a good bet. Follow the package instructions and you should be fine. I think most of those take 24 hours to fully cure, so no smoking for a day.

Same thing happened to my tiny pumpkin hookah before I got serious about smoking. I went to home depot told the guy what happened and how it went to a hookah, I brought it inside homedepot and he picked up the jb weld for me. If I remember correctly it had a blue cap hahah good luck buddy!

Yup I agree with Dunk. ugh I wish I bought epoxy instead of havgin my dad trying to use a blow torch and use this metal line to glue the purge valve back together. It was a total bad idea because I guess there were burnt particles inside the heart so now it tastes like burning metal everytime I tried to smoke out of that 22" egyptian Sad because I really loved that hookah.

jb weld or an epoxy, just check it and or get the MSDS of it and see if it will off gas at all after a short period of time (off gassing being the release of chemicals in to the air which is not a good thing if you are going to be breathing it in all the time). i would try to find something that is "food safe"

if youve never soldered before i wouldnt suggest doing it now on such a delicate project, you could always find a jeweler or a metal worker that knows what a hookah is that could help you

Nah I meant that the metal INSIDE the stem was burnt to a crisp like the outside. The only way I'd get it out is if I used those sponge things (forgot what their called, but their used to get really hard to get out residue in dishes and stuff). Hah but there is no way to get into the heart of that stem so I can't eally do anything. I tried doing everything to clean it out, nothing

Just go epoxy all the way and no soldering
