Default Bowl problems :(

So i have a 26'' Egyptian Sphinx 1 hose hookah. My step brother broke the bowl for my hookah a while back, and ever since I haven't been able to find a fitting bowl. I tried the local smoke shop, bowl is too big. I just ordered from one from Nazar hookah (clay bowl) and its too small and It fell over yesterday in my bedroom when i lifted it because it didn't fit properly, so now i have a bunch of black spots in my carpet :/ . Does anyone know where I can find a bowl online that would fit my hookah. Maybe someone has had this happen before?

Try to get one from the same place you got your hookah from. Another issue could be the bowl grommet. If it is warped it can prevent a good fit. Grommets are cheap, so maybe try replacing that. If that fails and you are unable to find a bowl that fits, you might want to try to use something like aluminum foil to make the bowl fit. Just wrap it around the top of your stem to act as a form fitting grommet.

where did you get the hookah? Bowls should be just about universal.

Its probably a number of issues. I got the hookah from hookah-shisha.com. maybe ill try getting one from there. When i use the grommet for the old bowl from a local retailer, the bowl is too big, so i do use aluminum foil to make a custom fit. It works, its just a pain in the ass to do everytime. As for the new bowl being too small i could try to find a thinner grommet for the top. Idk lol.

Maybe try removing the grommet and using damp papertowels as a grommet. Only a few bowls are too small for my hookahs - the larger is easy, use damp newspaper or thin cardboard as a grommet.

Damp paper towel in place of the grommet for the small bowls. On top of the grommet for the larger ones.

Take a measurement of the circumference of the bottom and top of the junction between hookah and bowl (where you place your grommet) then consult with an employee of your chosen website and see if they can compare that to the opening on the bottom of the bowl you are interested in.

any bowl should be able to fit just about any hookah.
It's the grommet that needs to be modified somehow.
Like samniamii said, just use some wet cardboard or something to make a grommet.

Have you thought about upgrading? The Sahara Vortex is a great value. If you order it, get a couple extra grommets. From my experience, it is a bit larger than my egyptian bowls and requires some shimming
