Default My Grommet

Ok so i was smoking shisha yesterday and i noticed it wasn't pulling as well as usual. Then i noticed that my grommet was bent out of shape and realised that it wasn't an air tight fit anymore... So my question is: Is there any way i can somehow get a quick fix ? I thought about heating up my grommet and then maybe molding it back into shape but dont wanna risk losing it completely...or is it already too late? I know i can buy one online but i wanna smoke now!

I would say to use electric and duct tape around your vase, put the electric on first, then the duct tape. That way when u take off the duct tape, it wont leave that gross ass residue... this is what i have done before, and even for my friends uhh, unspeakable items. =]]

Oh dang haha. My aim name is Korn Rocker 187, so i was just wonderign haha =]]

Well b/c it wouldnt leave as bad as a residue as the duct tape would, but yeah you could just go with duct tape. Just keep testing and applying until there is no leak.

I recommend not doing it while it is packed and lit. Just do dry runs so you can pull the stem out and apply more tape
