Default Rusty water leaking from stem....?

first i wanted to say hello im a newb and i have learned quite a bit off this Forum so thank you....

I have a new MZ HORAS 32 that i have had for a few weeks and when i clean it out i find im getting rusty water. i shake the stem and it slowly comes out. i can put the stem (not base) up to my ear and shake it a little and hear water in it. it comes out where the hose is attached and where the hole is on the bottom next to down stem. i checked to see if there is air leaks and noneat all. weird? normal?

any info appreciated thanks!

i would try washing it really well with lemon juice and baking soda, rinse it really well then try to dry it as well as you can and use a hair drier or something and see if that helps

was it like that since you got it? if so it may just be the junk that is normally in the rigs when they come but if it is still bad i would call who ever you got it from and complain

If your using an Egyptian bowl like me then its probably just juice...my KM collects a fair amount of juice; but it definitely should not rust. Hmmm...I wonder why you hear water inside when you shake it though, there must me a hole in the welding somewhere.

yeah i am using a Egyptian bowl. yeah i can shake the stem and hear water splashing around inside. takes me a few minutes of shaking the stem sideways to get most of the water to come out. I tried checking for air leaks seams pretty solid.

i have the same rig and i think i know what you are talking about, i just got rid of it the last time i cleaned but if u wash ur stem, try taking ur BB out and opening ur purge valve, i found a lot of rust & lime build up in there. i then used a lil CLR on my brush and cleaned my stem like usual and it got all that stuff out, i had to get a smaller brush and do the same at the purge opening

im thinking hookah juice still, and the way to fix that is as mentioned, just clean it out w/ juice and baking soda, when it stops coming out colored, dry it.
