Default HELP! My hookah is sick!!!

Hi guys, I just finished cleaning all 4 of my hookahs. My favourite hookah I own, the 26" Nour Syrian model A from ******* Hookah is very sick. He is suffering from a bit of rust in the stem. Is there any way to save him? HELP ME PLEASE!!!

Brass doesn't rust, it corrodes. Go buy some Wrights brass polish and go to town. Just a warning though, it will come out black as night.

It would be best to also purchase a shotgun cleaning rod. Apply the Wrights to a folded piece of paper towel (attached to the cleaning rod).

Wrights is water soluble, so it will clean out really easy.

I use this occasionally to polish my brass trombone slide.

~*~PROBLEM SOLVED~*~

I didn't have Wright's but I did have another brass cleaner similar to it. I took it to town on that bad boy, couldn't let him go. I cleaned the smacks out of that thing and the water went from reddish, to black, to green even...then afterwards I broke out the baking soda and lemon juice and did the same thing until that pipe was clear as glass...then the job wasn't finished there. I then applied a piece of paper towel to dry out the stem and BADA BING!!! Problem Solved!!!

Thank you for your reply Wharbone, you are always very helpful and informative mate

I should probably give my KM Amer a really good cleaning, since the inner stem is brass. I may try this water soluble brass cleaner

Well, my Syrian should be sitting in my apartment's lease office waiting for me to pick it up. So now would be the time to think about rust/corrosion prevention. Is there anything I can do on a normal basis to minimize the chances?

lol being a t-bone player too, the first thing i thought of was Brass-o... but i thought again and said... wait a tic, that'll do the opposite. I didn't know that POLISH would help with the corrosion... good to know cause i have a ton of brass polish as well haha. thx wharbone
