Default My base broke!

I was cleaning it like I normally do, it wasn't too cold, it wasn't too hot. It was about the normal temperature as I've cleaned it before and the bottom of the base just dropped out. Man it's depressing. I just got my shipment in to smoke. Hopefully I might be able to super glue the bottom back on. Just a reminder to everyone, handle with care.

I broke a base once at a hookah lounge that over charges and had crappy service, and they asked for 50 compensation for a base, and i go to them stick it where the sun don't shine and il give you the money and then walked away

It' wasn't even my fault it was on the table and the table must have moved and knocked it over, and bye bye base

Thanks all, I just went out and got a high strength waterproof glass epoxy. It'll hopefully do the trick. Just be super careful in cleaning your Hookah base. Don't use hot water at all. It was a Mya Econo-Gelato. Which is sort of hard to find a replacement base for I suppose, I guess it'd use the Bambino base, since it resembles the Bambino the most.

Yea, i think you can try a MYA Bambino base, also a QT..
Because i think every MYA hookah got the same diameter for their base...

I clean my hookah with cold water and "Kukidents"/Denture cleaner.

Well the Glass Epoxy seemed to work. It's much different from it used to be, but it'll work I think. Lesson learned about cleaning your hookah. I'll definitely probably be Replacing it. I'll probably give you a call sometime this week John.

One of my bases broke some time ago... One day i found a crack on it, maybe from hot/cold water or in transportation and i was super protective when i used it... Next day, i prepared all about the session, had the coal ready and the hookah complete on the kitchen table and i took the hookah to put it on floor. I was extra protective, i just touched the hookah on the floor and it was ok.. 2 second later i saw i big piece of glass falling out and the water running on the floor It was my fourth broken base in a month, although the other 3 werent my fault... one of the bases was part of a Syrian hookah my parents bought from Syria 15 years ago and it was sitting in the sofa for all those years without knowing something, only finding out about it one month before the base broke! I was so angry that i took the stem and throw it away and left it there(we were in a trip mountain for 3 days). After we went back from the trip i realised what i had done!
