Loctite Super glue for hookah repair?

Has anyone used loctite super glue for hookah stem repair? If so, is it safe? Also, I'm just getting into hookahs and I have yet to buy one that hasn't had a leak in the stem. I've bought 2 Khalil mamoons, 2 myas, 1 Nammor, 1 al fakher and every one had a leak. Is this nomral?

That is not normal at all. I've never had a stem leak. It's happened after a few years of use but never right off the bat. And loctite, is it soluble at all? You need something that is completely safe after it's dried to breathe air that comes in contact with and also shouldn't be soluble.

The loctite I used is not water soluble and made to glue dishes but not oven or microwave safe.

Well, if it's low enough in the stem to not get heated up to high temps (basically if it's at least a bit away from the bowl) so it won't get hot, then I reckon anything that's good for dishes should be ok. However I don't know how well it adheses to metal, so I guess just wait and see, then report back if it works after a few days! I reckon it should though.
