Lost My Ball Bearing

Recommended Posts

Ok I have a 2 hose hookah, and while cleaning it I managed to lose one of the ball bearing completely. So where can I get a new one, and is there a standard ball size for every hookah, or is it different for each one? I'm assuming I can just go to a hardware store like home depot and find one, but I can't say for sure.

hmmm, either check the hardware store or maybe a BB would work. I am unsure what size the bearing is though.

I replaced mine in both my mya and chinese nour with a 1/4" from my local Hardware store.

I'm gonna have to say put in an airsoft BB. I tried this once after losing a ball bearing, and have since replaced the ball bearings in all my hookahs with airsoft BBs. They're the perfect size and never gum up or stick. And you won't even notice them when clearing your hookah.


TYLER

Yeah, hardware store is the way to go. A friend of mine came into my store with his hookah and matched up the proper ball by process of elimination.

Lost my balls and bearings in a freak skiing accident. Now I'm just a neutered lunatic who gets lost easily in shopping centres laugh.gif

it is essential for the blow off valve to work. put it back where you found it. Your hookah isn't going to hit without it either

wtf?!?


anyways- I used air soft bb's before too. They work and also the belly ring thing, did that too. I hate it when my friends would blow through the hoses sending the ball bearing flying when i was trying to purge the smoke. ARGHHHHHHHH
