Absolutely love it! Red Mya Diva + Pink Tonic Washable Hose + Red Vortex Bowl =)
  2. Anyone know what type of metal/material the Mya Bambino is made of? I have a Mya QT and my friend has the Bambino. He swears his is lasting longer than mine since he claims it is made out of cast iron. According to hookah-shsina.com, both the Mya QT and the Mya Bambino are made of stainless steel, but in recent events and research I have found the Mya QT is actually nickel-plated brass with a chrome finish on the exterior. Any idea on the metals used in the Mya Bambino??
  3. The below picture is the best shot of how there is a little bit of green in the area where the brass is exposed. Is this something to be concerned about? [img]http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/s720x720/644484_3773750097707_467520164_n.jpg[/img]
  4. It is possible that the hard water issue may be an accelerant. My neighborhood recently underwent construction to put in sewer pipes. For about a month we had very heavily chlorinated/hard water in an attempt to flush out the pipe before sewer connections were made (so the county claimed, but I have other suspicions). I remember I tried to avoid using the water, but maybe I did use it once or twice to clean out my hookah. If in that event, then I may have caused some corrosion there. Brass contians copper elements, which when exposed to hard-water ingredients like sulfites, chlorine, carbonate
  5. I hardly ever leave the water in the base for long periods. I think I've done that maybe twice in my life. There probably is some water left in the parts when I put it back in the bag since its my portable hookah. Its kind of impossible to fully dry it out, unless I need to start carrying around a blow-drier with me haha. But I do try to get as much water out as possible before I put it back in the bag. And yes, I am 100% sure it is the regular Mya QT. My first hookah was an Econo Mya, and I will never make that mistake again. Maybe I am just mistaking the chrome plating coming off and sho
  6. Yeah the my first hookah was the Econo Mya and I wasn't aware of quality and all that stuff. So after research and experience I wasn't surprised when I needed a new one. But the Mya QT is top-rated and made from better materials as you said, so I was surprised as well. I did look at the sites you mentioned, and did find some brass hookahs. However, all of the ones I've seen are all the big 30" and up hookahs, and I need a portable one to take places. I still live at home with anti-hookah parents, and me and my friends like going places with it, its kinda our hang-out thing. So
  7. Hi everyone. I have a general question/topic about what the best way is to prevent hookah corrosion. I have had both a Mya Econo Gelato and a Mya QT, both of which will last me about a year and then start to corrode. The stem starts to look rusty and makes me concerned, since I don't want to be inhaling rust. I take my hookah with me everwhere and portability is key for me. I usually rinse all my hookah parts with water after every use, and about once a week I clean it with warm water and a little lemon juice. I use my hookah daily and have no complaints on quality other than the corrosion
