Hey fellas and ladies, I'm going to order a new set of hose grommets and another hose plug or two (just as backups, because I lose EVERYTHING). If I ordered my hookah from SS, do I have to get the grommet set from SS? Or is it pretty much a standard size across vendors?

Thanks!

Pick up bowl grommets. They melt quickly >.<

I'd think they are pretty universal... wait for more replies though, I'm not too sure. Edited by Allia22

Yep, I ordered a set from SS, that melted within about 2 sessions, then I've been using the one that came on My Little Friend. Still going, but it's getting kinda... yeah.

I have a feeling she is using a QT? where the bowl grommet sits on the tray? just keep the coals in a coal bucket and not on the tray then you shouldn't be melting them.

your doing something wrong if those grommets are melting. Ive had the same bowl grommet for nearly 2 years now. Definently something wrong- start a thread and post pictures of your melting grommets, that way we can solve this problem.

for the QT. You need to cut the tip off the grommet. Might be why you are melting them, but I am still stumped on that one. I have had the same grommet set for over 2 years now without replacing or melting them. Just cut down the QT grommet so it sits flush with the stem. We did 3 sessions with it in a row with out any issues.

its a german website, and i dont know if it is going to be cost effective for you..but they are very good and i would recommend using them.


Those are awesome. I got some of those when I got my Stargate, for whatever reason... Maybe Taqseem can hook you up? Anyway, they are really thick, but spongy. The grommets I have now are thin and hard, and I keep breaking bowls when I put them on the stem. I can't imagine what it would take to melt one though. Besides TOO MUCH HEAT. Unless they are really, really, really crappy grommets. I think we need pics.

You can use a piece of paper towel about the size of a strip of paper about three inches wide and four inches long. You can fold it long ways and wrap it around the stem where you place the bowl. And also use it to wrap it around the tip of your hose beofe you place it in your hookah. I will tkae some pic.to show you how. This way is real nice way of snmokeing. The juice doe not run down your hookah and because its absorbent it makes a better conection and better smokeing for you.

I got a red grommet that came with my first hookah - pathetic, the bowl wobbled all over the place and with the slightest push threatened to topple off. I lost that one after my second session, and in its absence started wrapping foil around the outside bottom of the bowl and that worked really well as far as steadying it went. No way to figure out how well it went with keeping things airtight, as I'd do that as a last step after putting the foil over the bowl as a screen. Ordered a grommet set from SS. Hooray, had grommets for my hoses and bowl. NO, it melted and split (I'll put up pics later when I'm less lazy). Got my $15 Little Friend and had success from that grommet for a while, but now it's starting to get misshapen and it doesn't keep my bowl steady at all anymore so I'm back to wrapping foil. I wouldn't doubt I use too much heat. I use 2 40mm coals (ran out of 3K and am using 3 Eagles from the local porn/head shop... makes everything taste salty XP) simultaneously.

ive done this before as well, its very effective, cause you get a really nice custom fit and as he said all the juices get trapped in the paper.
