Default Prometheus Hookah Valve Restriction

Hey guys,

So I have the original large stem Prometheus hookah. Recently I realized the restriction increased alot. Upon opening the valve where the pipe goes. I realized there is a black plastic ring which is partially covering the hole where the air is suppose to come out from causing the restriction. Move it around improved the restriction but no matter what I try the only way to fit it in there is for it to partially covert the hole like it doesnt fit in as a circle but one side of the circle gets squeezed. If I completely remove it .. it starts to feel just like a starbuzz hookah .. no restriction (this might also be because I been smoking a super restricted hookah for the last week lol).

What is the original intention? Was I suppose to remove this ring from the start?

Thanks for help!

I think you're talking about the built in hose grommet?

Ah. Thats not a grommet. Thats an o ring. Its intended to go on the bottom of the port where it screws in to the heart to provide a seal. Its mishapen. Take it off and wrap the threads on the bottom of the port with teflon (" plumbers") tape and screw it back in and you'll be golden.

Thank you for the help! I didn't use the tape atleast yet but by properly adjusting it back in the extreme restriction is gone. It had been slowly getting worse so I didn't realize until it got unbearable today. Haha I been killing my throat pulling hard all this time. The good days are back!
