    Should be ok. Tubing isn’t too expensive. Check that the knob doesn’t wobble and the ceramic heating element extends close to the top of the heater cover.

    Before you spring for new glass break out your 18.8mm male to male adapter, a screen and a piece of tubing.

    It is an old mod but it is cheap and it works.

    If the hack works for you you might look into the 7th Floor mod kits by DDave Mods. The prices are comparable to factory replacement parts and there are some significant advantages, IMO. Good Luck

    they're all cool. I ask because the setup @howie105 suggests works with the ground glass and not the others. you should be in good shape.

    I use a Heater cover from the life saber, then the ground glass whip that typlcally uses the SSV GG Heater cover, If you put the life saber HC on the SSV the whip sits perfectly in there and I put the DDave 18MM screen at the end of my GG whip and the flower goes in there i give it a little very light pack basically so it dose not fall out while inverted, but i have had all of the SSV heater cover /Whip combos and this way hits the aboulute best and is the most convient especially if you like to take bong rips with it

    if you get one of the DDave 18mm screens it should fit right on the end of the whip perfectly and gets you a little closer to the heater

    Has anyone ever tried installing a flat screen in the gg wand rather than a domed one?.....Hey Guy. I nested an E- Nano basket screen inside a basket screen and got a fairly flat surface and then nested those inside a third basket screen (depth adjustment). It worked but it took too much fiddling so I went with the DDave Mods because they work as well without the hassle.

    For me it's also unbelievable! It's the best "way" and the most unreal tastes I've found since I began about 25yrs ago.
    Only wish I had known SSV was so good sooner!!
    It makes combustion or tobacco sooo fricken bad to even be around, taste or smell.

    The other night, after getting three "things" I was trying one of them in the SSV, and my head shot up and said pineapple!
    I'm normally not the best with putting a name to a taste so quickly.
    Besides maybe liqorice, berry or citrus types?
    I always can't wait to find the sweet spot for this control knob with anything different I get, it must be a dream with one of these in a modern place!:tup:

    Brand new, my element had a tiny mark maybe from installation, but it was just like a wax or paint type mark I would call it, from touching the surrounding parts, the heater cover, or a screwdriver handle.
    An iso wipe didn't fully remove it, and it even lit up brighter orange like some of these pics.
    But my own little experience in ceramic elements said it would be OK after a burn off, and over time it has disappeared.

    Can't say what your's is but just saying, a straight through crack is not the only thing that might cause an extra bright glow in one area at some point.
    Give it a wipe, run it some more weeks and see if it remains stable?
    Cheap DIY element replacement was being fully discussed recently in the LSV thread, and most of it applies to this model too.:nod:

    It's def a crack I can run my finger nail in it. I must have done something. I'll have to check the diy, or I can send mine in like hour away from to there home base for 25 box to fix it? I believe. Def a flavor monster

    Pure as the mountain breeze!
    Might be a good idea for them to give your unit the all clear and see it in person as you're so close.
    Give you peace of mind too, and years more service!

    Do you use it with or without water? Just now I tried starting without, and switched to water halfway through adding some more and stirring.
    Nice...... either way!

    I've only been using it with water. It's been amazing. I need to try it dry

    Yeah I got the idea to turn it down a bit for when you're hitting it dry, make it more low end tasty than possibly drying.
    Plus the fact some heat actually makes it all the way up the whip too!
    (Shows how little of flavor or anything gets lost in the large bore whip?)
    But with water you can sure blast it alright wow!

    I'd love to test the flavor. But anyways, got time to post video of how possibly dense the hits can get?

    Yeah and you can see why my rod may have cracked. :( there are so many people selling ssvs out here. Found someone selling a dbv and ssv brand new for 90 bux for both. I'm gonna grab them :)

    Has performance decreased since crack in your heating rod? $25 to fix isn't bad considering you paid $50.

    $75 still seems like a steal. Lol

    Do you use this with whip?

    Or are there any all glass air path compatible with this?

    How much can bowl hold? And whats your favorite amount/size load to use with this?

    Working flawlessly :) @MileHighHuman i am using a 18mm gong like above. Can do eq basket or load up the gong. I like loading up the gong for that huge rip. Micro dosing is awesome too, one hit extractions. I feel that the ssv is smoother than my go and GS
