Everytime i give it some on the hi hat i.e. fast hi hat playing, the pedal eventually looses all its tension and goes to the floor. I have tried everything to fix it, can it be fixed or is it goosed? If its goosed what is the best stand you can buy?
If that is so and you don't need to tare it down (I don't) just try some blue loc-tite on whatever part is coming loose. The blue is removable and will not permanently secure the piece. You say you have tried everything to fix it already???? maybe it is toast??
Welcome to Drummerworld. Give us more info. Brand/model of hi-hat. Yes, a picture would be nice. In fixing it, what do you do? Tighten something? Re-adjust something? Leave the room, burn some incense and the hi-hat heals itself? More info.
