Hookah tutorial: how to adjust the perfect water level in your hookah? 

 

The water level of your hookah is THE essential setting for a good session. Let's be clear, it is not possible to obtain a big smoke without a very precise adjustment of the water level! It is therefore really a detail that should not be taken lightly and that is why it is absolutely essential to understand how to adjust the perfect water level.

Why does a precise adjustment of my water level in my hookah base allow me to obtain a thick smoke?

  

In order to find the right water level, you don't need to light your charcoals or put tobacco in your shisha bowl. Everything happens with the hose even before preparing the head!

Adjust my water level on my hookah: the different preparation steps for a perfect water level

1/ First step: put a little water in your hookah base

Start by putting a little water in the hookah base, assemble the shisha, then fill the hookah base by adding water through the column. It is absolutely necessary that the air flow passes through the water and therefore that the diver is sufficiently immersed in the hookah base. Slowly fill the hookah base, frequently testing the draft. It is necessary at the same time that the air flow passes well in the water, but at the same time that the eddy is not too violent. Indeed, if it were to strike the ring of the hookah base where the hose connector is located, the water would run the risk of backing up in the hose.

 

If you have a hookah with an adjustable diffuser, you must also determine the draft you want (light or heavy). Indeed, the adjustment of your diffuser is an element to take into account in the adjustment of your water level. 

 

2/ Second step: suck in your hose and check your water level

Suck in the hose and observe the behavior of the eddy. This must be vigorous and be done in the middle of the hookah base in splashing the hose connector. Once you've found a water level that's right for you, consider pouring the water into a measuring cup!

 

3/ Third step: note your water level and smoke 

Once you've found a water level that's right for you, consider pouring the water into a measuring cup! This will be useful for your next sessions! All you have to do is enjoy your shisha session! 

 

Adjusting the water level is an important step in preparing a shisha in order to obtain a thick white smoke. Each setting is different depending on the hookah used and your draw. All you have to do is find your perfect water level!
