Yes, I did watch your video =D It was the easiest one to follow along with. Most of the other tutorials I found just confused me, because they were giving instructions as if they were talking to seasoned smokers and not a beginner such as myself XD
Glad the video helped ya

OK, I would be willing to bet that you may not have a ball in the relief valve. and that is where your leak is.

Do you have a MYA hookah? if so, tap your relief valve when you are smoking. The ball may not be seated properly?

An upgrade you can do, if you find that you don't have a ball in your relief valve. Get a plastic BB. If you can't get a plastic BB. roll up a piece of aluminum foil REALLY TIGHT and a perfect little ball. That will work too.

When you suck on the hose, there should be a lot of suction! as in no leaks!

Please let us know!? .. Cheers!
