Re: leaving hookah set up
i leave mine set up for a couple of days at a time. i really cant tell a difference unless the water has be changed to a dark red because of the juices. then i clean it. i usually do a good cleaning once a week. as far as flavor messhing with the juices in the stem and base well i can never tell the difference. the only flavor i taste is the one im smoking at the time. as far as the bowl goes i usually clean after every session. cleaning all of my hookah stuff in general is really hard to do because i dont have running water at my house. so its hard to get a rally good clean. i do the best i can with what i have.
