Re: Problem with my small hookah
half a centimeter?? The down stem should be in about an inch or half an inch into the water. The water is not your problem anyway. I think your rig is not tightly sealed. You're using foil as a grommet for the bowl and I don't know how you sealed the stem into the base but I can't see a grommet on that either. I also don't see a grommet on your hose. One of those three or all of those three are not tightly sealed thus you're breathing in air. Your hookah can smoke like a champion even with that small bowl but I think you're having a sealing issue.
