The last dozen times I have smoked from my QT, no matter the water level or hose used, I seem to be getting water INSIDE the hose.
Last night after I smoked, I went to blow out the hose and about a tablespoon of water came out. When drawing I did feel the water being sucked inside the hose, plus a few drips came from the port when I cleared it once.
Am I the only one who is getting this issue?
If yes ,what if anything, have you done to try and correct it?
I have seen this before in this hookah (I believe it lead to the early retirement of one of my MYA hoses) in this hookah and have tried adjusting the water level - too much, too little, and nothing seems to help.
i personally would use a diffuser, not only will the pull be easier but it'll reduce the amount of bubbles greatly.
also i found that generally with smaller hookahs it isn't necessary to bury the downstem as much in water.
