Default Water in my hose

Hi guys,
I have this issue with my tall Syrian.
no matter how low i fill the vase with water or if i use a diffuser or not, everytime i get drops of water in my hose (it's transperant vinyl tube).
i added the diffuser and thus was able to lower the water level and reduce the strong bubbles, and yet, i still get water in the hose!.

any suggestions on how to fix that?
thanks!

Make sure your waterlevel is low enough. Also, put your hookah on the floor so its harder for water to bubble up.

It's always on the floor.
the level is very low, and if u look at the bubbles, u see that they are very small, hardly any noise, but still i get shreds of drops 'jump' to the hose...

well, a bit of water vapor is always pulled up into your mouth with the smoke. prob just vapor buildup

That is water vapor condensing in the hose from the smoke if it is vinyl hose as you say I would not worry about it.

I usually have the stem half an inch under water, so my water level is really low, how big is the base?

Yes. Since you're drawing air and smoke from a chamber that's half filled with water, some condensation is to be expected. Just hold the hose up straight once in awhile to let the moisture drain back into the base.

if your hookah is on the floor...in theory it would force the hose to be help upright more than if it was say on a table. when its on a table..the hose tends to coil up and make a valley. this is where water can collect. its the same theory of putting your arm above your heart if you cut yourself. its not bulletproof...but its just an idea.

I little water vapor in the hose is not a problem. Taking a pull and getting water in your mouth is a problem. Had that happen to me before at a hookah lounge...

What I believe he and I are questioning is that statement that it will reduce "bubbling up".

at a lower elevation, there's obviously more atmospheric pressure on the water's surface. i mean, that's negligible, but still technically true. (that's a physics joke)

its all about the intimidation factor. when the hose is straight up it looks bigger so the bubbles are scared to go near it.

Your hose is too thin. Try a larger diameter hose. Every Mya hose I have ever used on any hookah got water in it. Buy a nice Namoor and be done with it.

this helped me out. I also took the hose off and checked the base of it - some water gets trapped once in awhile there (especially if you just washed it out) so just damp it and hook it back up you're set.

I come very briefly
to this place.
I watch it move.
I watch it shake.

kumowaku yamano.
watashino sakebi.
watashino koewo.
ushano kokoku.
watashiwa sokoni.
watashiwa asobu.

Mountain with clouds.
My voice.
Home of the brave.
I'm here now,
and lost.

They say the dead will rise again,
and here they come now.
Strange animals out of the ice age.
And they stare at you. Dumbfounded.
like big Akes.

And we say: keep cool.
Maybe if we pretend this never happened, they'll all just go away.

watashiwa sokoni.
watashiwa asobu.
mewotoji.
mewotoji.
kikunowa kotori.
watashino sakebi.
watashin
wo.

Why these mountains?
Why this sky?
Long road.
This empty room.
