Default Inhaling water?

Hey all, a friend just bought me a Egyptian hookah. She gave me a crash course on how to set it up. While smoking it yesterday with her, we were getting what felt like water through the tube. Couldn't figure it out. I just smoked it again and still getting water droplets though. I've varied the amounts of water in the base but didn't seem to make a difference. Seems like the water is just getting though the stem and into the tube.

The water should be about an inch above the bottom of the downstem. Shouldn't be a problem with most decent sized rigs.

If I spelled anything incorrectly, blame the dozen beers.

Also unless you have a washable hose, then you're probably going to want to get rid of the hoses if water has been sitting in them.

Make sure the water levels are right, but make sure no one is trying to take a drink outta the hookah instead of smoke it lol.

Be sure the vase isn't over-filled like most people have said already, and a lot of times you'll get water vapor in the hose. It's nothing to really worry about if you have a washable hose. Just be sure to blow out your hose before and after you smoke.

U might wanna use a diffuser. Its placed on the end of the downstem and makes the bubbles smaller so maybe that way water wont get up ur stem and into ur hose.
Happy new year.

As bizarre as it might sounds, your water wasn't warm was it? If your water was warm and the rig was small enough, the smoke could be vaporizing some of the water and creating steam.

Unlikely, but possible.
