Default silicone diffuser

I recently bought a silicone diffuser for a water pipe. The difference in noise is really great. The effect of cooling air through water (more bubbles) is also better for me.

On my video you can hear the difference in noise:

1. High water level
2. Low water level
3. Low water level + Aladin silicone diffuser

The water pipe used in diffuser testing was Kaya Q7.

Yeah got some of these too. Really do quiet down my hookahs. Easy to clean and slip on and off downstem. Only thing I noticed was they restrict the draw a little, so I cut some extra holes in them. Only small holes, still work well and opens up the draw. Really good.

One small disadvantage is there. Silicone material is difficult to remove odors.

I tried to soak the silicone diffuser for 10 minutes into acetic acid. It did not help. The diffuser still smells according to the last smoked tobacco. Perhaps the diffuser should be soaked in vinegar for at least 2 hours to finally lose all unwanted odors. I have not tried it yet. It does not really hurt me . However, this is a small disadvantage - smells in silicone.

Fill your sink with waRm soapy water, add 1/2 cup of baking soda. The warm soapy water cleans while the baking soda absorbs odors.

Swish the diffuser around in the water for a few minutes and scrub it with a wash cloth. Allow it to air dry, then sprinkle it with baking soda and let it sit for an hour or two. Rinse with warm water again and Voi loi. That should solve your silicon odor issues.
