Default MYA shisha not pumping

Hey guys,

Got a MYA shisha and its not pumping well at all. You have to breath in very hard to get a decent amount of smoke. But when you take the head out, its normal, when its on its makes it very difficult. Any ideas?

thanks

- More holes in the foil. or bigger ones.

- Pack the tobacco lighter, fluffier.

Sounds like you are over packing the bowl.

yeah sounds like overpacking..but also try in a simmilar way that you make holes in you foil with a toothpick make four holes in you shish which should help air flow

this kinda goes along with packing lighter, but also check to see if any stems or chunks of shisha are directly over the hole. Just having one or two of these covered can drastically make it harder to pull

Either try packing it lighter or try adding more heat.

It is a MYA bowl
Many holes and the tobacco sprinkled in


I have found my old grommet though...
In the actual HEAD i'm using!
It must have been rammed in there some time ago


Just got it out and will try another session in couple hours and report back. Can't believe it!

Sorry for being stupid, suppose there another thing to check if your shisha aint pumping!!

Also choose the right water level in the bowl (damn it...i think you use bowl for that what we call in germany "kopf" "head" :/ ...maybe base?).
If the immersion tube is to deep in water you have to breath very hard.
hope you enjoy my funny post and you understand it mostly

I think I understood it, but for me Bowl= Head and the vase is just that, the glass vase filled with cold water.

I'm from London.

What a great community you guys have here, sure I'm going to be spending more time here, shame though in England the two main flavours are AF and Nakla, would love to be in the states with your huge variety AND cheap prices. I'm paying a good 40-45 for a kilo of AF...Nakla is a good 9 for 250g Its all worth it though

Glad u got it down...

if you want to check ure bowl/head air flow just suck at the bottom of the bowl after packing it to see if its good then blow out to loosen the shisha up
