Default Ice KMs have cooling agent inside?

A friend of mine bought a new ice hookah from thehookah.com recently and was shocked to tell me that after freezing the entire hookah for a while just how cold it was, he also said that afterwords when tipping the stem upside down there was something "dripping" inside slowly, so he suspected it wasn't water and thinks it might actually contain the sort of liquid that ice pack type things have that freezes... is this true?

I think your mistaking the KM for a Sheecool hookah like one found here

these contain a cooling agent and i bet that it is very possible for it to leak out

the sheecool has that in the vase...not the stem to my knowledge? could be wrong.

and i dont think he was mistaken, he was inquiring about his friends KM which appears to have a liquid in the stem.

So he froze the whole stem? Sounds like he built up condensation inside the walls of the stem. There is nothing like that in the chillers of any kind. Also could be a weak weld that allowed water inside. My first hookah has that problem.

Also tell your friend freezers make things cold.

I was just assuming that after he took the stem out of the water in the base (which already had leaked cooling fluid in it) then he tipped it upside down and the few remaining drops that could have been inside the stem might have been dripping down "slowly" like he said, unless it is just juice from the bowl which is probably more probable than what i first suspected.

Yeah there was a long crack in the base of the ice chamber, water was leaking all inside. Although it's obviously bad bananas and shouldn't be like that, with the inside of the KM frozen solid while smoking it felt like you had an ice pack on the back of your neck. MAN it was cold :O
