Default Your Hookah Mistake

Hey HookahPro! UsCorp here..

I just wanted to start a thread about your biggest Hookah mistake, either it be anything from breaking it or horrible shisha.


Mine was not checking if the purge valves ball berring was unstuck(it sticks), and i blew really hard. Shot water up the stem and killed my bowl.

Good times!


Lets hear about yours!

I did it when my bowl was off, but the coals were in the tray. Blew too hard and watched the beautiful waterspout come out and extinguish my coals, hahah.

My is when i was moving my hookah with a coal on top of the bowl and the bowl fell off, shattered the bowl, and burnt a hole in the carpet. It was not a good day. I have learned from my mistakes.

Mine was when i was at a party. Everyone there was piss drunk and we decided to get out the hookah......man, some girls are just too grabby with the hookah stuff, im trying to set it up and they keep taking tongs. Well, the hookah fell twice that night, no major damage except for a few burns on their hardwood floor. But still, it was not a happy night for me, even though i did get laid by some random chick who i had no idea what her name was. And, it was also the first time i smoked hookah in quite some time so i wanted to enjoy it but all i had was Al Waha and Lemonwood coals.....good enough when your drunk though..

Mine was not understanding the difference between Washed and Unwashed Shisha. I got horribly sick yesterday morning after being up all night hosting a party (booze involved). I loaded a bowl of Pharoe's Strawberry Kiwi (Unwashed Shisha) that a friend bought for me. Let's just say, I met King RAaaaLPh... Very gross and ill...

UScorps... I have ruined many of a good flavor But....

Try just buying a brand new hookah and then getting rear ended. That blew a big goat. At least the insurance actually covered it. Too bad I could not find the same one as I had.

Buying a 250g of rosetta blueberry shisha for $15 at a local shop. Total waste.

I was about half way through a vortex bowl and had to leave the house for a few hours...My OCD kicked in and I decided I had to clean my hookah before I left, so I picked the entire thing up and walked into the kitchen.

Trying to "save time" - I tried to remove the bowl from the stem, still packed, 2 live coals on top (don't ask why I thought this was a good/even decent idea)...I pulled a little too hard on the bowl, the coals went flying, landed on two different areas on a nice rug, ash went everywhere and then I dropped the bowl because it was hot...baked shisha and broken bowl everywhere .

Result of "saving time"...
-2 HUGE burn marks in the rug
-Ash all over the kitchen
-Broken vortex bowl
-Shisha all over the rug, floor and counters
-Was about 20 mins late for the appt I was trying to be early for.

I really didn't make any huge mistakes, I guess using a screen on hookahhookah tobbacco and using akhla coals, you won't see me complain about coals giving shisha a flavor, but these coals really really do and it's not good, plus they feel weird in your tongs.

ALso, I feel like i could have saved money by just buying a nour or a km straightout, but then I would never have learned anything, so I guess it's a good thing i started out simple.

Other than that, I've always kinda had a gift with bowl packing and heat management, no problems there, so dunno, my hookah time lines, been pretty smoothless.

I just had my first real major mishap. Let's just say that the carpet burns in my room is making me contemplate telling my parents about this "dispicable" habit of mine.
