Default What am I doing wrong????

Hello hookah world. I know i am just a newbie, but i do read the posts and try to make each session better. But I am stumped. I just received the KM I ordered on Saturday. As we all know it is NOT the KM that is causing my problem. I have not been able to get as good of a session out of it, as i have with my other two hookahs. Two coals do not seem to be enough. Three coals well lets just say i am not good enough to do that dance just yet. I am using CH natural coals, heavy duty foil, and Al Fakher shisha tobacco. Help me please. I am know there is something small i am overlooking.

or put a windcover over it
if you dont have a windcover just use foil...

put 3 coals on the edge of the bowl (like a triangle pattern),
make sure you don't pack too tightly,
make sure the shisha is below the rim of the bowl
and not touching the foil,
make sure all the grommets are in place,
and you have no leaks.
(which you shouldn't have, since it's a brand new khalil mammoun)
what kind of bowl are you using?

well, i usually just rotate my coals to a different position every time they are ashed. hasn't failed me yet. especially with CH naturals.

so what's the biggest problem with your session? harsh smoke, not enough smoke, etc?

yeah, try using a windcover if you have one, use more coals, put the coals closer to each other, etc. i use 3x CH naturals with a standard clay bowl and it works wonderfully.

I use 2 CH coals on my KM bowl, and use a wind cover. As somebody else said, just use a sheet of aluminum foil as a windcover if you dont have one.

2 coals and a wind cover.

If that is not enough it may mean you are under packing the bowl. It could also mean your hookah may not be perfectly sealed.

unless your hookah has auto seal, when 1 person pulls on the hookah, the other hoses must be plugged or air is drawn thru them rather than the stem of the hookah.

Yeah, man, you gotta cover up the openings on the hoses or the ports. Use tape, rubber stoppers, whatever. The problem is that the air you're pulling is through the other hoses, not the bowl. Each port shares the air above the water in the vase, and thus is more accessible than the smoke in the downstem. You have to eliminate the air's ability to come in through the other hoses to pull the smoke through the downstem.
