The search function would probably help you out in this case.

But basically it breaks the bubbles created by the hookah into many, smaller bubbles. It makes the hookah quieter.

People also claim the smoke is "smoother" when using a diffuser.

Some people also claim the smaller bubbles filter more stuff out including nicotine.

Without diffusers, 24 hr. Le Mans would be a nightmare.

They also spread out and soften light, which is very useful to photographers and interior designers.

it is also a divergent duct in a jets engine that is used to decrease the velocity of the compressed air to allow for easier ignition. And, at the same time, continuing to increase the air pressure before it enters the combustion chamber.

I won't use my hookah without a diffuser simply because of the noise. I haven't been smoking long enough to know if it actually affects taste.

I bought a box of Mighty Leaf tea on clearance the other day. The bags are a kind of organza fabric instead of paper. I just cut open a corner, dump out the tea, rinse it out, and use a rubber band to attach the bag to my downstem. Each bag lasts about three smokes if I hand wash it with soap between sessions, after that it just stops working. If I don't hand wash it between sessions, it doesn't work right at all.

I've read where people use a piece of nylon hosiery and you can also take a small bottle and fill it full of holes and attach it to your downstem. Whatever works for you.

People swear by their Heba diffusers. Hookah-Shisha has a little explanation about why they think diffusers are so great: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/hookahl...ifference.html

Hope this has been somewhat helpful.
