Default Need some help ASAP

Hey guys, so I'm trying to smoke my hookah for the first time (I've smoked quite a bit before but never with my own rig) - but I can't seem to get any smoke at all, really. I don't think it's my hole pattern, I put the coals on, the hose should work fine - everything seems to be set up perfectly - but still no smoke. What could I possibly be missing??

may not have enough tobacco in the bowl. Could be an issue w/your purge. I would pull off the bowl, put your finger over the hole and give it a pull. This will let you know if you have a leak.

I think its the bowl set up, has the purge value got a ball bearing, does it seem like your breathing in air?

do what people have been telling you, check for leaks, check the ball bearing in your purge valve, check your packing, your pattern even your coals and shisha could contribute to weak smoke... im gonna go out on a limb and guess its a possible leak with the wrong amount of shisha and coals that are not fully lit.

Did you light your coals? Are ya puttin shish in the bowl? That may make a difference! Just kiddin...but yea that's kinda weird cause I've been only smokin shish for about a couple of months and have had no probs when first starting up. Even if you have a small air leak you still can get smoke drawn through.
