You can get a Hookah with a Ice chamber at the top I know KM makes some like this, this may help.

An easy start is to put your hose in the freezer for a while before hand, and any part of the hookah you want to put in the freezer can't hurt honestly but they heat back up pretty quick.

A little more advanced you can make mods to your hookah, for example, my ex-roommate fitted a rubber tube filled with the gel from an ice pack around the down stem between the bowl and where it connects to the base. He kept it in the freezer until he wanted to smoke. This only works if you can take off the little ornate decoration thingies around the downstem but it really worked well for like the first 15 mins of a sesh.

do you think putting some salt in the base would help since it makes it colder?

Mix flavors with mint. That'll make it "seem" cold because you get that cooling sensation from the mint. just a suggestion.

You don't even have to use a lot of mint, and it will still have that "cooler" taste. Put some ice in the vase, mix in a little mint with whatever you're having (it goes with anything, really), and you're good to go!

Try adding a diffuser to your stem, the smaller bubbles should cool more quickly.

A lot of ice usually does it for me. I second on freezing the hose, its the coldest smoke you will ever get.

I wouldnt suggest the ice with salt in the base, the temp. difference is more likely to crack the glass than if you just used ice. i know a few people have broken their bases through temp. shock.

I've heard of someone making their own hose, getting it like 10-15 feet and coiling it into a bucket. Then filling the bucket with some ice water so the hose stays cold the whole time.

what hookah are you using? shorter hookahs have warmer smoke...
also, i have a KM Ice, the ice chamber barely makes a difference...
and another thing salt in the base is one of the biggest epic fails you can make, makes it so cold the base might crack, and the temperature causes the flavor to be non-existent except for a salt water flavor... just use ice in the base and if you have a hose with a metal coil, put it in the freezer for the time it takes your coals to light.

it MIGHT, i say just do it DMC style if ya want it super cold, put the hookah in an open styrofoam or regular cooler full of ice. no salt, and also use the base full of ice and let it cool before putting it in the cooler, so the temperature change is gentle and can't cause cracking or breaking.

I think that a couple handfuls of ice cubes is enough cause it gives you a decent amount of coolness and flavor. You could get a plastic base and use that for a cooler with ivey saltwater.

Salt also makes your vase smell like ass for a while. I had to clean mine because of some A-hole doing bad things to my poor baby and salt worked well to clean all the "goobers" out but still smells pretty bad.

Ice in Base = Ice>Water in base.
Freeze hose for 4-5 minutes.
Freeze your stem for 4-5 minutes.
Then freeze the coals (optional)

Spot on ive noticed if i get the clouds cooler i get way less taste, so dont just add a whole load of ice cubes to your base, unless you dont care bout the taste

Just a reminder, dry ice may seem like a fantastic idea, but it really isnt haha. There's several methods you could use to get colder smoke. Ice in the base, ice chamber, milk in the base seems to work pretty well. Condenses smoke, resulting in a bit colder.

Adding mint is pretty good. I use Mizo mint, which is super strong mint, so use it sparingly if you want to taste anything else BUT the mint.

add mint to the shisha. also add ice in the vase befor the water add lemon juice to the water avoid adding salt to water cause youre not making ice cream and it doesnt really make a difference because there is not a cold layer on the outside to keep it circulating.
