Default MY KM EXPLODDEEEDDD

okay, so i bought a new custom KM and i was so stoked when it got here i was like a little kid at christmas. so i smoked a bowl with ice in the base and ice in the chiller no problems... comes around to that night and me and my buddy go in the garage with the same setup ice in the base and ice in the chiller. then all the sudden my coals fly across the room and my base is missing the bottom glass peice. it was not tugged or tapped it simply just blew off the bottom peice! im not mad about this because HJ is a beast at helpin his customers out..but still not expected from my KM

Wow! That's insane. I don't understand why the base would just explode like that! Either way, John will be SURE to hook you up when something this catastrophic goes wrong. At least your KM had the correct vase and hose. Mine came with a terrible hose and a short 8 inch vase where the downstem touches the bottom. Once I get out of this debt, It will be new Shimmer Bell vase from TheHookah and Narbish hose.

Now, that's what I call a good seal! Anyway, what ELSE did you put in your vase besides ice and water?

sounds like your base already had a crack near the bottom, or the ice you put in there caused the crack or worsened the pre-existing crack. you have to beware when adding ice to your base. Not sure that HJ is responsible, although being a great merchant, he will definately help you out! Good luck

Your Syrian fanboyism really seems to be irrelevant and unnecessary.
I'm sure this has happened with a non Egyptian before.

i think it has to do with concrete and ice and KM vases happened to me also not quite as dramatic but split into peices none the less. I really dont think it is the KM's fault at all but more of a thermal shock thing. Ive busted several vases in my gerage i belive mostly from thermal shock and once to a hot splatter atack from the welder while building the frame for my min truck. you want to talk about explode wait till you see a 10K ferinhite peice of slag fall from a welder and watch it hit a base its an awsome site at least thats what the guys who were standing around said. Good luck in you conquest to get a new base, may I recomend a SS cheepie base from there clearnce section. there like 3 bucks and buy a couple spares at that price.

I have a couple of KM bases and I have found them to be of terrific quality which coming from a die-hard Syrian fan like myself says a lot. The truth is that given the huge number of bases they make a some will be defective and explode. I would also say that when a base blows out more often then not it's the fault of the owner who dinged it and caused a crack or exposed it to temperature shock. In any case I don't think it's fair to slam KM as having bad quality problems when they are far better then Mya most of the stuff on the market.

It shouldn't have exploded like that just for putting ice in it.

Think about it, you put ice in your glass before pouring a drink in there, and a glass is made of a LOT thinner glass than your base is.

There must have been some manufacturing mistake or some other kind of crack in it or something.
Did you leave it sitting out in the sun before you put the ice in it or something?
Because putting ice in a room temperature base should not be enough of a temperature change to make the glass break....

Anyone else agree with that?

You had ice in the base then you went to your Garage, unless your garage is airconditioned or you live in a cool weather, I now my garage gets hot, very hot so it could the the extreme temp differance and the base is sealed I could be wrong

If there is a significant air bubble in the glass when it is blown the the ice can cause the air to expand rapid causing the glass to crack or if it is a significant air bubble even explode
