Cool Quick few questions about a simple issue.

I have 3 different bowls. A small egyptian, a med egyptian and a large phunnel. When i smoke out of the two egyptian bowls i find that the juice or flavor or whatever you want to call it, gets into the hose and i end up tasting it. Its not really a bad thing. It has an ok flavor and turns my tounge numb, but its not exactly the most pleasent experience.

Is there a way to eliminate or eleviate this? Do i not have the coals hot enough and hitting it too often? What ecactly is causeig this issue? Please?

Could this be caused by the fact that my hookah's heart has a common chamber?

you get hookah juice for the moassel in your mouth via the hose?? that shouldn't be possible... even with a common chamber... the juice/smoke gets pulled down the stem into the water then out and up into the chamber, the juice shouldn't be able to make the final part of that... you might have too much water in your base since it sounds like you're sucking water through your hose.

Wait, I'm confused. When you say the flavor gets into your hose and you end up tasting it do you mean when you smoke one flavor and then you have a session, say, a day or two later you can taste the previous flavor(s) that you smoked on top of the one you're currently smoking?

The numb tongue could be from harsh smoke (too much heat/burning the shisha) or chain hitting it. Are you using quick lite coals? Are you letting the coals heat completely (red/orange all the way through, no black spots) before placing them on your bowl?

you shouldnt have more than 1 inch of water over the bottom of the stem, some people go down to 1/4 of an inch, i think i usually go 1/2 of a bit more over the stem.

if you cant see into you base fill it and then just pull right on the port w/o the bowl on, if you get water in the port then you have to much. some times the hookah is designed/build bad and just catches water
