If you only need one hose, remove the other two hose and plug the pipe holes with a rubber stopper or make a homemade one!! This will stop the air from getting into the hookah and you will get better smoke ( If everything else is set up correctly)

if its a mya its most likely seals with out the need of a stopper, you have to remember when smoking that nice thick flavourful smoke is more in the bowl and coals then anything else in your setup. Make sure your water lvl is aproximetly one inch over the downstem. When packing your bowl make sure your shisha is packed down just BELOW the rim of the bowl applay two sheets of tinfoil on top and pull tight. When poking your wholes i find the smaller the whol and the most of them works the best but again this is personal preference. When using coals your going to have top decide weather you want ALOT of smoke or a nice tasting not harsh session, put on your coals to your desired hookah session is acheived. your going to have to play around with it alot to make it rigt and everybrand is differnt
HOPE THIS HELPS!

its not polite to come on to a forum and bash decent products with no justifications, especially when you have no history with the forum. myas are pretty good rigs, lacking in some areas but they are at least consist compared to the "handmade quality" other rigs are known for.


do you have auto seal (bb's in the hose ports that stop air from going back? if so you might have a leak or possibly need to work on your set up, if you dont have autoseal you need to plug up the other holes. one thing a lot of people have issues with is getting the bowl sealed well and thus have "no leak" in their rig (it is very hard to test a rig with the bowl on it for leaks cause, at least for me, i have a hard time making a solid seal over the bowl with the foil on with my hand)

Mass factory production just make for a less quality hookah. Compared to KM, Mya just has a completly different feel. Im sure i couldnt find one person that doesnt agree you could get better smoke and duaribility out of other hookahs(especially KM). And it gets minus a few because its syrian. EGYPTION ALL DA WAY! I apoligize for going straight to the conclusion in my last few posts.

Myas are high quality and well constructed.
The smoke depends more on the user than anything else.
Mya Saray hookahs are not Syrian. They are Chinese.
Some of the worst hookahs on the market are hand made and some a factory made. It's not a deciding factor.

There is no reason to be rude about your opinions. Everyone has preferences and every hookah has it's pros and cons.

mass production doesnt mean lower quality. the egyptians are mass produced but they are mass produced my hand. i own a mya and a km. my km is not as well made, hands down, i like it more, i think the design is better but it is not as high quality from a metal working stand point (a note at this point to back up my observations, i am a glassblower and a metal smith and a BFA candidate for a degree in those areas). the myas are cast brass which by it self will be stronger than the hollow steel and copper construction of the KMs.the kms have solder joints, many of them rough which leads to weak points from a pure strength stand point and due to point corrosion can attack. and finally any individual example of a model of a mya will be the same as the next but a KM will not. this gives issues when trying to swap between pieces you have to really test.

i will give you that the myas have a smaller diameter down stem and the inner stems are rough and harder to clean but it will not rust like steel and brass will not let corrosion eat through it like steel will. however the glass is exponentially better, i do not know for sure if they have machine made glass or higher quality production shop glass. no matter the mya glass is far far far superior to the junk coming out of egypt. the myas also have better threads over all on the purge valves, their threading is consistent piece to piece, while i have seen egyptian threadings not even cleared properly.

i agree my KM smokes better but i will argue that the myas are less durable or lower quality
