Default what to do

I had BBQ this weekend and there was a lot of people smoking hookah about an hour into the session we decided to change the flavor I wasn't sure if I should reuse the foil or just get a new one. We decided to just get a new foil and pack another bowl. So I was wondering what do you guys do?

I can afford it it's just a pain in the ass to go all the way inside the house get the foil and cut out another square and then go back outside and pack a bowl

Bits of ash are bound to fall in the holes and clog them up slightly so of course you should change the foil.
I change the foil and water everytime I pack a new bowl.

I bring more than one bowl to a party and have both packed before I light the coals. That way I don't have to wait for one to cool down and don't have to pack a new one once we finish the first.

i always got a new foil mostly because the old foil would be hot so i would toss it.

But it really pays off to have 2 bowls or a multi head bowl. That way it makes switching so much easier.

only time i reuse is if we're really low on foil and repacking the same flavor. i have a pretty tiny egyptian bowl (10-12 g), and i always end up with a tiny bit of shisha sticking to the inside surface of the foil

I usually reuse the foil if it's still in good shape and doesn't have any cooked shisha stuck to it. I figure, if it saves me a few seconds and it doesn't create as much waste, why not?
