Default Hookah contraption

Would there be a way to get your smoke to be the air that pulls into the bowl to increase the flavor? Would it be worth it?

The hookah normally pulls in air, would there be a way to replace the air it pulls in with the smoke that you exhale

Ever try shotgunning with someone? You don't really get any flavor.

I haven't shotgunned, ok thanks, that was what I was wondering if pulling smoke into the bowl would amplify the flavor

There are a couple flavors that seem like you can actually taste the exhaled smoke (hh key lime pie comes to mind), but yeah I doubt you'd get any substantial flavor by "recycling" it

So what you want to create is a hookah Moebius loop? I don't think physics will allow it. Maybe something like this will help http://www.kleinbottle.com/

Thats awesome, maybe just a large wind cover like device to trap the smoke in around the bowl. I have had flavors where the smoke smells really excellent so I thought that might add more to the flavor

couldn't there be a problem with the lack of oxygen to the coals with something like this?

Just enjoy your hookah for what it is.

If you're not getting the flavor you want, try a different brand.

Try smoking in an enclosed bubble like a camping tent or a very small room (like a bathroom)this way you can pretty much replace all the fresh air with smoke and eventually it will make its way back into the hookah....

Just kidding . Don't do it

Hmmm Nope will not work the coals needs oxygen to burn and give off heat so in smoke laden air they will smolder and die and the CO levels will be off the charts in no time so this is not advisable at all

hehe.. the mythical turbo'd hookah. i've often imagined this, but the engineering would be a huge feat. here's what i'm thinking...

you'd need:
2 hose hookah
the world's tiniest, low inertia turbo
plenty of tubing-- both metal and pcv
a restrictive air filter
a bowl with an air tight clamp on lid
one-way valve
home-made water to smoke intercooler
some fittings and whatnot

i think that's about it. here's the basic walkthrough...hopefully the m$paint illustration helps.

OK: your hookah is set up as normal, but using an airtight clamp on lid for the bowl and no regular hoses.
hose 1 connects from the bung on the hookah to the input of the "exhaust" side of the turbo.
your regular smoking hose connects from the output of the "exhaust" side of the turbo impeller. when you smoke, smoke is pulled through the impeller side, turning the compressor side. this sucks smoke from the vase through hose 2.
hose 2 connects from the second bung to the input of the compressor side of the turbo. this will make the hookah pull from both hoses simultaneously. smoke from hose 1 goes directly to the smoker while smoke from hose 2 enters the intercooler.
smoke drawn from hose 2 passes through the intercooler (so as not to return more heat with the recycled smoke) into the mixing chamber.
in the mixing chamber, cooled smoke and fresh air are drawn in and mixed to be pulled across the coals and back into the hookah. the restrictive air filter is necessary to create equivalent pressures at the chamber inputs. otherwise you would just end up pulling in fresh air and negating the entire purpose. mixing fresh air in is necessary to prevent build up of CO2 from extinguishing the coals or choking you.
heat resistant tubing connects from the outlet of the mixing chamber to the inlet of the airtight bowl lid. this returns cooled smoke to the hookah inlet while still providing oxygen for the coals. the tubing must be heat resistant because the air-tight bowl lid will get hot and would melt pvc tubing.

i think that's about the full description. don't know if it'll make sense to anyone else.

inherent problems with this setup:
no potential for purging... if you blow back into the smoking hose, it would spin the turbo backwards and i'm not entirely sure what the outcome would be, but without a blow off valve somewhere, it wouldn't be good... i think it might actually recycle air/smoke backwards through the hookah
the mixing chamber maybe should be before the turbo compressor... i'm really not sure at this point, but i'm not going back to fix the diagram.
once you have your miles of tubing and accessories set up,it might be too hard to pull the hookah. way too many variables to even speculate.

ROFL, this got way over complicated and now my girlfriend is laughing at me for putting way too much effort into an imaginary (probably purposeless) device. way to put my engineering degree to good use...
