Question I need help finding a new vase.

So I was plopping some ice into my vase for my most recent smoke... and the first ice cube just totally went through the bottom of it. Apparently, ice>glass.

Anyway, I'm not going to put up with smoking out of a plastic bottle for long... I need a new vase.

But I've never shopped specifically just for vases before and need your help pointing me to a good place that I can buy a separate vase. Also, are most vases a standard size? My hookah was 22 inches and seemed pretty standard. I don't really know much else about it. What should I measure?

Anyway, thanks for your help.

Measure the size of the bottom of your stem around your gasket
You need the diameter.

You should measure the diameter of the opening on the broken base and its height then go to saharasmoke or hookah-shisha and buy a comparable base. Saharasmoke tells you the diameter of the opening and the base's height.

yes this is "safer" but only shitty glass will break only by having ice hit it

Measure the width of the hole on your old vase, and definitely go to saharasmoke.com and check out the wide variety of vases they have. Also check out the clearance treasures too, they got a lot of good deals.

well there is a way to see the stress in glass by using 2 polarizing filters crisscrossed (IIRC) and you will be able to see kind of lines in the glass. not going to start a big debate but there is a large amount of glass coming to us that is not annealed properly along with every other issue you can have with glass that is being pushed off onto us as "quality" products
