About an inch above the bottom of the down stem. If you have a km you can just cover that weird flare thing.

+1 with the 1-2 inches, but no more! Ice? Pros and cons there...

Better do a little too much than a little too less water if you wanna go for thick clouds. I always try to get 3-4 cm above the bottom of the stem.. that's ~1,5 inch

About 1in. You can do a little more in larger hookahs. But in small hookahs you probably shouldn't go too much more than 1in or you might suck water into the hose.

In a larger vase you can choose how much water you want but 1" is a good starting point. If you like a little more drag to your pull you can fill it 1.5+" which should give you a more restricted feeling although this can be accomplished by simply using a narrow hose.

I like a bit of resistance with my KM, so I go an inch and a half to two inches.. Safe bet is to start with the downstem an inch submerged and go from there.

Submerge the downstem one Inch. Too much can restrict the draw depending on your Hookah.
