Default Water in hose

I have been getting water in my hose occasionally while inhaling. Also sometimes when exhaling through the hose to clear the check valve and the air in the base it seems to force water through the stem into the bowl. Is there any way to prevent this? Any tips are appreciated.

Fill up the vase less and don't inhale as forcefully.

This usually happens when I put too much water in the base.

I'll try less water. The base is dark green so its hard to see how much water is in there sometimes. Also it seems that the coating on the downtube has a slight crack or two, is this something serious? The hookah is relatively new, got it for Christmas.

On the downstem? It depends on where it is and how big it is. Can you post pics?

No pictures but it appears to just be the paint flaking off

fill up your vase with water and blow into the down steam as hard as you can until the water stops coming out, that is where you want the water level (according to coconara) or just an inch above the bottom of the stem

get a nice clear plastic cup and measure out the perfect amount and mark it with a sharpie marker. Leave the cup with your hookah stuff and you will have just the right amount every time.

I have used a T Square and ice cold water on the base. The condensation marks the water line and then just measure down from the stem/base attachment to the end of the stem. Line it up outside and you get that perfect 1 inch mark. Then use the cup measurement so you know where to fill from there on out.
