Water. Room Temperature or warmer.

Smokey: Understand I'm not trying to be a dick or berate your pipe. It just has nothing in common with any egyptian pipe I've ever seen, and everything in common with the chinese ones we used to sell in the lounge I worked at. Like Gram said, enjoy it for what it is, that's what really matters.

Reverse osmosis water filter systems is a treatment process for water. It removes dissolved minerals, bacteria, impurities or harmful chlorine though a membrane which water are forced through it and it is usually installed under the kitchen sink or near the house water system. Through this treatment process, the water is purer and improves the water taste. This system has existed over 40 years ago where it was designed to remove the minerals from water for the photography and printing industry.

Unfortunately, reverse osmosis treatment has various drawbacks. The main function of the treatment is forcing water through the membrane to eliminate the bad minerals however, at the same time; it also eliminates the good minerals such as trace mineral e.g. sodium, calcium or potassium which is good for our health. This would also changed the water pH level and develops it from alkaline to acidic due to higher hydrogen level. As water are consumed in heavy consumption in our daily life, it is dangerous to drink acidic water as it will develop our body system to be weak making it a perfect situation for diseases to develop in our body system, for example, cancer.

Elements that are lighter than water cannot be filtered out through reverse osmosis water treatment hence pesticides that are lighter than water could travel pass the filter system. Furthermore, as the treatment uses water to pushes through the membrane, water wastage is very high as for every clean gallon uses almost four gallons of water hence making it quite environment unfriendly. The process is also time-consuming as every clean gallon of water can takes up to 3 to 4 hours through reverse osmosis treatment and thus, resulting the water bill to an escalating high cost due to the extra water wastage.

As reverse osmosis water filter systems are often installed for kitchen usage only, the benefits (or not) would not be sufficient because we will come in contact which untreated water from other sources, for example, our showers or other basins at home.

This article is not suggesting that reverse osmosis water filter systems is bad, as like other water treatment processes, it has its own pros and cons. However, the bottom-line are reverse osmosis treatment although produces purer and odorless water but it also promote too much of water wastage, environmental unfriendly, eliminates the good minerals and costly.

Always water, usually ice. I admit though, I have added a couple of things that made for a pleasant change. One is a touch of red wine. If it's paired with the right kind of shisha, it can definitely make for an enjoyable smoke. Also, instead of ice cubes, I have used frozen fruits (slightly mashed up) from time to time. It doesn't really affect the smoke, but with more pungent varieties it can add a nice nose to the overall flavor. Fresh mango would be the best so far.

A few degrees? Haha, really though, if you add enough ice (especially crushed) it can mellow the smoke a bit. Some say it effects the cloud density, but I'm not sure if it really does. Throwing the hose in the freezer for a bit before you smoke has nice mellowing effects as well.

Can you put ice in any hookah, or does it have to be a special one for that?

Well I suppose if you can make the ice small enough to fit in the vase, any hookah would do, yeah!

I got bored the other day and filled my spare vase with Gatorade Fruit Punch to smoke with and haven't cleaned it out in about, I'd say, a week or so. Its going to be fun to clean, especially my diffuser. And thats gotten everything from golden AF to DM through it already.

Besides ice, I've put in Red Bull before. It added a little zing to the flavor and might have given me energy, couldn't really tell. If it did it wasn't much. Good though, I would recommend it.

Ummmm.... I really don't wanna put U down but I gotta agree with Coyotero, this doesn't look neither Egyptian nor hand made at all!

It doesn't really matter though as long as it's giving U what U need that that's what's important

For the vase thing, I use room temp. water most of the time, sometimes a few cubes of ice and fresh mint and couple of times way back tried it with beer in the vase... very coooooool

OJ with Nakhla Orange- will change your lives.
Water with ice 99.5% of the time.
Have tried:
diluted milk- will still bubble up like crazy- avoid at all costs
red wine
red bull
hawaiian punch
water and vodka
