As stated above, about an inch. You have to be careful not to over fill a QT or a Petite as you will get water splashing up in the hose. Not that you will end up inhaling the water but the standard Mya hoses don't take kindly to soaking!

Yeah About an inch if you will add too much you will get not only the smoke but also water into your mouth.

Keeping your hoses above the water level helps alot in this case. If the hose falls below the water level it can suck the water into the hose XD

So long as the hose port is not in contact with the water this shouldn't happen. So long as the water is where it should be the hose should not be creating a siphon when held low.

i have seen people say as little as .25 or .5 inches, i usually put less than an inch but probably a little more than .5. to much water can make the pull harder and some times can hurt flavor.

as to the water in the hose, you can get it even in a hookah with the proper level if there is just a lot of splashing and the design or execution of design is bad (i.e. rotators)

In my QT I fill to about half the vase, which gives me about .5 to .75 inches of downtube into the water. The pull is amazing. In my Black Rock it's hard to measure as the vase is not transparent. But, I aim for about the same amount of downtube in the water as with my QT. Smoke happy.

I did with my Petite the first few times I used it, until I figured out where to set the level. I don't recall it happening with my QT, but I think it would be possible.

about 1 and a half inches... after a while of filling your base you will know the best water level by eyeing it

About 2 to 3 in my QT, and about 1 to 1.5 in the gelato. Any more in the gelato causes water to get up into my purge.
