Default just ice in the vase

does anyone think that chopped ice would work without any water? It would be filtering as much as cooling but it could be interesting.

No I don't think so. you need liquid to make it bubble and filter the smoke. I mean you will get smoke, but its gonna be a lil warm compared to with water. Its just not gonna hubbly bubbly :P

And your gonna get some stuff through your smoke that the water usually filters 

I remember dmcwebd saying that crushed ice makes it colder or something but I haven't tried it yet.

just crushed ice will work. the only thing that the water really does anyway is cool the smoke, there really isn't as much "filtration" going on as everyone thinks...

the only thing that will be hard with only ice is getting the stem to fit all the way in, if you have a mya or another hookah where you can unscrew the downstem i would recommend that, so you can fill up the entire vase with ice.

try it out and let us know how it goes, good luck!

If you are going to try this, I would put 90% crushed ice and 10% water at least? Could be interesting!?

yeah, don't make it all ice, maybe enough water to make the bubbly sound

I agree with the idea of some water in there too. Be careful how much ice you put in, because it will melt quickly and might end up being more water in the base than you need.

It would work, it'd be more like a pipe with ice in the middle.

I think all the ice would melt before you get halfway into your session. But there's no better way to find out than to test it out yourself. Try it out and let us know...

you do need some water, otherwise i dont think it would work too well.... make it so theres a ton of crushed ice and...say enough water to where its a little over where you normally put it (to compensate when it melts) and it would work fine then

I tried in today 90% ice and 10% water and it worked very well! seemed to distille the smoke almost....

However after it melted the vase had a little bit too much water it in.
