Default Does the syrup ever leak out the bottom of the bowl?

So I'm still learning some of the basics, but when I load my bowl and begin to smoke it, after some time i'll notice that syrup starts leaking out the bottom of the bowl and onto the tray...

I'm not sure if this is normal, havn't seen it here discussed on the forums but was just wondering.

Yeah, it is normal for juice to leak out.

But, if it is leaking to the tray, that means the bowl is a lil too big for your stem (hehe happened to me a number of times). Just get a piece of a wet paper towel and wrap it around your bowl grommet. then, put the bowl on top. It will make it more airtight and it'll soak up the leaking juices too!

If it's a really wet tobacco, yes, it may leak out. If it's really dry, and you washed the bowl before you smoked, it's probably the excess water in the bowl leaking out.

Buy a funnel bowl and you'll never have this prob again.
It saves the juices for smoking instead of wasting them...

If your grommet fits right juice will go down the stem and not leak out on the tray. When I remove the bowl at the end of a session there is usually alot of juice on the grommet and in the water.

If you are leaking juices all the way down to the ashtray, you may have a seal problem. I would look at fixing that. At the very most, your juices should be leaking down your stem, not around your seal and into your ashtray. To me that says you don't have a good seal.
