Default don't freeze your base

This may be obvious to some, but i had a customer buy a hookah last week. he just came in and told me he filled his base with ice and water and put it in the freezer just for 20 miuntes thinking he would chill it. well, it broker in the freezer. that may be obvious to some but not to all. don't try that at home.

sambooka i know what you may be thinking but this is a true story

Yeah, I'm not sure why you would do that. Heat shock.

Be kind to your hookah!

Putting my base in the freezer would be the last location it ever would be put in.

Isn't there a base that is coming out or is already out that you can put in the freezer kind of like a beer mug?? Or did I have a dream? I think I read about it somewhere.

I just googled and searched through 2 different forums and didn't find anything about a base you can freeze.

Hearing a story like this is so depressing, because similar things have happened to me in the past. I wasn't ignorant enough to straight freeze the base, but I have cracked one before because of ice water...it was lame.

Bro I don't read the other shitty forums. I'm pretty sure I heard it at one of the local lounges.

That sucks for your customer. One of the reason's why I bought a KM is because the base is too big for the freezer...JK
I do remember some kind of base that could be frozen. It was like a mya acrylic, but it had the gel-like stuff in between the layers of acrylic or something

I'm not a big fan of ice in the base my self. IT MAKES THE SMOKE THICKER......pfft I don't recognize it. Even if it did its probably a marginal difference anyway.

I kind of have to agree on larry here. If it does make a difference, it's not something that is very noticeable. And after my misfortune i can tell you if i do use ice at all its going in the ice chamber lol. I think i would rather have water in my core that can slowly leak out when upside down afterwards rather than having a broken base again

There should be no problem with placing an EMPTY vase in the freezer for 20-30 mins. I often use crushed ice, in the vase, along with water, never had a problem here either.

You should have clubbed him to death with his own vase.
