Default Custom Hookah Design Idea (pics)

So I'm contemplating building my own "ultimate hookah." The idea behind it is to get the smoke as cold as possible. I am thinking of building it so that the whole stem and base goes in the freezer and has some sort of water jacket on it that can be frozen. I drew this picture in about 10 minutes and of course it is missing all of the details needed for it to actually work, but I drew it to show the idea of the frozen water around the stem and base idea. What do you guys think. I may just make the stem freeze and put ice in the base.


If you guys give me some more ideas I can model them up in solidworks and we can critique some more!

there is a hookah you can get that the base is built in the same way.
If you really want to do this you need to consider expansion above all else. There needs to be room for the water to expand as it freezes and not break what it is contained in.

Ya I have seen that hookah, and have also seen the hookah's w/the ice chamber under the bowl. While that is great an all, why not make the whole stem frozen? Hopefully I will be bored enough this week to make it. I might just make a freezable stem and use my Mya base

not a bad idea, but keep in mind, if your smoke gets too cold it detracts from the flavor.

also must consider the size. The hookah will probably be pretty small if the whole thing is to fit inside a freezer.

how about ... make an ice scupture hookah....100% composed of ice besides the bowl and try and some insulator to keep the hot bowl from melting the attachments....it would only last a session tho...lots of work....

Also...like...the water in the base has limitations on how cold it can be (less than 0 degrees C and it is no longer water)

But you can supercool the stem to be negative hundreds of degrees ^_^

Make the stem detachable (easier to put in the freezer).
Instead of water around the stem, use freezer gel. No expansion problems and will stay cold alot longer.
Then get you a She Cool base from ******* Hookah.

That's an awesome idea! But the downside is that if the hookah gets too cold, it can seriously irritate your throat.

Yeah, I am thinking about converting my old MYA to something like this, but with gel from ice packs and also getting rid of the common chamber by welding in some pipe. It would work great IMO especially with a mint flavor tobacco, as long as you don't put ice in the vase as well. If you do decide to do this, take pics and update us, also be prepped to copyright the design so you make millions, lol!

I never bother with ice or cold stuff, and all of my sessions are flavorful, clouds are nice as well. Too much ice can take away from the session. It is all about proportion . I think you idea is a great concept, but a little too much ice for mah blood.

good idea, imo.

Like someone else was saying doing that with the gel from those ice packs in the stem may be something to try for sure.

Maybe this sounds crazy but why don't you try to do a fruit vase hookah... I've seen many posts that talks about bowls made of fruit and that kind of stuff, but I've been thinkin of making a hookah vase made of coconut shelf. I don't know if that possible but maybe you can get something from this.

Some of the earliest shisha were made out of coconut shells. I heard about someone making a watermelon base recently.

well i was too excited to try it out to put it in the freezer, so i filled the stem with ice, and the base with ice. the base is a gallon gatorade bottle so it held plenty of ice and water and left tonsssss of room for smoke. I'm officially going to bed now though ill type more tommorow

the smoke was SMOOTH and COLD. We smoked al fahker mint mixed with starbuzz chocolate strawberry. It smoked amazing for about an hour. The whole pvc chamber is filled with ice, and iside of it is a copper tube. The hose was half inch inner diameter and effortless to take huge pulls. Pretty sweet homeade hoookah

That looks awesome in an industrial sort of way. (bf would love it!) Are we going to get more pics in the near future.

Note: I've used those gel packs, but it looks pretty ghetto when they're held on with rubber bands.

Sure I can take more pictures of whatever you want. It is a 1 gallon gatorade bottle that holds lotsssssss of smoke, 2 feet of pvc which holds all of the ice around a half inch diameter copper tube. Various reducers and fittings are on the pvc to get it to seal off. Smoked my MZ right after and they are quite different hookahs. The custom one has ice cold smoke and slightly bigger clouds, though flavor is a hair less. It is so smooth that anybody could smoke it. I have no doubt this one blows away any chiller hookah on the market

I can attest this hookah worked great. Convinced me so much, I just joined the forum to compliment it. We smoked it again with different flavor shisha and it came through a bit more. It's not too pretty but function over form.
