Default Problem with a Diffuser and Base

I have the Hafa KM Hookah, and I recently just bought a diffuser, the problem is when the diffuser is in It touches the bottom of the vase and the grommet can't close all the way and their is in air leak.

Is their a way I can get a vase larger than 12 inches to accommodate the increase in stem size(diffuser) for the diffuser?

Or is 12 inch vase the largest vase you can find?

Thanks.

I don't think they have vases bigger than the KM's...
maybe a MZ vase, I'm not sure.

Maybe you can buy a shorter stem or try to cut the end of your stem with an special chainsaw or something. Good luck with that!

the diffuser is supposed to get pushed all the way on not just part way down. not sure if the stem just sits really far down in your rig though

I have the same problem with one of my KM's, the downstem is very long and has the bell at the end.

toss the thing and make a new one with a peice of screen. it works a million times better.

I used a 3 inch kitchen strainer. Rip the screen out and roll it wrounf the bottom of the base. Secure it with 2 twist ties and thats all there is to it. it has a lot of give for the vase.

Idk why but the small diffuser fits my KM perfectly. But what I did in order for the grommet to fit the bottom of the downstem was that I cut some of the plastic off to make the diffuser a better fit.

A true 12" tall base is about the tallest I've seen (and that's a monster of a vase).
