Default Hookah Has Become Hard to Draw On

Hey Gang:

Was wondering if I could get some help on this one. I have a 32" Egyptian with Cobra Head Hoses. When I first got the hookah, I would smoke it solo with rubber plugs in the other two hose spots and it would draw fine. Over 4th of July Weekend, I took it to a party and for the the first time, hooked up the other hoses. It seemed like it was alot harder to draw on, and that
everyone had to draw at once to get smoke. HELP !!!

Make sure your bowl isnt OVER packed. cause it will get into the holes and sometimes clog them. or when you are smoking with multiple hoses without all of tem being auto seal, cover all the hose tips when one person is smoking.

hope that made sense.

Check to make sure the bowl isn't packed slam full.
Check to make sure the inside of the stem isn't blocked.
Make sure before you put the bowl on, the hookah is air-tight.

Also, I would recommend getting different hoses. I've noticed cobra's don't have the easiest draw to start with, if your hose is getting older (and heaven help if you ever put water in them - most cobras AREN'T washable) you may need a new hose.

auto seal stuff, it was just a suggestion, if it has an auto seal feature on each port then you dont have to worry about it.

Was their nice smoke in the vase?
If there wasn't, there might have been something stuck in your stem, or maybe you overpacked and didn't poke enough holes.

You are letting the coals sit for a few minutes to warm up the bowl no?

How often do you clean your pipe?
