Default diffuser+tangiers= foam?

so last night i got a chance to try out tangiers f-line kashmir. AMAZING by the way. i started out getting huge amounts of smoke. I was using a home made diffuser that was made out of the cap of a hair spray bottle. After a couple minutes the bubbles started turning into foam and climbing up the base until it got to the hose. I had to blow it out ever pull to stop it and ended up just taking the diffuser off.

Any ideas why it would do that?

i would really like to continue to use the diffuser because i've noticed that it does make the smoke smoother and keeps the coals from moving around.

any advise would be great

Maybe add more holes in the diffuser? The pull is probably too hard

its got a lot of holes. the pull is pretty easy.

another thing that might help diagnose the issue is, it doesn't matter how fast i pull. even when i go slow on the pull it still starts to foam up

Maybe a silly question, it has been fully cleaned right? No residue from it's past life in any of the holes etc?

Yeah sounds like soap to me. Water doesn't foam like that so there must be something foreign in your setup..

are you using water in the base?

water shouldn't foam like that unless you washed the base in the dish washer and it still has a bit of soap on it
