Couple of things you'll need to think about though. What happens to the melted ice? Where do is go? How do you keep it from being sucked into the hose? It could be sealed and frozen with an inner coil that the smoke would travel through. Just an idea....

Yeah it would ruin an unwashable hose if water runs up the hose

Seems that it would be heavy and make the hookah tip easier.

Some questions:
a) What happens to the water?
b) How long will it last?
c) What hoses will fit into it?
d) Why is it better then using an ice chamber or ice in the vase?

ice in the base is more than enough to cool your smoke

concept is good but the design i think is off. but it is hard to see the exact idea. i would think a tube passing through an iced compartment would work but you may want to use something with a high heat transfer (i.e. copper).

i personaly all these cooling, icing things, etc end up being pointless IMHO since i smoke for 2 hours minimum and up to 4-5 some times im not going to reice anything

I would get one if it was on sale or thrown into a package with other stuff but for 20 bucks or however much it would cost its definetly more of a gimmick for me. Its a cool idea but I just put ice in the vase. Also, my main concern would be that many hookahs already have poor balance issues. Adding a chamber of ice to one of the sides might make it tip over

too heavy. Accident waiting to happen.keep a fire extinguisher nearby. And as brother Hajo points out, why is this any better than ice in the vase or a "chiller"?

Yeah Abu is right. How are you going to be able to transfer the weight? I think it would need to be longer to make a difference as well, maybe all along the hose, like a sheecool for the hose.

Rather than putting water in it, I would make it like a reusable ice pack. That way you don't get people filling it to the brim with water and have it break when it freezes. Plus with the reusable stuff you could make it out of plastic so its more lightweight.

screw the water leaking out of it on unwashable hoses... the sweat off that thing alone could ruin the hose....

props for creative thinking... but i dont think it'll work unless your hose is washable

The condensation from that device would end up hurting a non-washable hose.

It would be super heavy. Water and liquid add up really quickly.

Ice in the base is cooling enough.

Too cold and you lose flavor. I don't understand the obsession with super cold smoke.

thank you, you can get a little "cooler" smoke with ice water but it lasts what 20 mins before the ice has melted and then you just have cool water. glass has really bad thermal transfer of heat so all the temp increase to the water/ice is from the smoke going through it and idk about any one else by my water never gets very warm even after 3-5 hours
