Arrow SmokeSpace

I've recently bought the King Expresso Hookah

http://www.thehookah.com/images/D/d2...large_onyx.jpg

However the space in the bowl for the smoke , is kind of small

also the stem its inner diameter is 2cm ! huge ... ,

but after w8ting a short while , meaning not pulling smoke the smoke seems gone for 5 sec's

this is weird ...

i don't think its because of the inner volume of the stem though

How could i solve this ?

im not exactly sure what your issue is, i think the smoke is settling in the base quickly? are you getting good smoke when you pull?

Congrats on the purchase, I myself have found when those were used at hookah bars, I there were issues with them. A lot of them leaked water from the base, and had issues w/ water bubbling into the hose, even though the line was barely an inch above the stem. Not all of that style though had issues.

If smoke is pulled into the base, the smoke will stay in the base for a good time, unless theres a leak, check to see where the smoke is escaping.

Even though there's a small chamber for smoke, you should still be able to get a lot, remember the more you inhale, the more smoke will come down into the water. If you're not getting much smoke, consider your bowl packing method, or potentially adding more heat to your bowl (another coal).

I have a feeling the last paragraph applies to you, but if theres a leak check.

I used to think that hookah was crap until I noticed my good friend was using his for a year and going strong. When I am at his house he gets just as much smoke from his as I do my egyptians, well, almost. I have since changed my mind on them and think it's a respectable starter/travel hookah.
you should be able to make it work out. good luck.
