Default My Hookah Tips Over!!!!

Hello I ordered a new dragon round 13" Hookah from sahara smoke.com and i am having trouble with its stabability. . .everytime i bring the hose to my mouth i have to be concerned with the whole hookah tipping over. It really bothers me and takes away from the relaxation of smoking hookah. I would like to know if there was anyway to add weight to the hookah or increase the stababilty

that's a problem with small hookahs. it's just not heavy enough to support a hose being moved around too easily. the 12" hookah I have does the same thing.

Yeah good idea to make sure, you might also want to ask about the grommets. Your hookah probably has an egyptian style grommet? and i think usually with those vases they use silicon grommets....probably not a big deal either way, but just to be safe if u need to pick up another grommet you should ask.

As wierd as this sounds, get some fish tank gravel and put maybe a half inch into your base. This will add a lot of weight and stabilize your rig, without affecting the filtration at all, the smoke doesnt get that far down into the base anyway.

what about putting fishing sinkers in your base that would help and it would be a lot easier!

that would be dangerous because fishing sinkers are made out of led which is cancerous

not all fishing sinkers are lead. They will be phasing those out soon is what DNR told me this summer.

i had that problem with my first hookah what i did was i filled the bottom of the base with vase rocks that i found at a craft store less water but more stable

or the obvious more expensive answer is get a bigger hookah
(worked for me)

WOW, the rocks is actually a good idea!

I have also known one of the girls here to hot glue a plate to the bottom of her base. It made it way more stable! no more tip overs!

The best thing and most aesthetically pleasing is to pick up another base, jsut swap them out, a dish vase as stated, or the MYA ones, or similar style, it will be very stable.

If it isn't a particularly expensive hookah, or if you aren't very attached to it you can go and purchase a plate weight from a used sports store and velcro/epoxy the hookah base to it. I did this because I had a 26inch always falling over, and it widened the base and was basically impossible to tip over at that point.

I used to have this problem with my small hookah also, what i did was get a tall tupperware container about the width of the base, and just stick my hookah in that. If i pulled the hose too hard or something else that would otherwise cause it to tip, it would just slide around instead of toppling over.

[FONT=Verdana]We started to do this at our parties a few years ago with all our hookahs, but stuck with it for regular sessions with our small ones. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]We got some Velcro strips, cut them into 5 pieces, stick 4 of them around the perimeter of the base and one in the middle. The adhesives come off cleanly on most surfaces and are reusable, it will solve your tipping problem and you can use larger style hoses like Nammor & KM without worrying about it tipping over.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]It'll save you some money over buying a new base, and you can use them with all types of hookahs[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Hope this helps[/FONT]
