Question Leila portable hookah question

With being my first post, figured I'd start with a hi!

I just bought a Leila, and must say that I do love it. I use it for personal sessions, travel, and just for walking around the nightclub I work at. I have a Mya Colossus that works great for multiple people.

My question, for those of you that have a Leila, is how do you keep water from getting in the hose? This seems to be my only problem. Every time I take a pull, there seems to be water in the hose. It's a bit annoying. Anybody have this problem? And were you able to fix it?

Thanks!

well i don't have one but i did have a pumpkin and the steam is the same way. Less water in the base is the only way. The steam doesn't need to be all the way in the water only about a half a inch. I hope this helps. and welcome to the forums

If I put in any less water, the smoke wont filter out. The stem is only about half an inch in.

try putting more water in and keep pulling until all the water comes out, this might work.

think adding more water will make you suck more water in

Try putting less water like said in a earlier post,

It would also help if you take a picture of the hookah set up, and then mayb someone might be able to help more

well if you got a dud, maybe you should call H-S...

otherwise, you gotta find the line, try dumping out little by little, then mark the line when it works.

You can also try extended the stem w/ a straw or something and using less water then.

I've always filled it to the rubber washer like in the instructions and never had this problem. the way it's deisgned it loosk like the only way yuo'd get water in it is from either filling it up to the hose port or little bubbles every now and then, maybe you're pulling too hard?

Well, I work there as the hookah guy, so it's kind of advertising. I used to walk around with the Mya Collossus, which is about 4 ft. tall, well, I'd walk and set it down everywhere. I put in a tad bit less water today, and it seemed to do better. And I'll try rigging something to fix it.

We have just purchased a Leila and we love it, fortunately we haven't had this problem but, like necco, we have followed the instructions and only ever fill it to below the red ring on the stem. Glad it is better now.
