1. Fill your glass hookah base with cold water about half full. After you insert the hookah shaft into the glass base,
the metal tube should be submerged approx. 1-2 inches below the surface of the water.
2. Place the round metal charcoal tray over the top of the hookah stem. This tray is for keeping hot coals and for
3. Place the rubber bowl seal onto the top of the stem. This will help keep an airtight fit for your bowl. Next place
the clay bowl onto the top of the stem.
4. Insert the hose into the hose port of the stem using the small rubber seal. The seal will ensure that an airtight
fit is created.
5. Next, you will want to test that your hookah is airtight before you begin smoking from it. To do this, simply place
the palm of your hand over the empty tobacco bowl while sucking from the hose. If it is airtight, you will feel a
suction pull on the hand similar to when you place your hand over a vacuum cleaner hose.
Note: If it
is not airtight, you will need to check the seals at the glass base, bowl and hose connections for air leaks.
6. Once your hookah is airtight, you are ready to load your favorite molasses tobacco. Using your metal charcoal
pincers, place enough tobacco to fill the bowl to the top.
Note: We recommend sprinkling the tobacco into the bowl rather than packing it in. This way, you increase the amount of airflow through the tobacco and lessen the work required to draw the smoke from the hose.
