Things to check when Shisha is too Heavy:
Before settling with the Shisha and putting the charcoals on there are a few things you should check which would disable all factors of heaviness.
 
  1. Check the water level, too much water will make a Shisha feel impossible to smoke, So here’s what to do to get the perfect amount of water in your shisha glass vase. Firstly you do this by filling the glass bowl with water, most cases filling up 70% of the Glass bowl works right. Attaching the stem and taking a pull from the hole on the stem where the hose goes in to, (Don’t use the pipe to do this as it could be the reason the shisha is heavy), keep on emptying or adding water until you reach the perfect pull then mark a slight line on the glass which will remind you of the level the water should be filled to the next time round.
  2. Check the amount of flavor in the shisha bowl/head. In most cases, heavy shishas are often caused by the extra amount of flavor stuffed inside a shisha head. Once you have gathered the flavor/s you desire the next step will be to sprinkle them in slowly making sure there is enough room for air to circulate from the base of the shisha head to the top of the foil where the coal sits. Poking the right amount of holes on the top is a common mistake people often make, so make sure you cover the head evenly with pin sized holes.
  3. Check for any blockages, there are many areas in a shisha, which a blockage could cause it to be very hard to smoke. Some of these are, the mouth tip if you are using one, this could be damaged or not designed well so try without the mouth tip to see if there is an improvement, if not check the hose by blowing into the one end and testing the consistency of the air coming out the other side, you could also cover one end of the hose to check if there are any rips or damages which allows air to leak, a perfect shisha is a airtight one.
 
Secondly, Here are things to check when Shisha is too Light:
 
  1. Check any damages in the Shisha hose/ pipe, do this by blocking one end of the hose and blowing out the other, if any air escapes this is one of the reasons or the reason your shisha isn’t performing well.
  2. Not enough water,  not enough water will make the shisha feel impossible to smoke, so here’s what to do to get the perfect amount of water in your shisha glass vase. Firstly you do this by filling the glass bowl with water, most cases filling up 70% of the Glass bowl works right. Attaching the stem and taking a pull from the hole on the stem where the hose goes in to, (Don’t use the pipe to do this as it could be the reason the shisha is light), keep on emptying or adding water until you reach the perfect pull, then mark a slight line on the glass which will remind you of the level the water should be filled to the next time round.
  3. Not enough Coal, inconsistency with coal is usually the reason shishas begin to lighten; changing the coals every 30 minutes (time may differ depending on the type of coal used) should solve this problem. Check our store for the greatest coal at the cheapest price to put an end to your charcoal worries.
  4. The attachments are not airtight, things like the shisha stem and glass vase, the Shisha stem and clay head bowl, the shisha stem and pipe should be 100% airtight, find in our store the greatest rubber material grommets, which will stop air from escaping. And for a quick home made solution, get a strip of tissue to fit the area you want to cover, drip some water onto the tissue and wrap it around the area where the air is coming out from, then put it back in.
