How to prepare the Hookah?
Preparation. You have now purchased your Hookah and are eager to try it out. Please wash the Hookah thoroughly before using it for the first time. Always wash your hookah thoroughly, to get rid of the old tobacco smell and dirt and never re-use the old water in the vase. Fill the vase with water such that the stem of the hookah is submerged approximately one inch in the water. Some people also put the glass vase in the freezer to cool down for a short time (10 to 15 minutes). Fit the middle section onto the vase. Some hookahs come with a plastic seal that goes in between the vase and the metal argile to keep it from losing smoke or drawing in unwanted air.

Attachment. Place the tray on the argile. The tray is used to place your extra coals on, catch any spillage and as a place to store the hookah tong. Now its time to attach the hose to the Hookah Some hookahs have more than one hose. If you own one of those, either attach them all, or seal the ones that you are not using with a plastic seal (it’s usually supplied with the Hookah). When you are not smoking, always keep your fingers at the end of the hose. This keeps the hose air-tight and allows for better smoke for those who are smoking. Most of the hoses have a plastic part that goes between hookah’s argile and the hose itself. Make sure that this is firmly in place, to keep the end of the hose air tight
Packing the shisha. This is a very important step. When you put the tobacco in the bowl don’t just push it in there. Sprinkle the tobacco in small amounts, to allow air between the tobacco pieces so that the heat from the coal can travel freely through the tobacco. This also allows the tobacco to burn more evenly. Another option is to sprinkle the tobacco in the bowl and then make a small hole in the middle. Place the aluminum foil on top of the bowl. Cut the aluminum foil into squares about 2 inches larger than the bowls diameter. For health reasons the shiny part of the aluminum foil must be face down.
Making holes in the foil. Make holes in the aluminum foil. Use an object with a sharp tip such as pin or toothpick. Start with a small hole in the center and make circles of holes around it. If you want larger amount of smoke in the beginning, you can put one or two deep, larger holes toward the sides of the bowl such that the hole goes through the tobacco. This will let oxygen travel through the tobacco better and help it burn more. The holes are made to let oxygen into the bowl in order to allow the tobacco to burn. So if you put too many holes, the tobacco will burn faster and you might get a burned smell. If you have too few holes, the tobacco won’t burn as well. Lighting the coals and smoking the hookah. Now we can light the coals and put them on the hookah head. Light the coal and place it on the aluminum foil. It is usually best to place the coal slightly to one side of the bowl, and when this coal is burned, place the new coal on the opposite side. And finally we are ready to Smoke the Hookah. In the beginning the hookah may need a little time to start smoking, so be patient.
My hookah doesn’t seem to be smoking right. What do I do?
1. Check your bowl. The most common mistake is packing the shisha too tightly. Make sure that you break the shisha apart and lightly sprinkle it into the bowl to the top. Don’t fill it past the top because you’ll be packing the shisha when you cover it with a metal screen or foil.

2. Check your charcoal. If the charcoal is covered with ash, there may not be enough heat getting to the shisha. Use your tongs to tap the charcoal ash off into your hookah tray and place the red charcoal back on your head.

3. Check your gaskets. Make sure that all of the components of the hookah are fitting nicely together. A snug fit will make the smoke flow more efficiently. You may check for a burnt gasket. Some hookahs expose the gasket and are easily burnt by charcoal that is moved around in the tray.
4. Check your hoses. If you have multiple hoses, make sure that all ends are plugged properly. For example, if you have two or three hoses on your hookah and there is only one person smoking, you’ll need to remove the hoses and use rubber stoppers or tape to block the hose holes.
