How to Setup a Hookah
How to Setup a Hookah. Step 1: Assemble Hookah Stem, Pressure Release Valve, Vase & Hose – Test Airflow
Start each hookah session with an airflow test to confirm that your shisha pipe is in working order. Assemble the stem with included pressure release valve making sure the ball bearing is inside and moving freely. Connect the stem to the vase using a vase grommet and then attach the hookah hose with the needed grommet as well. Make sure each hookah part is secure. While covering the top of the hookah stem with your hand, inhale from the hose. You should get very little to no air meaning you have an air-tight hookah. If you are getting air, check grommets for a secure fit.
Step 2: Fill Hookah Vase with Water
Once airflow is confirmed, detach the vase and fill with water so that when reconnected the water covers one (1) inch of the inserted down stem. Securely reconnect the hookah base with a rubber grommet. Now is a good time to set the ashtray on the hookah stem as well.
