Hookah Parts and Their Functions
A typical Hookah set up contains several constituent parts, each playing an active role in ensuring you get ultimate satisfaction from whatever Shisha flavor that pulls your fancy. A well-placed Hookah contains more aspects of accurate placement than many people seem to give it credit for. Getting the molasses acclimated just right, cleaning and packing the bowl to ensure the new flavors aren't interrupted by the a lingering scent stuck at the bottom of the bowl, and finally, establishing a hole pattern that allows for maximum enjoyment. All these factors need to be kept in mind to ensure that the Shisha smoking process goes as smooth as possible. These constituent parts all have specific functions, as listed:
- The Clay bowl holds the Shisha in place.
- The Bowl Grommet prevents any air from entering the Hookah set up.
- The main part of the hookah, one that allows the transfer of the Shisha from the bowl to the base is referred to as the Shaft.
- The constituent air valve provides a release for the smoke, from the base, when it overflows.
- The ash catcher is particularly self-explanatory - it catches the resultant ash.
- The Glass Base is a kind of housing chamber for the smoke and is usually half-full of water.
- The Charcoal screen forms part of the hookah that prevents the charcoal from coming into direct contact with the Shisha, by functioning as a placeholder.
- Lastly, the hose grommet, and the hose itself function to ensure the hose is airtight, and that the flavored smoke reaches its final destination, as it should.
