How to mount hookahs
It has happened to many people that, when they give them a hookahThey do not know where to place each part, becoming a headache. So that this does not happen, from Grow Shop Cogolandia We teach you to mount hookahs so that you can enjoy the best moments in the company of your colleagues.
First, when we open the box, we must ensure that all parts are in perfect condition before starting to assemble.
Hookahs (or shishas) are made up of the following pieces:
- Ash dish
- Metal base with rubber to adjust the bowl
- Hose connector
- Hookah body
- Air valve
- Screw closure with rubber
When we make sure everything is in order, we will get to work.
Steps to mount hookahs
Step 1: The body of the shisha
The first step in assembling a hookah is to place its body (number 8) on the glass base (number 1). Other hookahs may be made of a material other than glass and we may have to unscrew the body to place the ashtray.
Step 2: The plate
Next, we will place the ash plate (number 3) on the body of the hookah. This piece is used, basically, to deposit the metal tweezers or the coal ash.
Step 3: Screw the base
The next step to mount a hookah is to screw the metal base with rubber (number 4) to be able to adjust the bowl so that it does not fall. This base is important as it keeps the bowl fixed
Step 4: The bowl
Next, we will take the bowl (number 2) and place it on the metal base with rubber.
Step 5: The hose
Depending on the tubes that the hookah has, we will have one or more hoses. In this case, our shisha consists of a single tube that we will place in the hose connector (number 7).
With this, we will have our hookah mounted. The next thing is to fill the water base to make it work. Next we will place the tobacco in the bowl and cover it with aluminum foil. We will make some small holes in the paper.
Finally, we will place the burning coal on the foil. You will see how it is consumed slowly so you can smoke for a longer time.
