How much water to pour in the Shisha flask?
The pleasure of smoking it largely depends on how well the hookah is prepared. There are many nuances to consider, including the amount of water (or other liquid) that you pour into the nargile flask. In order to unambiguously answer this question, it is necessary to take into account the features of the device, the size and diameter of the shaft, as well as many other points that we will consider in this article.
Why do you need water in a hookah?
Any liquid poured into a nargile flask is a filter. If you want, you can use not only water for this purpose, but also milk, juices or alcoholic beverages (most often choose wine, cognac and absinthe ). But it is cold water that is most popular, because it has a neutral smell and does not affect the taste of the tobacco mix, hammered into the bowl. In addition, it has the best filtering properties — water cleanses smoke from nicotine (up to 90%), as well as phenols and small solid particles (up to 50%).
Another advantage of a hookah on water is lower indicators of the carcinogenic potential of smoke (carcinogens are substances that contribute to the formation of malignant cells) than their counterparts on wine or milk. During smoking, smoke gets into the hose, and a small amount of harmful substances also remains on its walls. After each lighting of the nargile, the filter fluid should be changed.
Where does the smoke come from?
Let's take a step-by-step look at the process of smoke formation in nargil:
Keep in mind that the amount of water in the flask affects not only the quality of smoke filtration, but also the draft.
Why do I need a hookah flask?
In many ways, the pleasure of smoking nargile depends on three main parts-the flask, the bowl and the hookah shaft. Also, an equally important role is played by a hose, mouthpiece and other accessories. They should only be purchased in trusted stores that offer high-quality and reliable products (for example, a Nanosmoke hose and a Nanosmoke mouthpiece will ensure comfortable hookah smoking).
A flask is a special container in which water or other liquid (milk, wine, etc.) is poured. This liquid acts as a filter for hookah smoke that appears in the shaft when a person takes a puff.
As mentioned above, water (or any other liquid) filters out most harmful impurities. In addition, it is the hookah flask that is responsible for optimal humidification and cooling of smoke during smoking. In the bowl, it heats up to almost 400 degrees, which can negatively affect the lungs, so the flask, hose and tube help to reduce the temperature. For the same purpose, it is recommended to use cold water (in some cases — with the addition of ice).
How deep should the shaft be immersed in the liquid?
The tube of the mine is placed in a flask, in which further filtration of smoke takes place. At the same time, if you pour a lot of water and submerge the tube too deeply, the draft will become very heavy. If the filter fluid is too small, the cleaning process will worsen, and more harmful substances will enter the human body.
Professionals recommend submerging the shaft in water for two to three centimeters with the traditional nargile device. Some modern models of hookahs have certain refueling features that you may not know about. That is why it is better for beginners to purchase classic models that will not create difficulties and will allow you to get a lot of pleasant sensations while smoking.
