What size hookah should I consider?
Shisha smoking has long been a social group activity and is something to consider when choosing your hookah. Any size hookah can be used by an individual smoker, but the size and weight of a large hookah, makes it more convenient for large groups or a hookah party. Large Hookahs (28 to 35 inches) are generally constructed with wider tubing rather than smaller hookahs to keep the hookah in proportion and are better to support larger groups. Medium Hookahs (21 to 27 inches) can support groups of three to five people and are wonderful for solo smoking. Small Hookahs (20 inches and smaller) are best suited for solo smoking or groups of three or less. The compact size of small hookahs makes them easy to store or carry along. At Pars Market in Columbia,Maryland you can find all the supplies needed for your hookah and many more that would surprise you how much Hookah, Shisha selection we stock in our store!
How many hoses?
The number of hoses to have on your hookah comes down to a matter of personal choice. As long as the coal is kept hot and the water pipe is kept tight, there is no difference in the quality of smoking from a one-hose hookah or a four-hose hookah but one smokes at a time. All of our multi-hose hookahs come with complete with hose caps and rubber stem plugs so that extra hose connections that are not in use can be sealed off.
How often should I clean my hookah?
The water in the glass vase should be emptied after every smoking session. Remember that the water in the glass vase acts as the filter for the smoke, so we recommend that you wash out the glass vase after every use. Clean the metal stem with the cleaning brush and very carefully funnel clear hot water through the hose on a regular basis. Never use soap to clean your hookah, as it may contaminate the taste of the smoke. Both the metal stem and the hookah hose should be completely dry before smoking with them again.
Small Bowl, Large Bowl and New Vortex Bowl
The smoke is too harsh, what am I doing wrong?
This could be a number of reasons. You may have too much coal on your bowl and you may have burned your shisha. If you remove some of the coal and the smoke is still too harsh then you have indeed burned your shisha and will have to re-pack a new bowl. Also be sure to change the water in your hookah after each session to keep your smoke tasting fresh.
I’m not getting enough smoke, what am I doing wrong?
Most likely, the reason you are not getting enough smoke is because your hookah is not air tight or enough water. Double check the connections between the metal shaft / glass base, metal shaft / hose, and metal shaft / clay bowl. If you are still not getting enough smoke, it might be because you don’t have enough coal on your bowl or that your bowl is clogged with shisha. Make sure not to make the wholes too big on the aluminum foil on your bowl. Also, make sure you are not packing too much flavor. You don’t have to pack it too tightly as this will affect the amount of smoke. Make sure water does not come threw the hose, just enough to make bubbles in the hookah. Any problems, Please Contact us at Pars Market or bring it in.

The best way to enjoy Zaatar is to blend it with good quality cold pressed olive oil in a bowl to the consistency of pesto, and then whenever you feel like a hit, just stir the mixture and spread it on fresh or toasted bread and top it with fresh tomatoes, white cheeses, organic eggs or anything Mediterranean for that matter.

|Beautiful Double Hose Hookah at Pars Market|
The Wonder of The Hookah
A Hookah is a water pipe that is used mainly by Middle Eastern countries for smoking tobacco, mainly flavored tobacco, such as Shisha. Traditional hookahs are elaborately decorated with gold or brass and often sport ornate carvings and designs. They are traditionally made from glass but can also be made from plastic or even. They have a long stem with a large Bowl at the top where the tobacco is placed.
From the stem are several long hoses that enable several people to enjoy the hookah at once. Water is placed in the stem and, when the bowl of tobacco is lit, the smoke is then filtered through the water and into the lungs of each person inhaling from each hose.

It is extremely important that you know how to check a Hookah before you purchase it, because no matter what country it comes from, there is a certain percentage of hookahs that are defective.
Start with the bowl on top. Inspect for chips and an ovular opening where it connects to your hookah. If the the opening of the bowl is ovular, it might not seal tightly when sitting on top of the hookah. Next, look for obstructions in the holes of the bowl. Sometimes, during the glazing process, the holes are covered up or clogged. You will also want to make sure that the bowl fits snugly. You should be able to jerk the hookah a little bit and not have any movement on the bowl. If it does seems to wobble a bit, try to turn it in a clockwise fashion as you push it down over the gasket.
Take the hose off and plug one end with your thumb as you blow through the other end. Listen carefully for any air leaks. If there are any air leaks, the hose has a hole in it. Now, unplug one end and point it at a bare patch of skin that is not on your face (you may get a chunk of rust right into your eye). You should feel a good amount of air coming out. If the amount of air coming out feels weak, the hose has obstructions.
Check the stem for breaks or damage by holding the stem up like a looking glass and pointing the opposite end toward the light.
Unscrew the check release valve to make sure it has a ball bearing.
To check the air flow of the rest of the Hookah, make sure it is assembled with the stem, vase, vase gasket, hose, and hose gasket. You will need to remove the bowl and bowl gasket if it is on top of the stem. Use your hand or a piece of cloth to clog the top of the hookah stem. Suck through the hose and listen carefully for air leaks. You should not be able to take any air in. Common air leaks occur near the hose port around the weld lines. With the top of the hookah stem still clogged, blow into the hose. Air should be expelled out of the check release valve.
Make sure the vase is not wobbly and that the top opening is not ovular. Also, look for cracks and chips in the glass.
