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.

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 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.

A hookah is a device used for smoking flavorful tobacco, allowing for purification of the smoke by using a water basin before inhalation. The source of hookahs is in the Middle East, where one can still find the best quality hookahs in the world. Hookahs are made in a straightforward method with basic components.
The primary parts of a hookah are pictured in the picture. The end of the body is immersed in a water jar through which the smoke generated from burning tobacco passes. The smoke is stored in an air chamber above the water after it is purified by the water. Another positive side effect of the smoke going through the water is that it is cooled down to a temperature much more comfortable for the lungs. The hose is located on the top left section of the water jar. It is not fully displayed here, but the hose generally stretches 1 or more meters. The smoker smokes through the hose by puffing on it. After inhaling, the smoker exhales clean and aromatic smoke. Hookahs are generally smoked in a social, group setting where smokers can enjoy each others’ company.

The term “hookah” hails from the Indian “huqqa”, a word that originated around the 1500’s when the hookah was first invented by a Persian physician, Abul-Fath Gilani. He developed a system to pass smoke with a water basin to purify the smoke as he was concerned with the health risks of smoking. But, it is said that even before he invented it, hookah existed in other parts of Persia. Anyhow, hookah began to gain popularity in the nearby lands of Pakistan and Iran from where it came to Turkey and Lebanon. Once the hookah reached Turkey, its fame surged among the Turkish elite, and it quickly spread through Lebanon and Syria to the rest of the Middle East and into northern Africa. Today, it is being used in almost every country of the globe.
As it traveled from Persia to the rest of the globe, the hookah gained a lot of names.
Nargile (also pronounced Argilee) – Mainly used in Italy, Turkey and Israel
Narguile – used in Spain
Lula (or lulava) – used in Albania, Bosnia, Herzegovina
Sheesha – used by nations in Northern Africa from Morocco to Egypt, and the Arab nations in the Persian Gulf such as Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia
