Troubleshoot Guide

Is your hookah smoking too light?

  • Please check for air leaks on the hookah, this can be done by plugging the top of the stem with your thumb and drawing air through the hookah. If you do experience a leak, please contact us via e-mail at
  • If there is no leak, please try using additional coals with your pack, as there may not be enough heat on the bowl.
  • If the hookah becomes harsh with additional coals, please follow our packing guide:

Is your hookah smoking too harsh?

LED Stand not turning on?

Hose falling out?

  • Dry the inside and outside of both the tubing and handle of the hose, and try reinserting, this should provide additional friction and help keep the hose in place
  • If issue persists, you can try cutting off 1 inch of silicon from the tubing, as it softens over time, allowing the newer more rigid silicon to keep the hose in place

Leaking base?

  • If your base is leaking, please contact us via e-mail at
  • TEMPORARY FIX: While you wait for help from our support team, you can use a hobby grade Acrylic Glue to fill in the issue corner, allowing you to fix the leak

Silicon taste?

  • Clean all silicon parts of the hookah with lemon juice and warm water mixture
  • Allow hookah to be smoked for 2-4 sessions, with strong neutral flavours like mint
  • If issue persists, please contact our support team at


  • Our hookahs are extremely easy to clean with warm water and gentle soap. 
  • Avoid washing any components with harsh chemicals. Similarly, do not leave any parts soaked for an extended period of time.
  • Avoid putting your hookah or any metal components in the dishwasher as this can cause discolouration. 
  • Do not scrub the surfaces with the rough side of a sponge or using a steel wool.
