Steps to setting up a hookah:

1

Fill the glass base with water and ice cubes. Ice provides thicker clouds and a more enjoyable smoke session. The down stem must be submerged about an inch (38mm) under water.

2

Place the shorter end of the hose into the hose port. This will be what transports the smoke from the hookah to you.

3

Fill the bowl with your Eternal Smoke shisha. For help with packing your bowl read our guide here.

4

Place the shisha packed bowl on the hookah. Make sure it is securely placed on there.

5

Add foil paper to the bowl and create small holes. Use a push pin for the perfect size hole. 

6

Using tongs, light a corner of the coal. Set the coal on the foil paper and let it heat for 5 minutes. Grab the hose and enjoy!
