Ice to cool it down on summer nights. Other than that, it's kinda redundant here. I live in Minnesota, and when it's not Winter, it's summer. The base stays cold due to the outside temp. And yes, I do smoke outside in the winter, on occasion. My friends and I will smoke in a garage in the winter. No insulation, so it's a tad bit chilly.

Depends. I just do whatever I feel like at the time. Haven't noticed much (if any) difference.

I'd say the ice takes a little bit of the flavor away but I kind of like that if its a stronger flavor. And if your having troubles keeping a particular shisha cool than ice may be worth it. So I don't normally do it unless the situation calls for it.

Using ice in the water makes the smoke harsher, it's best to just use standard tap water. I think the ice takes away from the flavor a bit too, I did some experimenting with this before, all the test I did with different flavors showed me standard tap water smokes best.

I find that room temperature water helps get the most flavor for me.

I use ice with every hookah. I've tried it a few times without and I just didn't seem to enjoy it as much. The flavor was about the same, but the temp of the smoke was WAY cooler. I could feel the cold as I exhaled across my hand. As far as thin smoke...you be the judge.

NO Ice!!
All it does is cause more work for me.

If you need it to cool down the smoke, then you're not doing it right haha!

If you use ice in a ice chamber, try this http://www.saharasmoke.com/store/cat...tml#icechamber ,it will probably work well in the vase too.
