Default New base, need help!!!

So i just broke my 2nd base in a month. The first one was the original vase that came with my KM. The second one was this one, Im looking to get another, but the last one was way to short. I think I need a 14 inch, but I cant find one over 12. Any suggestions??

I think that one should fit fine on a KM I'm selling a 12.5-13" green tower base if you were to be interested but I don't think 12" would be small. 12" should fit any hookah including KM's. good luck!

Dude. If height is a problem, get a tower vase. http://www.thehookah.com/cone-leaf-hookah-vase.html


EDIT: These are better http://ultimatehookah.com/Handmade-c...t-Base-HCB.htm

Something like this would work as well

why don't you measure your downstem and see what size you actually need?

Why are you breaking your bases? is it clumsiness or accident, or are you doing something that will induce thermal shock, like putting ice in the base, trying to freeze the water in the base, or trying to clean it with boiling water? Have you deep-fried any chicken wings in it?

If you've just had a bad run of luck with drunk friends or whatever, it is what it is. If you're doing something that's causing them to break, that's another story. Two bases in a month is a lot of breakage.

In general, you should be smoking with room-temperature water, and cleaning with warm water.

The first one was my friends fault, he put it down to hard on a hard floor. The second one was my fault, I pulled the stem out to roughly and the ball on the end smashed against the inside and the base shattered :/ THANKS FOR ALL THE SUGGESTIONS THO!!!

Sorry to hear. You have to treat your hookah like a woman. You have to be gentle when lifting them up ;-) In the future remember easy does it! lol
