Default Not a lot of smoke in the base



so I'm getting a good amount of smoke and everything just fine but my base just doesn't look like it's holding a ton of smoke. I'm using a platinum hookah superchief mini and 2 coals in the lotus I have a paper towel grommet on the bowl and taped up the screw on part with electric tape just to be sure and I put a wet paper towel around the part where the bowl wiener attatches to the stem. I took of the purge valve and put my finger over it just to be sure but no difference. Any ideas or does this look alright to you guys?

What are you smoking? Sometimes it doesn't look full when functioning properly.

Nice base...

I get the same results with my jumbo vase. I can fill a room with clouds but the vase always has some room at the top.

caotain Zach, I know exactly what ur problem is... There isn't one cuz u said u get great plumes of smoke! Lol. No but really... I said this in a few others posts as well, I'll let u in a my big secret!... When I watch vids of other people setting up hookahs , they poke way to o many dam holes in the foil, and everyone always seems so conserned about this all mighty "optimal" airflow, and they ravage that tin foil to the point where they should just forget the foil and go Raw charcoal. Try less holes, but slightly bigger holes, I use wooden shishcabob stick. Try to use 40 or less holes. I have this problem and I find its do to a large vase, if u have too much airflow, u suck the smoke out of the vase before it gets to fill with smoke, larger the vase, larger the volume. Less holes will allow more smoke to build up in ur vase and chamber before u suck it out, sorry I take This stud way too seriously!!
