How To Find The Right Base For Your Hookah?
When you are looking for a hookah base, it is important to find the right one for you. There are many types of bases available, so it's difficult to know which one to choose. In this blog post, we help you decide which hookah base is right for your hookah!
What is a hookah base?
A hookah base is the bottom part of a hookah that holds the water. The base can come in many different sizes, shapes, and colors to suit your needs. Some bases have additional features such as LED lights or built-in ashtrays.
The hookah base material
The most common hookah base is a glass hookah base. Glass hookah bases are usually very sturdy, and they come in many colors and shapes. These bases can add an extra touch of style to your hookah setup, and they are easy to clean. However, glass hookah bases can be fragile if dropped or knocked over, so they may not be the best choice if you plan to move your hookah around a lot.
Why is it essential to find a proper hookah base?
When smoking hookah, it is essential to have an excellent base. A proper hookah base will ensure that your smoking experience is optimal. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why a good hookah base is so important.
The first reason a good hookah base is essential is for flavor retention. The base of the hookah helps to trap the flavor molecules so that they are not dispersed into the air. This means that you will taste the full flavor of your tobacco with each puff. A good hookah base also helps to cool the smoke before it reaches your throat. This makes for a much more pleasant smoking experience.
Another reason a good hookah base is essential is for aesthetics. A good hookah base will make your hookah setup look professional and polished. This can be important when smoking with friends or family members. A well-made hookah base will also last longer than one that is made poorly.
Finally, a good hookah base helps to prevent accidents. A properly fitting hookah base will make it much less likely that your hookah will tip over and spill water everywhere. This is especially important if you have an expensive or delicate hookah setup.
To sum it up, there are many reasons why it is essential to find a proper hookah base when smoking hookah. The right hookah base can make all the difference in terms of flavor retention, aesthetics, and preventing accidents. When choosing a hookah base, be sure to select one that is well made and fits your specific hookah setup properly.
Why replace your hookah base?
If you're a hookah lover, chances are you've had the same base for years. And why not? It's not like they wear out, right? WRONG. Just like any other part of your hookah, most bases need to be replaced from time to time. Especially those that are made from inferior quality materials. Here's why:
They get scratched up
Even if you take good care of your hookah, over time, the base can get scratched up. Whether it's from accidentally dropping it or just from normal wear and tear, those scratches can affect the way your hookah smokes. If you've noticed that your hookah isn't smoking as well as it used to, replacing the base is a good place to start.
They get dirty
Let's face it: bases get dirty. No matter how often you wash your hookah, residues from the tobacco are going to build up in the base. And those residues can affect the taste of your smoke. If you're noticing that your hookah doesn't taste as good as it used to, it might be time for a new base. However, this is not the case with Kaloud hookahs. These hookahs feature wide opening bases and they can be fully disassembled which makes them easy to clean without having to replace the base.
Replacing your hookah base is a quick and easy way to breathe new life into your old friend. And who knows? You might even find that you like the way a new base smokes better than your old one.
How to identify the right base for your hookah?
Each hookah set up is different and will require a hookah base that fits properly. To identify the right hookah base for your setup, measure the height and width of your hookah stem to get an accurate measurement.
You will also need to consider the weight of your hookah, as this can affect which hookah bases are suitable. Once you have these measurements, you can begin to look for hookah bases that match these measurements.
Once you have found hookah bases that fit your criteria, you should also look at the design and materials used. For instance, our Krysalis sets are unique in style, design and materials used. Each hookah set comes with a matching hookah base made, and no other hookah base will match the style of Krysalis hookahs. Their base differs from our Calix sets. In the same vein, other hookah setups are likely to require hookah bases with unique designs.
It is also important to choose a hookah base that is made from sturdy and durable materials so it can handle regular use without breaking or cracking.
Finally, look at any additional features that the hookah base may have. Some hookah bases come with built-in ashtrays or LED lights for an added bit of flare. If you are looking for something simpler and more basic, check out hookah bases that don't have any extra features.
How to replace a Kaloud hookah base?
Well, hookah bases in Kaloud hookahs differ slightly from other hookah bases. The hookah base is divided into two parts, the hookah base and the hookah base inner vessel. However, this does not mean you need to replace both of them. You only need to replace each of them when they become worn or in case you break them.
To replace the hookah base in a Kaloud hookah:
- Disassemble the entire hookah. This includes unscrewing the hookah base from the hookah stem, as well as removing the hookah base inner vessel.
- Once everything is disassembled, screw the inner vessel to the outer dome.
- Then, plug the outer dome into the outer vessel.
- Plug the hookah stem into your Samsaris bowl.
- Finally, plug your hookah stem and hose to your Kaloud hookah.
Congratulations! You've now successfully replaced the hookah base or inner vessel in a Kaloud hookah. Have fun smoking with friends!
Note: If you think you need a new base for your Kaloud hookah, don't forget to find an original one in our e-shop.

Should you replace your hookah base?
Of course, you should not keep smoking with a hookah base that is cracked or damaged. However, this could be a sign that you need to stop using inferior hookah bases and upgrade to one made from higher quality materials. It could also mean that you need to replace parts of the hookah base, such as the hose and tray, as these parts are more prone to wear and tear.
Is it worth replacing all these hookah components that often?
While you should not use a damaged hookah, this does not mean that you have to replace the hookah base and other parts frequently. Investing in a hookah with higher quality materials that last will help save you from having to replace hookah components often. Additionally, a hookah with built-in features can also make your hookah experience even better.
In the end, it all comes down to preference and lifestyle. If you don't mind spending extra money on hookah components or if you are looking for something with a bit of extra flair, then go ahead and replace your hookah base.
