Eureka!!! It Works!!

If you remember , in previous posts I wrote about the reasons for using a diffuser on the end of the hookah metal shaft on the bottom where it goes into the water.Happy Halloween

(Look in the blog search under “diffuser” to see great photos of how it actually works in¬† the water and other info). So why am I writing again on the subject? Well, I did write that I’d taken the black tin shaft off a BBQ lighter after I’d refilled it a number of times but the flint was bad! I put it on the end of a mini hookah shaft, which to my opinion¬† are quite short anyhow and barely reach the water level, which means that you have very little room for the smoke in the bowl. It fit the mini hookah shaft perfectly and there is a big ¬†hole at the end of its shaft and holes on 3 sides of the shaft all which make smaller bubbles, better pull and its a quit smoke!¬†¬† But would it work on a large hookah? I used up the¬† butane in one of my lighters, refilled it and waited until the flint was ground down and wouldn’t¬† work. Tonight I tried it on the very large hookah I have. It would not slide in to the shaft, but like I’d mentioned, they all have a slit on the tin on the top of the shaft where it is connected to the¬† plastic of the lighter itself. I put that in edgewise, and it contracted into the hookah shaft perfect fit. When I put the whole apparatus into the water, it hit the bottom of the bowl even though I used one of the short lighter barrel shafts. Like¬† this one exactly : ¬†Go to fullsize image¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†¬†¬† ¬†Go to fullsize image



This is the best kind to get, and cheapest also, not neccesarilyfrom this compant though :Now¬† upon placing it in the shaft it did hit the glass bottom, so I took it out and pushed it in just a few more milimeters. It smokes perfectly, now I don’t have to put in new drinking straws and replace like before. Its permanent! For cleaning the shaft I’ll need to take it out, but its strong material. Keep a few around as the lighters finish!Don’t forget the Bubbly lights for your hookah , you can buy at

  1. Hi again its Hookah 1,

    I removed another a BBQ Lighter black tin shaft (see above post) as a diffuser, and attatched it to a junior sized hookah.It went OVER the shaft a bit more snug than it did on my mini hookah. As I mentioned I used the same BBQ Lighter type shaft on a very big hookah and the tin shaft of the lighter fit snugly INSIDE the hookah metal shaft. Now all 3 size hookahs have permanent diffusers.
