Hookah Parts

How many hookah parts are in a single hookah? Even if you clean your hookah after every use, you still might not be familiar with each and every part. However, proper assembly is critical to enjoying hookah smoking to the fullest, and it all starts with this basic knowledge. So, don't worry - we at SouthSmoke.com are here to guide you through the entire anatomy of a hookah, detailing all the hookah parts from the bottom of the vase to the tip of the bowl.

Anatomy of a Hookah - The Essential Hookah Parts

A hookah is made up of more hookah parts than you'd think. On average, there are nine primary hookah parts you need to know. Whatever the size or number of hoses, most hookah pipes will resemble this layout.

On top is the hookah bowl (A). This is where your shisha is placed. It is usually made from clay, ceramic, porcelain, or even stainless steel. The bowl connects to the shaft via a bowl grommet (B). This provides a tight, secure fit and ensures no smoke escapes through any unwanted gaps. Beneath that is the hookah tray(C), which catches ash as it falls down from the coals. These three parts makes up the top-most hookah parts.

Next is the hookah shaft (D). Usually made from metals such as copper, aluminum, brass, and even stainless steel (or glass, in the case of Vapor Hookah’s all-glass hookahs), the shaft is the centerpiece of the hookah. It connects the hose, bowl, base, and tray together. Attached to the shaft is a one-way hookah valve (E), which connects the hose to the stem. A stem can have multiple valves if it is a multi-hose hookah to accommodate more smokers. At the end of the stem is the hookah vase (F), a glass or acrylic bottom that holds water, which filtrates the hookah tobacco.

You smoke through a hookah hose (G), which attaches onto the valve. Other parts include the base grommet (H), which attaches the vase to the shaft, and finally the hose grommet (I), which attaches the hose to the vase. Both grommets are used to prevent smoke from escaping while smoking.

Hookah Assembly

Half the work of knowing how to assemble a hookah is having all the right hookah parts. After that, it's all a matter of piecing them together in the order we have described above or laid out in our hookah diagram. Be sure you have every part you need when you piece together your hookah! Knowing how to properly build a hookah ensures you'll have flawless smoke sessions every time.
