General Use FAQ

How much water should I use? You can fill the water chamber between 40% - 70% for use. Overfilling the water chamber can cause "blowback" and water can get through the mouthpiece, and under-filling may result in higher initial resistance. We recommend trying different levels and finding the amount most suitable for your preference. How densely should I pack the heating chamber? You can pack the heating chamber with a significant amount of herb, but we suggest keeping a little bit of wiggle ...

Get the most out of your Hydrology9 (5/22/2017 Updated)

* How much herb to Fill? – Always grind your material It’s depends on what you put in there, but if you feel it becomes difficult to put the stir cap in, or that you feel airflow became restricted, then you probably put too much!Remember to always grind your material before packing the chamber. * Inhalation Method – inhale slowly and steadily The Hydrology9 operates best where you inhale slowly and steadily, seeing about four or more bubbles coming out from the perforated ring.Th...

What are the temperatures in relations to the LED light indicator?

Blue -200C– 392F Greenish Yellow – 210C – 410F Orange – 220C – 428F Purple – 230C – 446F Red – 240C – 464F When power is off press and hold the operational button for 3 second to get battery level Full- Green Half- Blue Low -Red

Airflow feels restricted. Is there anything I can do to improve the airflow?

If Airflow was not an issue in the beginning but became an issue after continuous use, it is due to build up of residues near the chamber. It is often due to build up located in the interior air intake or the rotating stir base. Only those 2 areas come within direct contact with the vaporized substance so that is often the source of the problem. Fortunately, those areas are easily accessible and does not require disassembly. Please refer to procedures below for a quick tune up of your airflow. ...

Any Easter Egg Features?

Why yes ! PARTY MODE When Hydrology9 is in operations, (such as when it is in heating, ready to inhale or in standby) press and hold the Hydrology9 operational button for 3 seconds enters the "PARTY MODE". PARTY MODE starts random colored quick flashing LED light rotation while maintains the previously selected temperature for 10 minutes. Great for passing the Hydrology9 around with a group of friends or random strangers. LAVA LAMP MODE When Hydrology9 is on but not in operations (such ...

There is no LED response OR There is an LED response, but the heater is inactive.

If there is no LED response after pressing the operational button 3 times as per startup instruction, than the device is out of power. Please try to charge as the most basic resolution, but we are sure you already tried that. If the device does have light flashes during charge but looses power immediately after disconnecting from the power source, than it means the battery can no longer hold any power. This happens either because of a defective battery or the operational button was press an...

Some water is leaking from the bottom edge of the glass. How can I prevent this?

Make sure to tighten the mouthpiece assembly enough to close off any gaps between the silicone gasket and the glass. Keep an eye out for leaks while filling, and carefully tighten as necessary if leaking occurs.

What Would Require Disassembly for Cleaning?

Generally speaking, buildup in the air ducts, air duct cover, and water tunnel after extended use warrants disassembly to clear the passages and improve air flow. The main reason for full disassembly is for access to the water tunnel (underneath the silicon insert). Since the vapor passes through the water tunnel filtration after every draw, residue can get stuck after more use. Refer to the "Disassembly" video to see how to access the water tunnel. Otherwise, disassembly is helpful for keepi...
