Re: purge valve
I went to try to purge my hookah after adding the straw as you said and it seemed to work fine. Much of the smoke came out, not all, but most which is pretty much what I was hoping for. I then decided to be an a-hole and I purged the shit out of it and water came up my stem, ruined the bowl I had, and destroyed my LAST two coals. I have never done that before, is my hookah supposed to allow me to purge so hard that water goes up the stem?
