What Mya do you have? Every Mya I've come across does not have a welded purge valve. They're threaded into the chamber and sealed with an o-ring just like the hose ports are. Your o-ring may just be bad.

The bad purging however is because of the common chamber design. You can vastly improve it by making a purge tube out of brass or aluminum. You could also make a ghetto/temporary solution using a straw with one of those bendy necks.
