I believe my hookah was chinese made. You saw the one i made in my other thread. The hose port is open to the inside of the "junction" part that goes on top of the vase, and the other port has a ball bearing inside with a cap that screws on top.
So i understand a traditional setup will purge MUCH better than mine, but i was trying to figure out the draw aspect. And if the hole that leads to the hose part is reasonably small, thats why a KM could be superior correct?
correct, the wider the diameter, the better the draw, other factors such as hose choice will vary results as well.
