Default What is the Autoseal System?

If no one minds that I ask -
What is an Auto Seal? Is it the rubberized lining of some of the hard wear?

Auto-Seal refers to the hose connections. An auto seal hookah has a check valve in each hose connection (like purge valve on single hose hookahs). What this does is allow you to have a multi-hose hookah that does not require other people to plug the hose while someone else smokes or require a ruber stopper to close of an unused connection.

My Mya auto-seal consists of a Ball Bearing that sits in the bottom of the hose attachment that connects to the Heart. When you actively hit the hose, the bearing draws up and allows smoke to pass from the heart into your mouth/lungs. If you are not hitting it, the bearing rests and when others draw, the bearing seals the other openings.

Does that make sense?

Whats funny is, i was playing with the valve on the other side while i was taking a pull. The bearing shot out and then I realized what that whole thing was about lol. Stop the water from shooting up the stem is my best guess. And then i ran around like Rocky chasing that chicken lol trying to catch up to the bearing. lol

That's what the purge valve is for on a single hose hookah... If you are smoking out of an autoseal then there is really no way to purge it because when you blow out, the seal on your hose just becomes tighter.

can auto seals be bought without buying a hookah or would it be something that only came with a hookah?

It is not really a separate device... it is the way that the hose receptacle is made... with a ball inside and a thing to catch it. So no, you have to get a hookah with autoseal if you want it, but I would definitely not suggest it.
