Default I hate one of my Nours!!!

Yes you heard me. One of my Nours have been bugging me lately. Yes it is a real Nour. The purge valve does not unscrew and I cannot purge it. I need a solution. There is no way for me to clean the ball if I can't unscrew the valve =[

I'm wondering if a rubber strap wrench would work, or if the metal would be too slick... Those are extremely cheap and I assume you don't want to scratch anything.

That could be your cheapest solution since they cost probably three dollars or so. I'm not expert on tools or hookahs, but just an option to ponder.

If you cannot purge cos it's stuck, relax lol happens to my nour as well.. get a paper clip, get it into a "straight" shape, put the paperclip through the purge hole and push until the ball comes lose.. that's all

Do this, I dont think its rusted tight, its probably all the black gunk, get a tea *** boil some water and put ur hookah in the sink and turn it upside down so you can see the purge hole, take the boiling water and pour it in the purge hole and try to loosen it, and it should work.

Sorry guys I won't go to the dark side with KM (that one is for you photolinger) I am not satisfied with my Tri metal kM!

If you can do it, try spraying a little bitty bit of something like WD-40 into the threads of the purge valve and hopefully that will help loosen it up. Rinse it well!

ehhh id stay away from penetrating catalysts (the best one I can think of would be PB Blaster).

Most of these chemicals are NOT something you want anywhere near your lungs and before you say it, many also lubricate parts so they are water resistant ie. they wont always wash off easy.

I vote no.

Guys listen...the purge valve on Nours is just like all others but you have to get a pair of pliers and turn it and it will pry loose. There will be a little bb in there for sure. Put some veggie oil on it and problem solved

EDIT: Also, I forgot to add that when you put the purge cap back on, make sure it is hand tight so that it will be easy to get to the bb if the problem happens again
