Thats your purge valve. When you smoke,have you ever noticed the smoke gets harsh.Just blow through your hose and watch the smoke come out the valve. You should do this every third or fourth pull to remove the carbon monoxide also.

What BigE said, it is a purge valve for clearing harsh or stale smoke. I ve never heard about clearing it every 3rd or 4th pull to clear CO tho.

Lol I agree with the dumb posts but we were there once, and if we weren't we could have been. Anyways theres another dumb post on here as well, "how do i know when i'm done smoking and the bowls done, usually I just light up another coal". Thats the best one yet.

all I have to say is, for alot of people smoking is a way to unwind... I personaly like expereminting with different setups etc... but for most people they just want to sit back and enjoy the ride and don't care how it works just that it does its job... so as funny as the stuff is, I try to look at it from their shoes... so my awnser is that is the magic tube that lets you blow out evil smoke.... Just becareful not to lose the magic globe inside the tube other wise all is lost... lol
