Default Auto-Seal Functionality

Hi guys, I ordered a MYA QT 2 Hose. And most of the web pages announce that the hoses it comes with have the "auto-seal" functionality.
I wanna know how can I determine if my MYA QT came with the legit Hoses that have the "Auto-Seal" Functionality as advertised

the auto-seal is located in the stem, inside the hose ports, so you can plug any hose into it and it will still have an auto-seal function. i do not know if you can take out a mya's auto-seal, because i have never owned one.

alls auto seal is is a ball bearing inside your hose adapter, they do work well but you should keep them maintnsed as if the ball bearing isnt cleaned it does get sticky and stuck from time to time.

yeah, some people insist on oiling their bearing, i found that useing water worked fine, though for long term use you may want to try the lemon juice and beaking soda method, samw way you would clean the rest of your hookah.

the mya qt adapter's autoseal is located inside the hoseport. The ballbearing is held in place with a screw. You can uscrew and clean the ball bearing. I have a modded QT icechiller 2 hose, and I left one of my ports non autoseal for a purge. Girls LOL when the hose shoots smoke into my eye.

for my current hookah i use a gun cleaning kit(like 23 diffrent brushes and up to about 3-4ft legth of rod) i would suddgest anything that works really. try not to use something that will scratch your insides out, stick to a firm or soft metaeria nothing like steel wool thats bad news.
