Default Mya/Mod Hookah Purge

So I've read that one of the biggest differences between the Mya/Mod hookahs and the Egyptian/Syrian hookahs is that the Mya/Mods have a hard time purging correctly.

Is there any corrective action to make them function better? Mods or methods to better the functionality?

Thanks

it depends on the hookah, My qt purges like crap because the hose port is practicly pointing right at it... The egyptians/syrian's have two seperate ports that point directly down into the base... thats mainly why they purge more eficient...

I've been working on making a purge tube for my Mya but my AF hookah has been distracting me. It might be a while before I finish it...

Is the lack of efficiency with the mod's purge system something to worry about, or more of a moot point?

Not really. If you've got your setup down pretty good you won't need to purge really. If you do get harsh smoke that you want to purge, just hand the hose to the person you like least.

A KM/Syrian will have a better draw than a Mya also. I've replaced the aluminum stem tube in mine with a wider bore stainless steel tube and it still has a noticeable more restrictive pull than my AF medium solid despite it only being 1/32" less in diameter. It's mainly because of the amount of connections/joints in it so it can be broken down into it's individual parts, which is great for portability and cleaning in a sink.
