Its because when you cleaned your hookah, you didnt dry the ball bearing and it got stuke, happened to me before so i also give it a practice purge before i start

Must have a short hookah? Sometimes this happens where my purge gets stuck however don't you feel it before the water goes all the way up the stem?

When I clean my hookah, i have the auto seal system double hose, so I take those two ball bearings plus the one in the purge valve which is useless with the autoseal because you cant purge but after cleaning them I put them in olive oil and it keeps them from sticking. I also use a qtip and put oil in the bottom part of the hooah hose port that holds the BB's and I never have a problem with them sticking.

+1 to patel.

That happend to me befoe and like patel said it does get stuck in there from the water so ever since I had this happend to me I always take out the purge valve and ball bearing and leave it to air dry until I use my hookah again.

replace the BB with maybe a plastic one.

When you clean your hookah consider cleaning the purge valve too.

use lube.

you gota clean that bb, it needs to be clean and dry before you start smoking and even then might still get a bit stuck so you never blow hard enough to send water up the stem

If you were having a perfect session why were you clearing the smoke out anyway?
