Default Purging a 3 hose hookah?

So I have a 3 house Sahara stem with a bohemian vase and I can't seem to find a way to clear the smoke chamber by purging through it. The 3 hoses are each blocked by a ball bearing and it resists from blowing into the hoses. Is there any way I could purge through the hoses?

You might be able to remove the ball bearing like a mya hookah and the purge it, but ive had no experience with a sahara smoke hookah so im not much help

If you can remove the ball bearing from the hose port then remove one of them and make that the main port you use. That hose will be able to blow through and purge the chamber.

remove the ball bearing and make that your master hose, that you will always use so you know to plug it, then just purge though a diffrent hose.

you cant remove the ball bearings from a sahara hookah. they are bolted in.
the only way you could do it right now is by removing one of the hose ports and then blowing through the hole. (out of context)
be careful though, this can be the end result of coals falling onto your head. (out of context)

if you REALLY want to be able to purge, then you could get a non-autoseal hose adapter from sahara and connect it to the stem.
but you would only be able to purge thru one hose, and out the other two.

or you can buy 3 non-autoseal adapters and purge with any hose.
but if you do that then you have to plug 2 hoses while smoking.

sahara rigs are tricky, i wasn't able to purge thru mine so i just learned proper heat management and it was no problem after that.

Yeah, I've been having to take the stem out and then blowing through the vase as a way to purge. And yes the ball bearings are bolted in which makes it difficult. Maybe a solution to this is to get a new one hose hookah..haha.

or you could buy a hookah of a little bit better quality without autoseal.

I had this same problem with my old hookah. I took the ball bearing out of one of the hoses (also bolted in, i ripped it out with a screw driver..). That became the master hose. I then marked off one of the hose ports as a purge only port (making it a two hose), and left the other one alone. So, I always had the master hose, my asshole friends could never remember to cover it, the other hose was functional, and when i purged through the master, i didn't have to worry about smoke coming out of the other hose. Really more trouble than it was worth, i just bought a quality one hose mya.
