Purge is blowing all the smoke out of the chamber, you usually do this when the smoke gets harsh.

If its from something like 10" and something thats 30" yh it does, but if its a few inches no it wont make much of a difference

Purging is usually done when the smoke gets harsh as stated above but also when the flavor starts tasting "a bit off" otherwise known as stale tasting. I find this helps to keep it fresh and full flavored.

Height doesn't seem to be as big a factor as the make does. I have an 12" Chinese Pumpkin, 18" inch Chinese 2 hose with auto seal (Both Chinese are crap, they have a real tight pull, used for camping trips and such) a 29" MZ, a 30" MZ and a generic Egyptian at 36" (estimated) I find that the MZ's and the Egyptian smoke the same.

Hope that helps.

At my age being cynical and sarcastic is just making small talk.

Height only tends to make a difference in sections.

You'll most likely notice the difference between a 14" and a 24", or from a 24" to a 34".

The longer stem gives the smoke a bit more time to cool, as well as giving you a higher volume of smoke.

Most people won't notice any difference between say, a 16" and an 18" hookah in terms of coolness, density, and flavor.
