Question Can I add a hose to a hookah?

I've been with my trusty 10" hookah for a while now and it works great, but I'm ready to upgrade. Let's face it, 10" isn't too impressive.

I figured Black Friday was a great time to get myself a new hookah, but most of the best deals for medium sized hookahs are one one-hosed. I would like to have at least two hoses like my 10" only because I always smoke with a group it seems.

So I was wondering if it is possible to take out the purge valve of a single hose hookah and replace it with a second hose? And is the valve necessary? The one I've got doesn't have one. Also, can I purge a two hose hookah with no valve?

Thanks!

No valve = no purge. Well a crappy purge at least. You will have to have purge out of the other persons hose or if you cap both, water will shoot into your bowl and that my friend = EPIC FAIL.

You can with some, they sell adapters for MYA hookahs for instance.

Yes you can purge a two hose hookah with no valve it will just go out the other hose.

This is what I do when there are multiple people and I don't want anything getting knocked over..

Purging out the other hose is the same as with a purge valve. It will not be "crappy".

Maybe not crappy, but awkward at the very least. Could be I'm too used to the idea that a purge is a purge. Not the hose you smoke out of.

Excuse my noob talk here, but I experimented purging through one hose out the other. There is no water or smoke though, I was just seeing if it worked. I could not blow through one hose until I took the BB out. To purge do I have to always take this out first?

Your hookah has an auto-seal system in it so you wouldn't be able to. The Egyptian multi hose hookahs do not have this so that allows you to purge through the other hose.

I don't know what your budget is but hookahstore.com is having a 30% off deal and here are some multi hose hookahs they have..

I looked at that video for making two hoses. It's not pretty looking, but it works! If I decide to go with a single hose I'll do that. Thanks!

And that tri-hose that you suggested seems pretty good and is in my budget. However, I read somewhere that the more hoses the harder it is to smoke or something? Maybe it doesn't matter as long as everybody is taking turns. I'll keep that one in mind.
