Default KM w/out ball bearing?

Hi guys!
My friend ordered a KM Kafae (or Cafe, as the shop calls it) from hookahshop.co.uk. The pipe has arrivied to him, but inside the valve he doesn't find ball bearing. Is this correct with KM pipes? I don't believe that KM pipes don't need that important attachment. Does he need to buy this ball or the KMs have got another solution to not suck that clean air just the smoke?
Thank you very much, and please don't offense my english, I'm Hungarian .
Greetings from Hungary!

bb balls cost like 50p or half a dollar w,e.

Just phone your vendor up to send them your bb, okay but you do need a bb so that ur drag is air tight, the extra air will kill smoke.

for a temporary measure stick some tissue in the ball bearing this will make ur smoking THICCCCK then remove topurge

It should have come with one. Check if it is stuck in the purge cap. It can be replaced with an airsoft BB or other similarly sized ball bearing. The vendor should be willing to send one if it was missing.

An airsoft BB should work approach the vendor to send you one. a steel bearing can also be purchased at a bicycle repair shop should either be 8 or 6 mm that is the standard sizes but the hookahs purge valves vary between those two.

Thank you very much, I think I will contact with the shop then. Otherwise, not this issue is the first one since we ordered the hookah. First, we wanted to buy a KM World Cup, but they told us that it has been sold out. "Thats OK", we said, they gave us preference if we buy another hookah. This Kafae seemed to be very good at all, and also very cheap, so we bought twice of this. Then they told the bowl which this pipe has also been sold out, we said ok to this one too. They attached an Aladin 2 side bowl, which was broken when my friend opened the box. We always wanted to buy a Vortex, so we don't take care of this little disappointment. The hose is also not an original KM hose, it's a rust resistant EX-L (please don't ask what type of this, I don't know about it). Now I ask 1 f..king question: when someone wants to buy a good waterpipe, especially a Khalil Mamoon, which is one of the best hookah mark out there, all elements of the hookah should be broken, out of stock or ... miss? I think no, it shouldn't. We will contact with this seller, and give them a very BIG negative request. Oh, I'm exhausted now. Anyway, thanks for all that help, see you guys later, and good smoke to everyone!

Airsoft BB's have saved lots of angry hours for me and my hookahs.

Yeah if you don't have any airsoft BB's they are usually pretty easy to find. Most of my friends as well as myself have guns so its pretty easy to find a bottle of them laying around. Thats what my friend and I use for our hookah anyway.

If they sent you one of these

they are really good hoses and washable so in the long run will be better then the KM ones, but i know they should have sent what was advertised
