Is the 3-Hose a modern hookah with flow-back valves ? If not, were the other two members of your session plugging their hoses while people were trying to draw ?

If yes to either of the above, check for leaks. Make sure the bowl grommet fits correctly, make sure the vase grommet fits correctly.

Did you have enough holes in the foil ? Too few holes will restrict airflow to the point of not being able to get any smoke, or on the flip side, did you have so many holes that the amount of incoming air dissipated the smoke before it got to you ?

Is there something in the stem ? Wash it out and make sure.

make sure your purge valve has a ball in it, and if it does make sure its sitting on the air tube

i know someone that smoked with his purge off. hes retarded and says it makes the smoke smoother. he also never cleans his hookah, leaves the same water in it and presses down on the coal when he inhales and then opens it up and stirs it

Moderns Hookahs have what are called a "Common Chamber"



The hose port and the purge valve share the same space, relatively inefficient at removing smoke from the base should it turn harsh or stale.

KMs and other Traditional Egyptian rigs have this kind of chamber :



Where each port has its own dedicated tube, makes it easier to purge smoke from the base, and gives you a smoother draw when inhaling.

This post brought to you by my terrible MSPaint skills, since I dont have photoshop installed right now.
