Default purge prob

Ok I just got a new KM hookah its a 36" Perl blue it smokes great, but i have one prob the purge doesnt seem to work at all. Unless i totally take the top off the value Im not fully sure why. what i have seen that's different about the top of this one that's not the same as my others it there aren't any holes or cuts that would let air out of it and so im not sure how it should purge or whats messed up on it. if it would help i can put pics up of the purge. hopefully someone can help me out here thanks.

Disreguard what I said earlier

Oh didnt read it fully.
Try blowing into the cap and seeing if there is anyway of air coming out.
Most likely as Mad Hatter said, you may need a new cap

If what your described is actually the case then that sound like a real problem. Pictures would do wonders toward solving this problem.

So you're saying that there aren't any holes in the cap whatsoever? If thats the case, contact the vendor and let them know. Thats not cool

yea there are no holes in the cap at all or in the threading to let the smoke out that way either. I know its not the ball cause it works fine with the cap off.

Those caps normally have holes under the cap they are small holes.

You can get a new purge cap for $2 or $3 .. or you can talk to the vendor and they should provide u with a new one. Also, u can drill some holes.

def get one from the vender if you can.. and if you want a spare drill holes in the one that you have now. should only take a min and it will be good as new.

also for added advice. replace the steel ball with an AirSoft BB pellet. it will keep it from rusting inside your hookah. just a tip, cuz we all have that issue sooner or later
