Default Yet another problem

Okay so, I started up the hookah every thing was going well untill I decided to blow into the hose, in order to clear the chamber, so I do that then all the water comes up from the base and then puts out MY LAST COAL. (Thankfully SOEX QUICKLITES 10PACK Are only a 1$ where I am from) So that's no problem. Does my Hookah have a blockage?

Hey mate, try cleaning the purge valve with and the ball bearing or whatever they have used in your hookah and take a look at your water level

hope that's something you maybe haven't looked at

Yes this is your problem. Try cleaning it out and maybe even changing the metal ball bearing for a plastic bb from an airsoft gun or something. A little hotwater and some good scrubbing should do the trick.

Its on the opposite side of your hose port. I'm guessing it looks like a little knob or a rod which comes off of your hookah, its down by the base area. There should be a part you can unscrew and clean it.

Take the ball out, the screw top and clean the inside of the purge and then everything else letting them to dry before you put it back on

Yes sir Just like Castro said ^^ i actually need to do this myself with my KM. also if there is a metal ball change it to a plastic BB, i myself have to get one. The gunk and crap wont stick to the plastic as much as it would on the metal.

Substitute the metal ball bearing with a plastic airsoft pellet. Works wonders.

i've almost pulled this stunt many times on the homemade rig my brother uses. its all pvc screw together pieces with a copper tube for a stem, actually smokes very nicely for a $15 diy setup. next time i visit him, i'll get a pic if i remember. anyway, instead of a purge valve, he has a purge hole that's covered w/ tape, so you have to pull the tape up to purge. thankfully he uses a ridiculously long hose, so you notice the back pressure before you cause a volcano. been talkin about gettin him a screw-on nipple for a purge valve or something thin and flexible to use as a reed valve...
