Yeah, they are great for clearing stale smoke in the chamber or if it gets harsh.

Honestly, it's not a huge issue if you know how to manage your coal.

Purge comes in handy if you burn your tobacco and need to clear out your bottle. That's it.

People get all excited like "OMG I CAN PURGE MY HOOKAH .72 SECONDS!!!!1" but honestly it doesn't matter.

Like they said its to clear the chamber if you burn your shisha but if you watch your heat you will never need to use it.

Having the purge is there to clear old or burnt tasting smoke from your vase. If you manage your heat well, it's not really necessary. Actually, I generally use my purge for when the dog is sniffing around the hookah. A quick shot of purge and he backs away mystified. Smoke happy. (when I set up my QT for two hoses, it doesn't even have a purge option anymore.)
