Default Mya Auto-Seal Adapter

Purchased a Mya clear Crystal hookah as well as an extra valve and hose to turn it into a 2-hose unit. The extra hose adapter came with a ball bearing of its own. So I have 2 hoses, 2 adapters, and 2 ball bearings. Question: How do I properly use the auto-seal feature to avoid having to hold a finger over the hose when two are smoking from the hookah? Do I put a ball bearing in each hose adapter or just one of them?? Probably should have been able to figure this out on my own, but figured I'd save my brain some thinking and ask the experts.

the ball-bearing should already come inside the hose adapter

It did. There is a little screw in the extra adapter that I purchased. Is that to keep the ball bearing in the adapter? If so, why wouldn't I need one on the other adapter too, because only one has it (the screw).

I think both of 'em. If it is already inside of the adapter, then you don't need to take it out or put in a new one? Hehe sorry I'm kinda groggy and I can't read correctly lol

Okay, so correct me if I'm wrong. the way it works is...when two hoses are attached, and each has a ball bearing in it, the one person sucking (this is starting to sound graphic, lol) causes the ball bearing in their hose to release it's seal and the other person's will be pulled down and produce a seal?? Again...I hate to sound dumb, but want to get it right.

Hehe yeah that is exactly what will happen and its a good thing too so no smoke will escape from any hose

I used to have an auto seal in my cheap chinese made hookah (the first one I ever bought). The thing that sucked was that there was no purge valve so we had to smoke with stale smoke sometimes :\

If am right you are saying that the hose port that came with your hookah has no BB so when the second person draws you need to close the 1st hose. I dont know how the stock mya port is so i cant help you but i maybe helped others understand.

Actually, both the port already on the hookah as well as the extra adapter I ordered both have a ball bearing with them. I was just asking about how to properly use the auto seal feature.

one hose port will NOT be an auto-seal (that is so you can use that port to clear the hookah.

All the other ports will have a ball bearing in them, and a screw in the side of the hose port to keep the ball from falling out or getting sucked up the hose.

Mya Adapters come in 2 styles, one with a screw and a bearing, one with no screw (or hole for the screw) and no bearing. I use the plain one for me, so i can purge, and the other 3 ports are auto-seal. In some Adapters, the screw placement is a little too high and will make it impossible to find a grommet that works inside of it (the hose slips out with the grommet attatched). I have yet to find a way to fix this problem (without ghetto0izing it).

Once again...thank you all for helping me understand how this system works. Very helpful comments and discussion. ) Up till now, I've just been using the thumb method when smoking with my friends. Might have to give the auto-seal a try to see if I like it or not.
