syrians are usually harder to clear than egyptians. this is because they have a hollow common chamber. you might want to try using part of a bendy straw to "extend" the hose part at the bottom of the heart though. just be warned of getting water in your hose.

yeah thats the quick way lol. just make sure to put the bearing back in though cause if you have someone over and your not paying attention one of you are gonna have to cap the hose. ive done that numerous times. it got to the point i just got foam ear plugs and threw them in 2 of the 3 ports and puffed away lol

that's what I did (removed the ball in the autoseal systems) - thankfully only 1 syrian has this issue, so I'm happy

Yes, make sure you don't have a ball in ONE of the hose ports. and use that hose port to clear your hookah. Syrians just don't seem to clear as well as Egyptians, so you will have to figure out how to get that heat management down

Cheers!

I used to have that hookah, I thought it had a traditional chamber, not a common, but I dont remember.

There are many syrians today with common chambers...but there are egpytians with common chambers too... I try to only buy traditional chambers.

As for clearing. If it has an autoseal system, all that means is that there is a ball bearing that will stop you from inhaling air from another hose.

WHAT THIS MEANS:
When you exhale through the hose, you are basically forcing the ball bearing to seal the hose port...making its basically impossible to clear.

Take a ball bearing out of one of the hose ports, usually you just unscrew and there will be a ball there. Make this your dedicated side, the side you will smoke from even if alone, the only issue is if someone wants to use the other hose(s) you will have to plug it with a finger.

My glyph had the same thing, autoseal system, its an annoying feature that is really really really really easy to fix.

Congrats on your syrian brass btw.

I think you got it figured out...but I just have a quick question. So this particular syrian has a chamber similar to the newer myas?
