Default Question about my old hookah

Well i baught a imported hookah from egypt a while back and it came with no purge valve and so i figured damn maybe they were just being sloppy while making it but then i came across this stem http://www.hookahhookah.com/store/ca...e_2_c_253.html

now my question is why was it made with no purge valve or was it just a style etiquette.

I believe whoever makes those stems are just extremely lazy or only make them for quick profit. More expensive to make a purge valve.

I have the four hose adapter of that stem, and it is not the best quality concerning the welding and the uneven hose ports. Yet, it still hits like a champ and very air-tight.

I've seen the one from H00kah-Hookah before, but I thought maybe it was a messed up picture. The only thing I can think of is it's a cheap - mass produced stem as "whatas" said.

Why they would do that, since even the cheap chinese knock off's have purge vavles, is a mystery. Strange - maybe the people who produced it had no idea what the valve was there for, thus omitted it from their stem.

So, you have tried blowing thru your stem, right? Nothing happens?

Maybe the stem was just left off the design!? It happens...and rather than to throw them away, they are trying to sell them, without a purge valve...?
