Yes, you cause a little water to move up the stem forcing a little smoke out the bowl. Clearing slower it will happen less.

Make sure that the purge ball is not stuck or else you will end up with a hookah volcano! :O From my experience, it sucks...

If its from a bad weld job, chances are it is solid and you can't just "poke it out". Try taking a jewlers file, rat-tail (completely round) and file it down. You can fine them at Home Depo or any hardware store. Worst comes to Worst, take a drill bit slightly smaller then the port hole and drill it out.

smoke will always come from the bowl, youre forcing air up up the stem, its not bad.
