Default Hard to Pull

So i just got a new Egyptian hookah off hookah-shisha less than a month ago. Ive had no problems with it until last night. This hookah is a three hose but i was only using to of them. One of the hoses was getting great smoke and great pull but the other was getting barely any pull and it seemed like the smoke was backing up because it came out the top. I switched the hoses so i know it wasnt the hoses. then i cleaned the ball bearings but it still didnt help out a lot. Any help out there?

this happened to me about a month ago,
clean your hookah hardcore, check the holes in the foil and make sure they are big enough for good airflow. next replace the bearings with some plastic airsoft BB's.

also make sure you wet the part of the hose that goes into the hose port.

if none of those help, then im clueless.

I'm going to say start simple. I always say first pull on the hose removed from the hookah but you have that settled.

Next time this happens (being very carful) remove the coals, put them in your tray. carfully remove the boal and put it foil side down on something that wont melt or burn like a plate or if you have somehting you use to bring the coals to the hookah.

with the bowl over turned, use the poking took attached to your tongs and run it though the holes of the bowl a few times each hole gingerly. replace the bowl and smoke. If that worked then you over packed.

If not break it down and check the parts. Look down the stem, check the hose port and so on.

get back to u when you can.
