Default Ever had a stuck purge valve and not know it?

I was smoking some af two apples with my friend and for some reason he likes to clear the chamber a lot but when he did, nothing would come out so he blew harder and all the water came out the top through the bowl! Has that ever happened to anyone?

It took so long to get the bearing out of the hole. I don't know why but it was covered in some black sticky substance. I should switch it out for a plastic BB.

Yeap - ruined a perfectly good bowl of AF Golden Esk Apple @ party. She didn't do it on purpose (gurl @ party, was her first time smoking a hookah), but it still was the last bowl we ended up smoking that evening.

Yeah that happend to me before. Party fowl...
Now I wash the purge valve and rinse off the ball bearing after I'm done with a session or two.

when you purge, the smoke (glycerin and flavorings) stains the ball bearing just like it does your stem and the purge valve. so you should clean that stuff, or use a plastic pellet.

Wow! That must suck. Hasn't happened to me yet (knock on wood).

I will be sure to keep my purge clean.

Yes, and it sucked.

I was using my MYA nou nou and I didn't know the purge ball bearing was stuck when I was trying to purge the smoke out. Hookah volcano!

Happened with my KM as well!
