Default I hate it when...

i blow air into the hookah to cool off the bowl and i blow too hard... and water travels up the stem and into the bowl -_-
it goes:
*blow*
*sizzle*
"Crap!"
something along those lines -_-

curse my tuba lungs.

this means ur purge valve is clogged, or the ball bearing is stuck.

I once had to push a wire through the purge valve heart hole to push out a stuck ball bearing.

Make sure you clean your purge valve thoroughly to avoid it rusting or getting clogged or to avoid the ball bearing getting stuck, replace a rusted ball bearing with a shiny new stainless steel one. And always, ALWAYS test ur purge valve before you smoke(after you fill the rig without mounting the bowl) and make sure that when you pull, it is closed and when you blow it opens.

My friend jon does that shit all the time. He's no longer allowed to purge the hookah anymore.... He's got power lungs and it's like you can blow but don't BLOW!

I've done that a couple of times as well, but not only with water, sometimes it's juices from the shisha squirting up onto the coals. Same result, coals out, session ruined, can't taste anything but burnt tobacco!

Big lungs haha, can happen when as much air as possible is shooting out the purge valve, so the next path of least resistance is up the stem.

i did it through my km (32"). i didn't think that i had enough water over the bottom of the stem to actually travel up to the bowl.
The purge valve works, but i'm still going to clean it out like ya'll suggested. couldn't hurt, even if it is working correctly. i have a plastic/glass bb in there, but i think i'll switch it with one of my air soft bb's
