Default Chamber

This is a gap in my hookah knowledge, so I thought I'd throw it out here:

Hookah stem chambers. My understanding is that there is separate
and single/common chambers. What are the pros and cons of each
what should the average hookah buyer choose and why?

Traditional (separate chambers) are found on all hookahs built by hand. There is one tube that goes to the hose port, one that goes to the purge valve.

Common chambers, like Myas and most Chinese and some Syrian rigs, have a heart chamber that is hollow, with no tubes, just space. These are harder to clean. SOme Common chambers have a plate covering them, with holes drilled in. This constricts the pull.

Traditional Chambers, I can't think of any cons. They purge efficiently and are very easy to clean.

Common chambers, in the case of plated commons, are literally impossible to clean the inside. Normal common chambers, on a Mya, are easier to clean, but still mroe difficult than the Tarditionals. Common Chambers purge about 1/5 as well (judging by the amount of smoke left in the vase after purge).

so then the other question comes to if you just cut the plate off on a common chamber you would have a traditional chamber basically. or at least easier to clean rig and shouldnt hurt smoking at all

There are no tubes connected to the plate connected to the hose port and purge valve, it is just a plate covering a common chamber, that has holes in it. And usually it is welded on, there is no way to get it off with normal commercial products.
