Default hookahs cant purge!

i hate to rant again about stupid hookah lounges but heres a funny story. i was at my local hookah lounge in Woodbridge,VA and this couple next to me is smokin out of a knockoff chinese rig thatd you find at your nearest hookah lounge and the smoke starts getting too thick for her and shes coughing. her "boyfriend" (im guessing) stood up and took the coals off the bowl blew off the ash then told his girlfriend to blow in. she starts blowing really hard (no pun intended) to purge the smoke and water comes spewing out of the top of the hookah into the bowl and all in the ashtray extinguishing there coals and the bowl. the owner came over and said in a extremly heavy middle eastern accent, "You blow out? you can only blow in! hookah you sucking not blowing! if you want new one you must buy" i felt like i shouldve gotten into this conversation and told the guy off but decided instead to just watch and laugh. I found it funny that he told this women that. For the rest of her hookah smoking like she will think hookahs cant purge. and i bet her boyfriend felt like a total douchebag. (excuse my language)

This happened to me at "Sahara East" lounge in NYC, and they repacked the bowl with fresh shisha and coals for free.

Yea they did that for me here the first couple times I did it. All depends on the people. But then again, you could get those stupid ones where they replace the bearing with paper

To purge those damn things I had to seperate the stem and base, blow, and reseal.

Moral of the story:

Lounges should use KMs as should everyone else.

I had my purge stick and kill my session too. plastic bb's are the way to go if your purge keeps getting stuck.

The ones here use bulk coals. They always put three no matter the size and all of the hookahs are common chamber hookahs. Remove a coal and blow that is all you can do. At least the purge valves relieve some of the pressure so we have never had the water in the bowl problem but we found that we can clear it out with quick short bursts. It pisses them off but really if they would just give us tongs and allow us to regulate a little then it wouldn't be as much of a problem. If we are feeling lazy and just really in the mood for some Nakhla DA and some great food we will go to Lizzy's where we get total control after it is set up and everything.

The hookahs at 360 Can't Purge either, there isn't even a purge valve in exsistance. There like old Brass Hookahs, they arent' pretty to look at, but besides not being able to Purge, they work like a charm.
(They don't even have a tray, and the bowl is friggen huge, so they have to put the Sisha and Coals WAY down in the bowl.) But it works.
