About Percolator Bongs
The actual brilliance of percolator bongs and water pipes lies in their function: the initial purpose of a water pipe is to filter and cool smoke before inhaling. A percolator bong (commonly known as a “perc”) takes filtering to the next level. We’re talking the smoothest hits possible.
They function by generating tiny bubbles as the smoke flows dozens of small holes. This allows the water to interact with the smoke over a larger surface area. While percolators may appear complex, they are meant to provide further filtration to the user. Some have more pieces than others, but the ideal perc is ultimately a matter of personal choice.
Different Types Of Percolator Bongs
Tree percs, UFO percs, and honeycomb percs are just a few examples of percs that can be used in either a straight tube or a beaker design. If you prefer wax to flowers, bongs and percs are also common additions to dab rigs. Keep in mind that they all filter, diffuse, and cool the smoke in slightly different ways.
Tree percolators use a variety of slitted “branches” which forms more bubbles.
Stereo Percolators are percolators for your glass bong or dab rig that features a matrix-style grid pattern of slits. The slits go all the way around the perc, allowing for 360-degree water diffusion.
Swiss Percolators are truly a site to behold with the multiple holes in the glass resembling Swiss cheese.
Inline percolators are basically a long cylinder with slits. These are excellent for producing a large number of bubbles.
Inset percolators are easily some of the sickest looking pieces which are usually constructed of tinted glass and sits inside the main chamber, forcing smoke and vapors around it, which in turn filters and diffuses the smoke.
Turbine percolators allow smoke and bubbles to spin around in a mini tornado, which is incredibly fascinating to watch.
Showerhead Percolators are glass discs covered in a series of perforations to resemble a shower head. Smoke spreads across the disc’s surface before diffusing into the bong water through the microscopic holes.
Honeycomb Percolators get their name from the honeycomb looking disc they use.
