Bongs & Water Pipes
Water pipes or bongs have been around for years, and are a popular option among herb and concentrate consumers because of their water filtration, unique designs, and ease of use.
We offer a wide variety of bongs & water pipes for sale that are made from heavy duty borosilicate glass through other durable materials such as silicone bongs.
What to Consider When Buying a Bong or Water Pipe
- What do you prefer to smoke, dry herb or wax concentrates? If you plan on smoking dry herb, you’ll want a bong that includes a bowl. In order to use a water pipe for dabbing, a quartz banger or glass nail is required. If you want a glass piece for dabbing, shop our dab rigs.
- Different bong sizes. Water pipes can vary in size from large to mini bongs. Also, the bowls come in 10mm, 14mm or 18mm joint size and can be either male or female connections.
- Material the water pipe is made from. Bongs are most commonly made out of glass, but can also be constructed from acrylic, silicone, wood, metal or ceramic.
- Cleaning your bong. Proper maintenance is important with almost anything you buy, that’s why it’s crucial to keep your glass clean for the best performance and flavor. Start with our glass cleaning guide and make it into your own ritual.
Types of Bongs
A contributing factor to bongs becoming so popular is the diverse performance they offer. From the style/design to their functionality, we carry an excellent selection of water pipes so you’re likely to find something that fits your personality.
Getting their name from the laboratory glass, beaker bongs are a well-known style of water pipe that feature a wide base for stability and a larger volume of smoke. So you’re less likely to knock over bongs with a beaker style bottom and able to hold more water than their straight tube cousins.
Straight Tube Bongs
A very simple style of water pipe, straight tube bongs are great beginner smokers. They provide water filtration in a straight tube design and generally feature removable downstems that make them easy to clean. They do carry less water than their beaker base counterpart, which should be considered if you’re seeking large hits.
If the smooth hits possible is your goal, then percolator bongs (perc bongs) are what you’re looking for. These bongs feature internal glass components that force the smoke through several small holes during filtration. This provides maximum surface area contact between the smoke you’re generating and the water in your bong.
Are you clumsy and worried about breaking an expensive glass bong? Take a look at silicone bongs which are growing in popularity for their durability, as they’re virtually unbreakable. Most feature a glass downstem and slide, while some cheaper models are metal, but those are the only components you’ll ever need to replace.
Thick Glass Bongs
Concerned about breaking your water pipe, but REALLY want a glass bong over any other material? There are a lot of thick glass bongs that offer heavy duty durability and reliable performance. Look for water pipes that are 7mm or more if you want a super thick bong.
Ideal for those who want a discreet option for their water filtered hits, mini bongs are the way to go. These compact water pipes are also the best portable bongs available, great if you’re frequently on the road. The miniature nature of these bongs also help to conserve your dry herb as their bowls and chambers are often smaller.
Similar, but not exactly the same as bongs, dab rigs are water pipes designed to “dab” wax concentrates. They don’t use a bowl, instead require a quartz banger or nail that is heated for dabbing. The oil being dabbed is instantly vaporized and travels through the chamber being filtered by water in the process.
Components of a Bongs
Slide or Bowl
A bong bowl, also commonly referred to as a slide, is the part of your water pipe that holds the dry herb. They are available in a range of sizes (10mm, 14mm or 18mm) and are either male or female which slides into the downstem. If you are purchasing a replacement bowl for a bong, then it’s important to know the joint size.
Another crucial component of a bong is the downstem, which receives the bowl and extends down into the water for filtration. Removable downstems usually are diffused, meaning they feature little holes to create smaller air bubbles when filtering your smoke. A bong with a non-removable downstem is likely to include a percolator, also referred to as a “perc” which often have more slits than a standard diffused downstem. However, both styles allow more surface area of the smoke to contact the water, which provides a smoother experience than a downstem that doesn’t include some form of diffusion.
If you’re a clean freak or just want to maintain your bong a bit easier, then you’ll be interested in ashchatchers and how they perform. An ashcatcher acts as a line of defense between your bowl and downstem by catching the ash in a water filled or sometimes dry chamber before going through the main filtration. Shop our selection of ashcatchers and upgrade your bong for an even smoother experience.
For those seeking the coldest of hits and water filtration just isn’t enough, look for water pipes with an ice pinch formed into the tube. This pinch will catch and hold ice to prevent it from dropping all the way down into the water. With ice in the tube of your bong, the smoke is filtered through water and then further cooled by the ice. Getting chilly yet?
