Add the Perfect Amount of Water to Your Bong
Get the best bong rips from your bubbler by adding the perfect amount of water every time
There are several different kinds of bongs or bubblers to choose from. They can be simple and straightforward or bongs can be really complicated, but they all need water to work the way they’re supposed to. From itty bitty Beaker Bongs to Triple Honeycomb Double Percolator Mega Chamber Bongs, get the best hit from a bubbler by knowing how much water to put in it.
No matter the size, type, color or complexity of your bong, the most important part is that all the components that filter the smoke through water are working properly. That means it bubbles and glubs in all the right places. Above all else, make sure that the end of your down stem is submerged and any slits or holes are also covered with water.
How Much Water Should You Put in a Bong?
How much water to put in your bong depends on what kind of bubbler you are using. Each has that sweet spot for maximizing each hit without it splashing up and giving you a nasty little Poseidon’s Kiss of dirty bong water. Gross.
Different Kinds of Bongs:
●Double Perc Bong
●Double Chamber Bong
To avoid the gross bong water from splashing up into the mouth piece the water level can’t be too high but it needs to at least cover the end of the downstem. If the smoke isn’t being pulled through the water then the bong is not working properly.
How Much Water to Put in a Beaker Bong
A beaker bong is your simplest style water bubbler. It gets the name from its design- it looks like a beaker you’d see in a science lab. It doesn’t get much easier to fill a bong than this. Just pour water into it through the mouthpiece and fill it just enough to cover the downstem. Then you are good to go.
How Much Water to Put in a Honeycomb Bong
Honeycomb bongs start to get a little more complex. These have a disc built into them that use dozens of small holes to filter the water and smoke. This lessens the drag and makes for smoother more consistent hits.
Instead of through the mouthpiece, you add water through the stem until it reaches a bit more than halfway to the honeycomb disc. Taking a hit from the honeycomb bong will move water through the holes and in some cases it will drip back into the chamber or rest on top. Either is fine as long as it pulls easily.
Double and Triple Honeycomb Bongs are only different in the amount of honeycomb discs, but work just the same. To fill a triple or double honeycomb bong with water, slowly pour a small amount into the mouthpiece and alternate blowing into it to push the water down into each chamber. Tilt the bong until water falls to enough to slightly cover each of the honeycombs.
How Much Water to Put in a Percolator Bong
A fun bong to smoke from is a percolator bong. Percolator bubblers are easy to use and fill with water. Pour enough through the mouthpiece that it fills almost halfway. Make sure any holes or slits are covered and that the downstem is submerged.
Double Percs are cool, too. Just like a single perc bong, you pour water into the mouthpiece enough to fill the second chamber. Then blow into the bong to push the water into the bottom chamber until both are about halfway filled. Then start puffing.
How Much Water to Put in Double Chamber Bong
Double your smoking fun with a double chamber water bong. To fill a double chamber bong with water, fill the bottom chamber from the stem hole, and the top chamber from the mouthpiece. Make sure both chambers are filled enough to cover any holes or slits and enjoy!
Before You Go
Remember that each bong is going to have its own sweet spot for the water level. Your personal preference, whether you add ice to your bong, or the last time you cleaned your bong can all affect how well it works.
●If you add ice to your bong, make sure to put that in first before adding the water.
●It’s easier to add more water to a bong than it is to empty it
●Clean your bong often
●Always use fresh, clean, cold water to fill your bong
