Percolator bongs are made with percolators, which are extra pieces in the body of the bong that help diffuse the smoke of dry herbs into the water. Percolators can be located at the exit point in the downstem or above the main water reservoir. Percolator bongs can have one or several percolators built inside!
Flavor chasers love percolator bongs because of the smoother, cooler hits they provide when compared to traditional bongs. When smoke goes through the percolators, it is forced apart, which allows more smoke to come into contact with the water before exiting the main water reservoir. Since more smoke spends more time in the water, it allows the hit to cool down and helps remove particles that may have slipped in while smoking.
The result is a super-smooth, super-cool hit without the extra particles that can create a harsh feeling in your lungs or induce a coughing fit.
Percolator bongs come in all different kinds of shapes, designs, materials, and sizes, so there are some important points to consider before purchasing one. For starters, you will want to decide what material you want your percolator bong to be made from. Most will be made from glass, which has the benefit of providing a consistently clean, crisp flavor, but is more fragile and are more prone to breaking. This is especially true of percolator bongs since the added percolator pieces add to what can break or crack. The intricate nature of glass percolator bongs also adds to their price, so it isn’t uncommon to find products that are $100 or more.
If you are concerned about breaking your bong, you may want to consider a silicone percolator bong. These can be entirely silicone or be a hybrid of silicone and glass pieces. Silicone has the benefit of being extremely durable and much less expensive than glass. However, silicone percolator bongs can be difficult to find, as the market leans primarily towards a glass construction.
Once you have landed on the material, the next factor to consider is what kind or how many percolators you want inside your bong. Some simple designs have only one percolator, and it may be built into the ice catcher on the downstem. This kind of design is going to be the closest to a budget-friendly design as you can get, since the simpler a glass percolator bong is, the less expensive it tends to be.
Other percolator bongs can have multiple percolators within them. They can be located at the end of the downstem but also above the water reservoir. This forces the smoke to repeatedly diffuse into the water, which helps cool the smoke down, remove harsh particles, and provide better water filtration for the bong. However, glass percolator bongs with several kinds of percolators inside tend to be on the more expensive side, so be sure to consider your budget before you start shopping.
There are plenty of reasons to buy a percolator bong. If you don’t have a bong yet, it’s a great piece of equipment to start with, especially if you are concerned about dealing with harsh, hot hits that you get from dry pipes. If you already have a bong, a percolator bong is an upgrade in hardware, allowing you to enjoy hits that are even smoother and cooler than you have experienced.
